    Established in 1925, Trinidad State Junior College was the first community college in Colorado. With campuses in Trinidad and Alamosa, 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, Welding, Nursing and Holistic Health/Massage Therapy. We offer Nursing, Art, Theatre, Auto Mechanics 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 also home to the first, and by most accounts, the premier Gunsmithing program in the United States.

    We offer the full college experience in a small town setting including dining and residence halls. Our spacious 17-acre Trinidad Campus is also home to the Louden-Henritze Archaeology Museum.  Trinidad State has been continually accredited by the Higher Learning Commission since 1962.

    We are home to the only NRA Certified Training Center in the United States and we offer a series of mostly week-long gunsmithing classes each summer.  In addition we have a growing community education program offering not-for-college-credit classes supporting business related skills.  Plus our Southern Rockies Heritage School aims to preserve Old West skills before they’re lost to time.  Classes like Leather Holster Making, Hat Making, Beekeeping, Scrimshaw, Metal Engraving and Bladesmithing are offered each year.

    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 feature eleven sports teams:

        Basketball (Men and Women)
        Cross Country (Men and Women)
        Indoor/Outdoor Track & Field (Men and Women)
        Soccer (Men and Women)
