Welcome Transfer Students!

The College of Education and Behavioral Sciences is a great place to pursue a degree and the University of Northern Colorado campuses, both on-campus and online, have many resources to help you feel welcome and supported as a transfer student.

As a student who is transferring to the University of Northern Colorado, please visit the following website to learn more about submitting an application to become a student at UNC. 

Orientation

Online Orientation is required for all transfer and non-traditional students. Completing the orientation will give students practical resources to get started and will help with a successful transition to campus.

You will receive an email in your BearMail account from orientation@unco.edu with a link to access the online orientation within a week of being admitted to UNC. All incoming transfer students are required to complete orientation. All students are encouraged to attend the in-person Transfer and Non-traditional Welcome. To learn more, please register here.
