University of Northern Colorado


With our rich history, dedicated faculty, active students and Division I athletic teams, we're large enough to provide true university opportunities and small enough to treat students as individuals — UNC is a place where you can stand out, not just fit in.

Enrollment Information

Your application to the University of Northern Colorado is your application to receive the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) tuition rate. The WUE tuition classification will be automatically applied by the Office of Admissions based on an applicant’s admission and state of residency.

Note: Students cannot qualify for in-state residency after attending UNC as a WUE student. One would need to decline WUE and pay non-resident tuition for one year before establishing in-state residency.

To apply:

  1. Go to
  2. Create a myUNC profile.
  3. Complete the online application.
  4. Send your official transcripts to UNC. (High school students: Ask your high school to send your official transcript. Transfer students: Send transcripts from any institution you’ve attended.)
  5. Have your official ACT or SAT scores sent to UNC(001349). (Test scores listed on an official transcript are also acceptable. Transfer students: You only need to send scores if you have fewer than 13 college-level credits.)

UNC does not require personal statements or letters of recommendation. You will be contacted by an admission counselor if any additional information is needed.

Transcripts must be sent to UNC directly from your high school. Transfer students: Please have all previously attended institutions submit your transcripts to UNC.

Your school can send transcripts one of three ways:
