Colorado Mountain College Reviews
I attended CMC in Steamboat springs. There were many positives about being in school in a mountain town but also some negatives.I really enjoyed the teachers and faculty in general. Teachers were very hands on and understanding, possibly some of the best instructors I have ever had. There are often problems involved with registration such as being enrolled for classes that were not applied to, not being dropped from classes that were intended to be dropped or passing classes that were never enrolled in or attended. The dorms were very nice but when it came to check out security deposit returns would often be withheld because damages were found to the room after it had been signed off as being in fine condition by a RA. Overall it is clear that the staff do really care about students and do all they can to make the experience the best possible for students and living and going to school in a mountain town is really a incredible experience!
CMC is a fantastic school for those who arent sure of they want to commit to a 4-year university, it shows what to expect from college-level work and how to adjust from highschool. Not to mention that the tuition is extremely cheap and they make it easy for nearly anyone to afford classes!
CMCs online learning platform is super easy to use. It allows students to take school at their own pace, which is especially useful when they're participating in other activities, such as working while in school, playing sports, participating in volunteer work, ect. From my experience, most of the instructors lay out their instructions well, and respond very quickly to any questions or concerns, especially about grades.
