It’s been more than 30 years since Colorado Mountain College expanded its district to include a new community. In November of 2019 voters overwhelmingly chose to annex Salida and Poncha Springs into CMC’s district, creating the newest CMC campus. Now, Salida and Poncha Springs locals who live within district boundaries pay CMC’s low in-district tuition rates.
Salida students can enroll in certificate, associate, and bachelor-level classes for CMC degree programs like EMT Basic, Certified Nurse Aide, Business Administration, Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, and Nursing pre-requisites.
