Adams State is not just a university, it’s a community. Visitors are impressed with how our faculty, staff, and the surrounding community all support our students.

Adams State faculty are genuinely committed to their students and take pride in exceptional teaching and learning. They get to know students on a first-name basis, and are available for out of class tutoring, mentoring, and advice. Students are encouraged to become involved in the community and given the latitude to discover their strengths. Supportive programs and a caring campus culture further contribute to student success.

Our average class size is 18 students, and nearly all of the classes are taught by full-time faculty with the highest degree in their discipline. At the same time, we have the most affordable resident tuition in Colorado. Our admissions and financial aid offices aim to give students the maximum aid possible.

Adams State University is the home for any student seeking small class size, instruction by professors whose only job is to teach, to be able to know your professors outside of class, and to gain all the advantages of a four-year university education in a comfortable, small town environment.
