Colorado Mountain College Reviews
Smaller classes provide the opportunity for students to interact and communicate with professors and receive more hands-on educational experiences. The new Learning Materials Program is fantastic! This program allows students to receive their course texts and materials through a library-like lending system that ships books to the students at an affordable cost per credit. This college is very supportive of the environment and sustainability studies as well as the arts. All campus locations are settled within beautiful Colorado areas and the tuition is incredible!
CMC is an integrated part of the community that grants opportunity to both the local populous and those who wish to begin their educational journey from places around the world. Though there are many other colleges that are centered in impressive metropolitan areas with access to the newest and greatest technologies and resources, CMC makes use of higher education networks and helps provide hands on opportunities to create a solid basis in all of the programs they offer. The mixture of traditional lessons with practical experience creates a much more valuable and realistic transition to the professional world.
Nice small campus with the potential for more direct student-professor interaction, however that's not always followed through. Many great opportunities, but you have to work hard and be incredibly persistent to get them. Many programs are simply too small to keep up with the demand but once you're in they are wonderful learning opportunities. The 100% acceptance rate is a blessing and a curse, meaning you don't have to worry about getting in but many people get in who should not be there and potentially create an uncomfortable or unsafe environment for other students. The average price of attendance is somewhere around 18,000 - 20,000, if you plan on living on campus and having a normal meal plan. A good deal of construction has been happening these last two years and it can interfere with studying and sleeping depending on you room proximity. The student body is very close to each other which can be great for activities but it can be hard to get privacy at times.
