Using the Ursa Portal


Ursa is the University of Northern Colorado's online single point of access to find information and resources for students, faculty and staff.

  • Students use Ursa to manage registration, view grades, order transcripts, view and pay student bills, receive notifications and messages about financial aid, complete student forms and more.

  • Faculty members use Ursa’s Faculty Tab and Faculty Dashboard to review class rosters, enter grades, edit syllabi and office hour information, email students enrolled in their courses, and perform degree evaluations for advising, which supplements other available faculty, advising, and employee benefits tools.
  • Staff uses Ursa to conduct administrative and financial business of the university, and as a tool for business regarding employee benefits and information.
