CMC signs tuition reciprocity agreement

Staff Report

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Colorado Mountain College (CMC) recently signed a tuition reciprocity agreement with the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education to offer discounted tuition rates to out-of-state students who qualify for the deal.

According to a statement from CMC, the junior college district is joining 22 other two-year and four-year public colleges and universities in the state who already have signed on to the Western Undergraduate Exchange agreement.

According to the statement, eligible new CMC students from designated WUE states can get a discount of up to 52 percent from the traditional out-of-state tuition rate. For a student taking 30 credit hours in a year, that represents approximately a $4,200 annual discount.

Residents of 15 Western states and U.S. Pacific territories are eligible to apply for WUE tuition discounts. Current and former CMC students, or students who have previously taken a CMC class, will not be eligible, according to CMC.

Students interested in learning more about the program can check the school’s website, or call the school’s central admissions office at 800-621-8559 or 970-945-8691.
