Colorado Mountain College clears first hurdle toward four-year status

A bill that would let Colorado Mountain College offer a limited number of bachelor’s degrees passed its first legislative test Wednesday.

The state Senate Education Committee voted 7-1 in favor of the measure.

The bill heads next to the full Senate. It has yet to be considered in the House of Representatives.

CMC is a two-year college with 11 locations. It’s spread across an area the size of Maryland and that isn’t served by a four-year college.

“If we can continue to successfully work through this legislative process, the end result would be that we could meet more of the unmet needs within our mountain communities,” CMC President Stan Jensen said in a news release.
