Eligibility by State

UNC has secured approval from every other state, as required by new federal regulations. However we are unable to accept applications at this time for our online programs from students residing in the states listed above. More information.

International Students

International students residing outside of the United States are eligible to apply to our online programs. Applicants for online programs must demonstrate English proficiency in order to be considered. Possible ways to demonstrate proficiency:

  • Qualifying test scores: TOEFL: 80, IELTS: 7.0, PTE-A: 54
  • Completion of a degree in the U.S., or from an English speaking country (parts of Europe, Canada), within the last two years.

For this program, you do not need to submit financial documentation with your initial application. You will need to submit financial documentation about 6-8 weeks in advance each time before you plan to come to the U.S. for your coursework. The financial documentation needs to demonstrate that you can cover the cost of tuition and living expenses for the time period that you will be in the U.S. This is so that we can issue a DS-2019 for you to be able to apply for a J1 visa.

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 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.
