Step 2: College Level Placement

Many of CMC classes require students be prepared for Reading, English, and Mathematics. CMC uses "multiple measures" to determine placement including, but not limited to, college transcripts, ACT/SAT scores, and Accuplacer scores.

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

ACT or SAT scores and Accuplacer Placement Test

Upload your ACT/SAT scores along with your CMC application.

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

If you have not taken College Classes or the ACT/SAT, the Accuplacer is an option.

  • The Accuplacer is a free test.
