As a high school student, planning ahead for college is important! It is a simple process to take college level courses from the University of Northern Colorado.
You must show that you meet the criteria established by your high school and receive approval from your high school counselor and/or instructor prior to participating in the UNC Dual Enrollment program. Work with your high school counselor and/or instructor on your eligibility for the courses available at your school.
On the dual enrollment page for your high school, you will see PDF links for:
You will need to complete both the participation agreement and registration forms for each course you wish to take, and deliver them to the course instructor (at your high school) for submission to UNC. We recommend that you keep a copy of these forms for reference.
The college credit opportunities through UNC Dual Enrollment are provided at a highly reduced tuition rate!
As a dual enrollment student at the University of Northern Colorado, you and your family will be responsible for your tuition. Once you register for classes, you incur a financial commitment to UNC and if you decide not to continue your dual enrollment, you must take action to drop your classes in accordance with the UNC drop/add policies to avoid being responsible for a portion of your tuition and fees. Please note that if you seek to add, drop or withdraw from the college course, you must meet with your high school counselor and/or instructor and complete all required paperwork through UNC's Registrar's Office prior to the add, drop or withdrawal deadlines for your school. See the section below for drop and withdrawal instructions.
You will receive a confirmation letter of your course registration(s) via postal mail. Please keep this for your records. If you do not receive a confirmation letter within 10 business days, please contact us as this could mean we did not receive your registration.
Note: Drop and withdrawal dates for the courses at your school can be found on your dual enrollment page for your high school.
Please use the Dual Enrollment Drop & Withdrawal Form.
"The dual credits get students on a path of more college preparedness and shows them that they can do it. I feel like we’re doing a good job of that."
