Short- & Long-Term Goals

You have ideas about where you want to go—for college and in your life. Turn those ideas into clear, workable plans at Copper Mountain College.

Starting here, you can save money, learn in smaller classes, and complete the first two years of your four-year degree. You can also afford to look around, try a class in a new area, strengthen yourself, test yourself, and set solid short- and long-term goals for your education.

At Copper Mountain, you can pick a transfer degree that aligns clearly with your future university and future major. Or, you can choose a more general transfer degree; most university degrees begin with a “general education” classes.

As you explore possible transfer paths, keep an eye out for degrees that have a “T” at the end. These programs guarantee transfer to a CSU, and some also guarantee transfer to certain UCs.
