Welcome to Veterans Services

The University of Northern Colorado proudly supports the military affiliated community by assisting in the transition process and providing a stand alone space with a strong inclusive community. The acceptance of military credit and VA education benefits, awareness events, and the unlimited contributions and uncapped opportunities for the Yellow Ribbon program are just a few reasons why students choose UNC.

Announcements and Events.

  • WELCOME BACK: Veterans Services will be hosting an Open House on Friday, January 19th from 11:00-1:00pm. Stop by and enjoy some BBQ as well as represent your branch of service by participating in some sweet competitions!
  • CERTIFICATION: Remember to certify your SPRING classes through URSA in order to decrease the delay in receiving your education benefits.
  • UPDATE: The VA has requested that UNC suspend admitting VA Education Benefit students into the Foreign Language (K-12 French Teaching) program.
  • Would you like to donate to the Veteran Scholarship Fund to help veterans finish strong? Please give today!
  • Make sure that you fill out your FAFSA to see if you are eligible to receive federal financial aid. Most scholarships and grants do not affect your GI Bill, so apply today.
