Affordable college. It’s a thing.

If you’re like most students or parents, you worry about the burden of student loan debt. Colorado Mountain College’s commitment to affordable, high-quality education helps you graduate with less debt.

Our bachelor’s degree tuition is one of the lowest in the country and the lowest in Colorado. That means you’ll take on an average of $8,000 less in student loans – among the lowest student debt burdens in Colorado. And that means when you graduate, you won’t be crushed by debt just as you’re starting your career.

Graduate Success

Dallas Capozza Engineering / 2018

Capozza studied Physics and switching to Engineering at CMC then finished her bachelor degree. CMC professors "had my back and pushed me to my success", Capozza said.

Those first two years at CMC delivered quality education and student skills. And saved substantial money compared to other schools. "Colorado Mountain College was the most involved school I have ever attended, which made it my absolute favorite."
