This is an Extended Campus program, which means:
Program tuition for the 2018-19 academic year (which runs Fall, Spring, and Summer terms) is $520 per credit hour. Tuition for the 2019-20 academic year will be determined mid-June 2019.
Students who cannot pay for tuition alone are encouraged to apply for federal financial aid. Students must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA priority filing date for each academic year (a Fall-Spring-Summer cycle which begins each August) is March 1, although the form is now available by October 1 of the previous year and requests tax information from the year prior. For example, the FAFSA form for aid for the 2019-20 school year is released on Oct. 1, 2018, and is based off of 2017 tax return information.
Late submissions of the FAFSA are still accepted throughout the school year but you may not be considered for the maximum amount of aid. If the March priority deadline has passed for the upcoming/current school year, we encourage you to apply for FAFSA consideration as soon as you enroll for your first courses. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to submit an application for the current academic year and an early/priority application for the following academic year.
Master's and Educational Specialist degree students require a minimum of 5 credits per academic term for financial aid eligibility. Full time enrollment is based on 9 credits.
Fill out the FAFSA form at https://fafsa.ed.gov/
Students can also find helpful information such as the Guide to Federal Student Aid at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/resources. Most of the resources are available in English, Spanish, and Braille.
The University of Northern Colorado offers a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) to all degree-seeking students who enroll in courses on our main UNC Campus, an Extended Campus Center, or Online.
Degree-seeking graduate students enrolled in 6 or more credit hours will automatically receive this benefit each term. SHIP premiums will appear on your semester bill. If you have comparable insurance coverage, and do not want to be charged for SHIP coverage, you must opt out of this plan each Fall via an online waiver process.
Please visit the UNC Student Health Insurance pages for more information about the insurance plan.
“A major reason I’m teaching now is because of the energy, expertise and letters of support from my professors and fellow cohort members. Without them, I’d have been ill equipped, and now I’m back doing what is truly in my nature to do.
– Dennis Trowbridge, Theatre and Speech Teacher
“I use what I learned in UNC’s TEI program almost every day. The knowledge I gained has given me many tools and ideas to use in my classroom.”
– Jim Kaiser, Theatre Arts Teacher
