Degrees That Build Upon Your Military Service

Offering special tuition rates for our active military, veterans, and dependents

Welcome to Colorado Mountain College, and thank you for your honorable service to our  country. Your service and sacrifice for your country will not be forgotten.

To honor your service, we offer a 25% tuition discount off of your tuition classification rate to those who qualify.  This discount is for Veterans, Active-Duty Military, their spouses and dependents (dependents under 23-years-of-age).

To be considered for the Military Tuition Discount, provide the following:

  1. A complete CMC application for admissions, indicating your military status.
  2. Provide a copy of a DD-214 showing any discharge status other than dishonorable. A Military ID may be acceptable when a DD-214 is not available.
  3. A complete FAFSA*. (Students using Military Tuition Assistance or VA Educational Benefits are not required to submit the FAFSA.)

*Your FAFSA must be official and complete, including any follow-up requirements that may be requested. Submitting the FAFSA does not require you to accept grants or loans.

This discount is not available for online programs or a semester of all online courses. This discount was approved by the Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees to honor U.S. veterans, active-duty military and their families.

“Honestly, for any veteran out there looking at schools, this is the place. You have more one-on-one time with your teachers, and build a stronger bond with your classmates. And what better place to go to school than in the mountains?”   -Silvestre Arvizo, Resort Management and Business Administration

We offer a variety of programs to help you obtain your educational objectives.  We strive to complement the skills you learned while serving and would like to teach you new skills that will help you excel as a civilian or a member of the active duty ranks.

Some of your military training can usually be used as college credit and we’ll review all of your training to see how it can be applied towards a degree or certificate program.  This website will help you navigate the process of applying for and receiving VA benefits, including the Post 9/11 GI Bill.

If you will soon become separated from the military, please see our Veterans Page for everything you need to know about attending Colorado Mountain College after your enlistment.
