  • Apply for Admission

    Complete and submit the Colorado Mountain College (CMC) Admission Application either online or at the CMC location you want to attend. There is no cost to apply.

  • Send Academic Transcripts

    High school transcripts are only required if enrolling within 5 years of graduation. Ask your high school to submit it electronically (such as Naviance) or to the address below.

    The college/university you attended must send your official transcripts directly to CMC for evaluation. Send to:

    Colorado Mountain College
    Registrar's Office
    802 Grand Avenue
    Glenwood Springs, CO, 8160

    Or email to registrar@coloradomtn.edu

  • Obtain Basecamp Student Portal Credentials

    Basecamp will be your applicant and student portal.  This is home for important information and your student email.  You will access Basecamp (login required) frequently through the duration of your time with CMC.

    Please watch your personal email inbox for your student account and Basecamp information.

  • Submit Test Scores (if applicable)

    Many college credit courses require students to be prepared in Reading, English and Mathematics. Submit your scores if you have taken the ACT or SAT tests within the last five (5) years or make arrangements to take the Accuplacer placement test at CMC. See the CMC ACT/SAT College Codes.

  • Pay for College

    You can pay in full, set up a CMC payment plan or apply for Federal financial aid through FAFSA (apply here with CMC Federal School Code 004506). There is money available, including scholarships, to help pay for tuition and other expenses.

  • Explore Housing

    If you do not currently live near your campus, explore your housing options. The most affordable housing options are offered through on-campus housing provided for students in Leadville, Spring Valley-Glenwood Springs and Steamboat Springs.

    First year students under the age of 21 will be required to live on-campus if attending one of these three campuses.

    Learn about housing options.

  • Seek Advising

    Not all students will need academic advising but it is a good idea if you are seeking a certificate or degree. Make an appointment with a CMC College Counselor. They will help you set up the appropriate class schedule.

  • Register for Classes

    See the class schedule to review your options. Register for the class or classes you wish to take by logging into Basecamp, clicking on the menu and selecting I Want To... > Register for Credit Classes.

  • Attend a New Student Orientation

    Check with the campus you plan to attend to see if they offer a new student orientation. It is a great way to get off to a great start on your educational journey.
