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.
