Step 2: College Level Placement

Many of CMC classes require students be prepared for Reading, English, and Mathematics. CMC can use a combination of College Transcripts, ACT/SAT scores, and Accuplacer scores to determine this.

Option 1: College Transcripts

The college/university you attended must send your official transcripts directly to CMC’s Registrar’s Office for evaluation.

  • Send to:

Colorado Mountain College Registrar’s Office
802 Grand Ave
Glenwood Springs, CO 81601

Option 2: ACT or SAT scores and Accuplacer Placement Test

Send your ACT/SAT scores to an Advisor to determine if you meet College Level for English, Reading, and Mathematics.

  • Scores must be within the last five (5) years to be considered

If you have not taken College Classes or the ACT/SAT, then take the Accuplacer

  • The Accuplacer is a free test
  • The Accuplacer is offered just about every week between the Breckenridge and Dillon campus

Contact an Advisor to sign up.
