The University of Northern Colorado's Extended Campus makes it possible for you to pursue your career goals through outstanding coursework in highly regarded programs, mentored by faculty who have professional field experience.

UNC tailors coursework to fit your unique needs as an adult learner. Most UNC Extended Campus courses and programs are delivered by the same faculty who teach on-campus. These are experts who keep up-to-date with—and create!—the latest advances in their fields. For certain programs, adjunct faculty may be included to add unique field experience and perspective. UNC faculty who take part in off-campus and online instruction are among our most enthusiastic instructors. They are excited about the opportunity to reach learners who otherwise wouldn't make it to campus or be able to attend a traditionally-scheduled offering.

UNC's rigorous coursework is founded on integrity and caring. You'll meet your professional goals, experience engaging coursework and find that rich learning opportunities take place both face-to-face and from a distance.

  • The University of Northern Colorado, founded in 1889, has been offering quality distance education since 1902.
