Future Undergraduate Students
Did you know that approximately 70% of all UNC students receive some form of financial aid assistance? Understanding the financial aid process is an important step toward fulfilling your educational goals. Take the first step to receiving financial aid by filing your FAFSA. Learn more about all your options and completing your next steps by reviewing the below information.

If you are transferring to the University of Northern Colorado from another college, you should:
- Let your former school know about the transfer as soon as possible so they can cancel any processed aid. Please be aware that aid from one school to another can vary greatly, due to differing costs of attendance, award requirements, etc.
- Request that your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) data be sent to UNC. This may be done by adding the appropriate school code to the FAFSA online (www.fafsa.gov) or by calling 1-800-433-3243. UNC’s school code is 001349.
- Notify donors of any scholarships or grants from outside sources of your transfer so they can send future disbursements to the correct school.
