Brooke - 09/02/2020

I think it is an excellent option for the majority of generals and lower level classes. The price is right, the class size are much more reasonable-- I actually know everyone's name in ALL of my onsite classes--and the advisors and front desk are super accessible and helpful.

Scott - 09/25/2019

I moved back to Colorado from Minnesota to attend CMC. Their student advisor has helped me plan my future classes as well as guided me in what applications need to be filled out for graduate programs. And the disabilities coordinator as helped my with my ADHD get extra learning materials as well as time with tutors and outside classroom learning apps and programs. The staff and teachers are amazing and I could not be happier that I am back and on the best track to achieving my nursing degree.

Ryan - 02/28/2019

It is a great place to learn. I feel like administrators will take their time to help you. The professors are awesome and make the information make sense. I wish their nursing program is larger and that out of state tuition was more affordable.

We also care for 3 birds, an eagle, some guinea pigs, ferrets, chinchillas, a hedgehog, a bunch or mice and rats, a green iguana, 4 snakes, and bearded dragon.

    Colorado Mountain College is for anyone who wants to take an easier and more affordable start to college. The small class size is perfect for a better student-teacher interaction than the big universities that have classes up to 400 students.
