Established in 1925, Trinidad State Junior College was the first community college in Colorado. With campuses in Trinidad and Alamosa, Colorado, we provide affordable and accessible education to students in southern Colorado and beyond. Trinidad State offers unique academic programs in fields such as Aquaculture, Cosmetology, Nursing, and Welding. We also have an Electrical Line Technician program as well as Art, Theatre, and Machining in addition to traditional arts and Sciences classes and a guaranteed transfer program through a partnership with four-year colleges and universities in Colorado. We are home to one of the first, and by most accounts, the premier Gunsmithing School in the United States.
Our tuition rates are consistently at least 40 percent less than Colorado’s four-year colleges and universities. We also have the highest completion rates of any community college in Colorado.
