You are responsible for:

  • Meeting your college costs. In addition, if you are a dependent student, your parents share this responsibility. Financial aid may be available when your resources are not sufficient to meet those costs.
  • Supplying accurate information on all forms submitted. Funds obtained on the basis of false or misleading information must be repaid, and could result in criminal prosecution, prison sentence and/or a $10,000 fine pursuant to US Criminal Code and Colorado Criminal Code.
  • Reporting any assistance received from sources outside our office.
  • Completing all requested documentation by the required date(s).
    • Deadline for completing the verification process:
      If selected, the deadline for an otherwise eligible student to complete the verification process for all federal aid programs is the date established annually in the Federal Register or 120 days after the last day of the student's enrollment, whichever is earlier.

  • Responding to all requests from the Office of Financial Aid in a timely manner.
  • Reporting any change in your circumstances that might affect your eligibility for financial aid. These changes include residency, enrollment status (withdrawing from a class or from school), class standing, increase or decrease of financial resources and marital status.
  • Using financial aid funds for expenses related to your attendance at the University of Northern Colorado.
  • Repaying all types of loan assistance. You must inform lenders of any changes in your name, address or enrollment status while you are attending school or after you leave or graduate.
  • Being aware of all conditions that relate to the receipt of your financial aid.
  • Meeting the Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress.
