Students who cannot pay for tuition alone are encouraged to apply for federal financial aid. Students must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA priority filing date for each academic year (which begins each August) is March 1. Late submissions of the FAFSA are still accepted but may not be considered for the maximum amount of aid. For more information please click here.
Please note that COF does not apply for this degree.
Bachelor’s students require enrollment in a minimum of 6 credits per academic term for financial aid eligibility. Full time enrollment is based on 12 credits.
To apply for federal financial aid assistance
Fill out the FAFSA form at www.fafsa.ed.gov/

LAC/Elective Space Available course approval for Distance Programs
through Extended Campus
Extended Campus online degree completion programs offer the required program courses but do not guarantee LAC or elective course availability. Students, who wish to take UNC courses not offered through their Extended Campus program , must register for the on-campus section of the course to hold a place in the course and then immediately contact their Program Coordinator. The Program Coordinator will work with E C Coordinator.
When Extended Campus receives such a request from the Program Coordinator and student, the Extended Campus Coordinator will seek space available approval of the Dean and the Instructor of the course that is offered through the on campus offerings.
Once approval is given the EC program coordinator will set up a section to be merged with the original section. The Extended Campus section will be set with the Extended Campus degree program tuition rate. By setting up two sections and merging them, the student will not pay different tuition rates for courses and the classes will be merged in Blackboard. We are not able to go over the capacity for the class or override prerequisite errors; only the instructor is able to override either of these.
Students must contact their Program Advisor and approval must be given before the course Add deadline, if approval is not given or the student contacts the Program Advisor after the Add deadline for the course, the student is responsible for either dropping the course before the Drop deadline or paying the Out-of-State tuition rate. Add/Drop deadlines can be found at http://www.unco.edu/regrec/Semestercalendar.html . The Extended Campus Degree program tuition rate for space available seats in class is not a guarantee.
