CMC tuition stays steady despite state budget cuts

SUMMIT COUNTY – Despite recently losing $800,000 in state funding, Colorado Mountain College won’t raise its tuition for the coming year, school officials said.

With local and state cutbacks affecting public education budgets from elementary levels to universities, a number of public universities and colleges in Colorado are raising their tuition, according to a CMC press release. Tuition at the University of Colorado in Boulder will rise by 15 percent, while tuition at its Denver and Colorado Springs campuses, Colorado State University and the University of Northern Colorado will rise up to 9 percent. Tuition at other schools around the state is expected to increase up to 6 percent.

In addition to the $800,000 loss in state support, CMC also suffered a 7 percent cut in its state student financial aid. That cut likely will remain invisible to CMC students, however, as the CMC Foundation has pledged to make up the loss through fundraising, officials said.
