STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- The Colorado Mountain College system has graduated its first class of bachelor's degree candidates.
Three years ago, former Gov. Bill Ritter signed a bill allowing Colorado Mountain College to offer a limited number of bachelor's degrees after the college said there was a lack of institutions offering four-year degrees in north-central Colorado.
In 2011, the college started offering bachelor's degrees in business administration and sustainability studies. Over the weekend, bachelor's degrees were awarded to dozens of students who earned them after transferring in with previous college credits or associate degrees.
Colorado Mountain College has 11 locations.
