History of the College

Mt. Sierra College was founded in January of 1990 and continues to serve the ever-growing need for leaders in design and media arts, business and technology. The effective use of technology has always been at the core of its educational mission. During the early days of its existence, the College was known as Computer Technology Institute. Short courses in computer software applications were offered.

In 1992, the College became a Novell Education Academic Partner and was authorized to offer Novell courses. In 1993 the College began its long-standing partnership with Microsoft and was authorized to offer Microsoft certification preparation courses.

The College laid the foundation for its Bachelor of Science degree programs in 1994. Now the cornerstone of its mission, the College’s bachelor’s degree programs undergo continuous review to insure that students are receiving the education they need to succeed. After receiving accreditation in April of 1996, Mt. Sierra College offered its first courses leading to degrees in Telecommunications Technology, Multimedia Design Technology and Computer Information Technology. In the Fall of 2002, Mt. Sierra College launched its first business degree program, Bachelor of Science in eBusiness.
