International Students

Though international students can attend many UNC Extended Campus programs, this delivery of this program is not well-suited for international students due to U.S. immigration requirements concerning the ratio of credit hours that international students must take in the classroom setting compared to how many credits are taken in online courses (immigration counts partially online courses as online).

Transferring Credit

Applicable graduate credit with a grade of A or B from an accredited university may be able to be applied towards this academic program. Master's and post-master's specialist degree students must complete a minimum of 24 credits at the University of Northern Colorado. All work counted in a degree program must be within five years for a master's degree and six years for a specialist degree. The time limit is calculated from the beginning of the first class transferred in and counted in the degree program. Students must submit an original transcript to their advisor for review. Student and advisor then complete a Transfer of Credit form to submit along with the original transcript to the Grad School for review and final approval.
