Your Account

  • Statement of Financial Responsibility

    The Statement of Financial Responsibility is an agreement between the University of Northern Colorado and you, covering your student account with us. You, by or allowing charges to be applied to your student account, will be bound by this agreement.

  • Holds

    At the time of registration, if your account is past due $200 or more, a hold will be placed on your account and you will not be allowed to register. In addition, if your account is not paid in full, a hold will be placed on other University services such as transcripts and/or diplomas. 

    Please contact the Bursar's Office at 970-351-4UNC (option 3) or bursar@unco.edu.

  • Direct deposit, wire transfer

    You may elect to have direct deposit set up for payroll deposits or student account refunds. Once you have completed the Direct Deposit Authorization Form, please return it to the Payroll Office, in Carter Hall, Room 2005 or mail to UNC Payroll Office, Campus Box 5, Greeley, CO 80639.

    UNC does accept wire transfers. Please contact us at 970-351-4UNC (option 3) or email bursar@unco.edu for routing information. 

    Per the Department of Education Regulations, all Universities are required to post copies of any contractual relationships with financial institutions that provide services to students. Per these regulations, the following links will provide a copy of the current contract between Wells Fargo Bank and the University of Northern Colorado, account disclosure information, and contractual history.


  • Health insurance

    If you are an undergraduate student taking 9 or more credit hours or a degree-seeking graduate student taking 6 or more credit hours, you are required to have full coverage health insurance. You will automatically be charged for the UNC Student Health Insurance Plan and the cost will be added to your UNC student bill.

    You have the option to waive out of the plan by completing the online insurance waiver showing proof of comparable coverage prior to the deadline, which is always the 10th day of classes each semester. Non-payment of the insurance DOES NOT waive the insurance; you must complete the waiver process.

    To complete the waiver or obtain more information, please visit the Student Health Insurance Program website or contact their office at 970-351-1915.

  • Third party billing

    Third party billing is when an entity pays educational expenses on behalf of a non-related student when billed by the University.

    Third party billing done by the Bursar's Office includes, but is not limited to:

    • Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
    • ROTC
    • National Guard
    • Military Tuition Assistance
    • Department of Veterans Affairs Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31)
    • Foreign governments or universities

    A letter of authorization is required to be sent to the University each semester. The authorization should state the name of the student, name of the sponsor, the dollar amount the sponsor will pay and what expenses the sponsor will pay (tuition, housing, dining, fees, etc). The authorization may be faxed to 970-351-1078, emailed to bursar@unco.edu or mailed to UNC Bursar, Campus Box 14, Greeley, CO 80639.

    Invoices are sent to sponsors after the University census date for fall and spring semesters and after July 1st for the summer semester.
