Geography Education Graduate Certificate Program (Non-Degree) – Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition

This is an Extended Campus program, which means:

  • A flat per-credit tuition rate for all students (in-state or out-of-state)
  • There are no student fees – they are incorporated into our flat tuition rate
  • Certain courses may carry specific course fees for additional services and materials

Program tuition for the 2017-18 academic year (which runs Fall, Spring, and Summer terms) is $495 per credit hour. Tuition for the 2018-19 academic year will be determined June 2018.

Financial Aid

Certificate program students (non-degree seeking) are not eligible for aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Details about the federal aid program are available at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. Your program coordinator may be aware of your eligibility for any discipline or campus-based aid if available.

For more specific help, Extended Campus degree-seeking students may contact Adrina Pawlak in Financial Aid at OFA.Extended@unco.edu, 970-351-2502, or via the UNC Financial Aid website.

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.

What Students Say

“I was able to work full time as well as attend the online classes. The courses pertained exactly to what I was teaching at the time, so I was able to apply what I was learning in my own classroom. The credits I earned in the program will also allow me to apply for teaching jobs in a community college.
Finally, the summer field experience was very enticing. It gave us a chance to actually ‘do’ geography.”
