How To Register, Drop and Withdraw For UNC Dual Enrollment Courses

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.

Registering for Your Courses

Four Easy Steps

1. Meet With Your High School Counselor and/or Instructor

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.

2. Complete Your Paperwork

On the dual enrollment page for your high school, you will see PDF links for:

  • Dual Enrollment Participation Agreement
  • Term-based registration forms [You will use the drop down menus on the form to choose the appropriate instructor and course/section number (e.g. College Algebra MATH 124-000).]

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.

3. Know Your Financial Commitment

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.

4. Confirm Your Enrollment

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.

Dropping or Withdrawing from a Course

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.

  • You can drop your course up until the designated Drop Deadline. The course will be removed from your transcript and you will receive a full tuition refund.
  • After the Drop Deadline and up until the Withdrawal Deadline you can withdraw from your course. The course will remain on your transcript with a grade of “W” (this does not impact your GPA), and there is no tuition refund.
  • After the withdrawal deadline you are unable to be removed from the course. The course will remain on your transcript with the grade that you have earned, and there is no tuition refund.
  • If you stop attending the course but fail to officially withdraw from the course(s), you will be responsible for full tuition and fees and the course grade will remain on your transcript.

Building Confidence and Opportunities

"Among the many Eaton High School dual enrollment success stories, I am particularly proud of one of our first-generation female students. She has taken six credits each semester and is now a confident college student because of the exposure and opportunities provided by UNC's Dual Enrollment Program."

– Marcy Sanger, Eaton High School Counselor
