Eligibility by State of Residence

Recent changes in federal regulations relating to our ability to deliver online education have uncovered onerous application and fee requirements from a few states. As a result, at this time (effective December 1, 2011), the University of Northern Colorado is unable to accept applications for admission to online courses or programs from students residing in the following states:

  • Arkansas
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Minnesota
  • North Carolina
  • Ohio
  • Tennessee 

If you reside in one of these states, and would like us to inform you at such time as the University of Northern Colorado is able to accept your application for online courses or programs, please email kristy.kline@unco.edu. Please include your state of residence and your program of interest in your email.
