The Colorado Mountain Promise

Colorado Mountain College believes every Coloradan deserves the opportunity to go to college. With the Colorado Mountain Promise, we will cover tuition for any Colorado residents whose family income is below $70,000. If you’re an independent student (typically over 24 years of age) we’ll cover your tuition if your household income is $50,000 or less.
