The city of Greeley, where UNC was founded, makes its home just an hour's drive north of Denver on the sprawling high plains close to the foothills of the spectacular snow-capped Rocky Mountains. The Greeley metro area has a population of nearly 100,000. Its pace is comfortable, its personality eclectic, its population diverse. Located in the heart of Weld County - one of the fastest-growing areas in Colorado - Greeley provides access to an abundance of housing choices, job opportunities and cultural, recreational and entertainment amenities. http://www.unco.edu/uncmap/.
Outside Greeley, UNC has three established centers where students can receive offerings on site. These centers are located in Loveland, Denver and Colorado Springs, and are intended to provide quality lifelong learning opportunities for students, professionals, and nontraditional learners.
UNC has been offering quality distance education since 1902. UNC was one of the early adopters of the online education model, beginning with the first online degree in 1965. UNC online courses and degrees are based on the same commitment to quality and expertise provided on campus. The credits and degrees earned through UNC online are the same, and carry the same academic recognition, as those for on-campus students. Visit http://www.unco.edu/uncmap/
