This is an Extended Campus program, which means:
Program tuition for the 2017-18 academic year (which runs Fall, Spring, and Summer terms) is $555 per credit hour. Tuition for the 2018-19 academic year will be determined June 2018.
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 2018-19 school year is released on Oct. 1, 2017, and is based off of 2016 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.

“The Sport's Coaching, M.A. program at the UNC provided me with 21st Century skills that not only make me a better coach but a better teacher.
The coursework challenged traditional notions about coaching, and reinvigorated my appreciation of the power that coaches have on the overall development of the whole athlete. Each course within the program presented material and knowledge that I can directly apply to my athletes.
Plain and simple, the program transformed my coaching from average to excellent because I have skills, knowledge, and purpose behind my instruction.”
