Front Range Community College focuses on the success of more than 29,000 students annually in credit classes and more than 5,000 people in business training and continuing education.

FRCC also has special transfer agreements with Colorado School of Mines and Regis University, as well as other institutions. Our students transfer all over, including successful transfers to universities such as Cornell and Duke.
