Colorado Mesa University

Welcome to Colorado Mesa University, the place that's dedicated to helping you make your educational aspirations a reality.

With an established tradition of excellence and an enduring commitment to higher education, Colorado Mesa values teaching, learning and student-faculty interaction. This is reflected in the commitment of our faculty, staff and administrators who, as members of this "teaching" university, are focused on helping students accomplish their academic and career goals. Unlike large, research-oriented institutions, all of our courses are taught by highly qualified faculty members, not graduate assistants, who are able to connect with each of their students and provide a meaningful learning experience. This personal approach to higher education, coupled with very competitive tuition, makes Colorado Mesa University one of the best higher education options in the state and nation.

A college education consists of more than just time spent in the classroom. Recognizing this, Colorado Mesa University has also created an experiential learning environment where students have access to a wide range of social, cultural, recreational and personal development opportunities. With options that include special interest clubs, professional organizations, Associated Student Government, the Cultural Diversity Board, intramural sports and more, there is a niche for each person. Opportunities also abound beyond the borders of our campuses and into the local community and surrounding areas, which are known for their hospitality, amazing landscapes and unmatched recreational opportunities.

At Colorado Mesa University, we recognize that higher education is really about you, the student, and have designed this web site with you in mind. Whether you are new to the college or are one of our current students using MAVzone to access student records or registering for classes from one of the hundreds of computer stations on campus, I hope you find this web site both useful and informative. If you have questions about our University, please call 800.982.6372 or 970.248.1020 and our friendly operator will assist you.

Thank you for visiting the Colorado Mesa University web site. We look forward to assisting you achieve your educational goals.
