One-fifth of the total payment plan is due on the 20th of each month during the fall and spring semesters. One-third of the total payment plan is due on the 1st of each month during the summer semester. Payment plans are not offered for the Interim Session.

Due dates are displayed on the monthly e-Bill statement.

Please be sure to check your e-bill statement or visit our Bursar's calendar.
A service charge of 1.5% will be assessed on all unpaid billed charges if not received in the UNC Cashier's Office by the due date.

- College Opportunity Fund (COF)
The College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend is money that the State of Colorado pays towards your tuition bill if you are a resident undergraduate student taking eligible courses.
In order to receive COF, you must first apply for the stipend by completing the on-line Stipend Application or the paper application. When you complete the stipend application, you create an account with 145 available undergraduate hours. You can receive stipend funding for these hours at any participating college in the state of Colorado if you meet the eligibility requirements.
At the time of course registration, you will be prompted to authorize UNC to accept the money on your behalf. If for some reason you are not prompted or you choose to change your authorization, you may do so through your URSA Financial Tab.
Payments received on your account, including financial aid, COF, and personal or third party payments, are first applied to any outstanding balance on your student account. If any payment should create a credit balance on your account, the money will be refunded to you.
If you have direct deposit set up through UNC, it will be deposited directly into your account. If you do not have direct deposit set up, a check will be issued and it will be available for pickup at the Bursar's Office, Carter Hall, first floor. If you have questions regarding your refund or if you see a credit balance on your account that has not been refunded, please call 970-351-2201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any charges that are applied to your student account after the refund, will be billed to you during the normal billing cycle.
