Trinidad State Junior College

600 Prospect Street, Trinidad, CO 81082, USA



Monday - Friday

Established in 1925, Trinidad State Junior College was the first community college in Colorado. With campuses in Trinidad and Alamosa, Colorado, we provide an 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.

We offer the full college experience in a small town setting including dining and residence halls and we feature thirteen intercollegiate sports teams. Welcome to Trojan Territory! Our spacious 17-acre Trinidad Campus is also home to the Louden-Henritze Archaeology Museum.

Our second campus, in Alamosa, Colorado also offers a considerable selection of courses including Nursing, Welding, Auto and Diesel Mechanics and Law Enforcement Training. On either campus we can prepare a student for a continued education at a four-year school.

Trinidad State has been continually accredited by the Higher Learning Commission since 1962.
