This spring, Colorado Mountain College’s Roaring Fork campus is offering more than 500 classes. Registration is now underway, and many classes begin Jan. 15. Others start at various times throughout the semester.

As a great money-saving alternative, CMC continues to offer core curriculum classes for those working toward a bachelor’s degree. Complete the first two years of general education requirements at CMC at a great cost savings before transferring to a four-year school to complete the last two years of the bachelor’s degree. You can also earn a certificate or associate degree at CMC in a wide range of fields.

Students who have taken classes at CMC within the past 10 months can sign up by mail, phone, fax, or online at New students and those who have not taken classes within the past 10 months need to register in person at one of the college’s sites.
