In June 1995 the College moved from its original location in Fort Collins, Colorado to a larger campus in the city at 3842 South Mason Street and began broadening their program areas. In 2005, IBMC expanded the college by opening a branch campus in Cheyenne, Wyoming and later re-locating to a larger facility in the heart of the city at 1854 Dell Range Boulevard. This was followed by more expansion in February 2008, when a second branch campus was instituted in Greeley, Colorado and later moved to a larger facility in Greeley in 2013. A fourth campus debuted in September 2010 in Longmont, CO. Within a year of opening this newest campus, it was necessary to double the size of the campus to meeting growing career training needs in the region.
