Congratulations on your acceptance into the University of Northern Colorado!  As a first-generation college student, you are now pursuing an opportunity that will forever change the path towards your future.  By choosing this path, you will take on the unique responsibility of being the first in your family to earn a bachelor’s degree and we at UNC could not be more excited.
