Apply to the University of Northern Colorado

Thank you for your interest in becoming a UNC Bear! The Bear App is open to undergraduate, graduate, international and Intensive English students seeking admission for spring, summer and fall 2019. 

Apply to UNC through the Common App

If you're applying to multiple schools as an undergraduate student, you may prefer to apply to UNC through the Common App instead of the Bear App (but we accept both and the requirements are the same). DREAMer (undocumented or DACA recipient students) should use the Bear App.
