New Website Becomes Hub for Growing UNC Online Offerings

UNC Online, a new website offered through the University of Northern Colorado Office of Extended Studies, will serve as the new portal to online education.

The site, unconline.edu, consolidates in a central location information on UNC's online courses and programs and provides resources for current and future students. An audio and visual online course demonstration provides an overview of how the courses work.

This fall, in line with national trends, more than 20 percent of UNC undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in one of 235 online courses offered at UNC. In addition to its Greeley campus, UNC offers programs online and at its three established centers at Centerra in Loveland, Lowry in Denver and in Colorado Springs — along with other revolving sites around Colorado.

There are multiple undergraduate and graduate online programs combined. Within the past year, five graduate programs have been added and more online programs are planned to be offered by summer. Some programs are entirely online and some require occasional workshop or labs on campus.

"UNC continues to focus on increasing access to education for adult learners who otherwise would not be able to fulfill their educational goals," said Patricia Book, assistant vice president of Continuing Education and Academic Outreach. "UNC Online exemplifies our commitment to making college education convenient through flexible and accelerated formats to meet the needs of working adults."
