Transfer Application Checklist
Get started with your Admissions application by completing your Bear App. Budget about 15 minutes to complete it. You can also apply through the Common App. The application requirements are the same no matter which way you apply, so it's up to you how you would prefer to submit your app.
UNC has a $45 application fee (nonrefundable; payable by credit or debit card; fee waivers are available).
Send official college transcripts from all previous institutions attended, as well as an official high school transcript with graduation date (or official GED results).
Transfer Document Submission Options
All documents and credentials must be official and sent one of the following ways:
Office of Admissions
Carter Hall 3006
Campus Box 10
Greeley, CO 80639
Previous institutions may send official transcripts via Parchment or to UNC.firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNC accepts applications on a rolling basis, which means that Admissions will start considering your application as soon as it is complete. The sooner you complete your application and financial aid application, the sooner you’ll hear about your admission decision and financial aid package.
Priority Consideration Deadlines
You’re considered a transfer student if you have attended any post-secondary institution after graduating from high school. To graduate with a bachelor’s degree from UNC, which requires 120 semester credit hours, you must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours through UNC. You’re a strong candidate for admission as a transfer student if you have:
30 or more transferable credits
A cumulative GPA of 2.4 from all schools attended
Bringing Credits to UNC
UNC requires a minimum of 120 semester credit hours to graduate with a bachelor’s degree, with a minimum of 30 credit hours taken at UNC. Your credits will automatically be evaluated after you’re admitted to UNC. The Office of the Registrar determines which credits are transferable and evaluates that coursework based on previously established equivalencies. Courses that do not have established equivalencies will be sent to academic departments responsible for reviewing new courses.
These guides outline how your courses will transfer to UNC:

UNC is proud to support its military community and accepts military credit, VA educational benefits, and the Yellow Ribbon Program.
A maximum of 30 semester hours of credit may be accepted for college-level courses taken under the auspices of the U.S. military services. Credit may also be awarded to veterans of military service who have successfully completed coursework at U.S. military service schools. A Joint Services Transcript (JST), DD214, or official military service school transcript must be submitted. These documents are evaluated by the Office of the Registrar according to recommendations from the American Council on Education in accordance with UNC guidelines. This credit is counted as non-residency transfer work.
The University of Northern Colorado proudly supports the military-affiliated community by assisting in the transition process and providing a stand-alone space with a strong, inclusive community through UNC's Veterans Services.
