COVID-19: News and campus updates | University policies and resources

Coronavirus icon       Coronavirus  Return to Campus  COVID-19 Digest
When visiting the Office of Financial Aid, wear a mask and follow all signs and posted placards to keep the UNC community healthy.

All financial aid funds are applied to the student bill beginning the first week of school each semester provided the student and/or parent has completed all tasks for the aid to pay. Please review your Ursa account to make sure you have accepted your aid and completed any loan lender tasks required. 

All financial aid refunds will be provided by a mailed check or a direct deposit. Students will not be able to pick up refund checks at Bear Central in efforts to comply with UNC’s social distancing, health and safety measures.  

Maintaining Your Aid

warningNOTE: Summer 2020 deadline for appeals is July 1, 2020. Late appeals will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

 

Federal regulations require that the University of Northern Colorado establish a policy to monitor the academic progress of students who apply for and/or receive federal, state and institutional aid. Students must be making satisfactory academic progress toward their academic degree program in order to maintain their eligibility for financial aid.

Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress

The Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and the associated policies may have changed for the next academic year. All students need to read this material carefully, and direct any questions to the Office of Financial Aid at 970-351-4862.

Please note: Academic Suspension appeals policy expectations differ from the Financial Aid Ineligibility Appeal Policy and have a separate application process. View instructions for academic appeal through SOAR.

Ineligible for Aid

If Ineligible for Aid, you’re no longer eligible to receive financial assistance under any state or federal financial aid programs administered by or through the University of Northern Colorado. Being Ineligible for Aid does not prohibit your enrollment at UNC, but you will be responsible for all charges incurred. Being Ineligible for Aid remains in effect unless removed by the Appeals Committee (See Financial Aid Appeals in the SAP standards document). If you are academically suspended and then are readmitted to the university, you must still appeal your financial aid suspension. If timing issues cause financial assistance to be received and you were not eligible for it, repayment of that aid is required immediately upon notification. The entire financial aid Refund/Repayment Policy may be obtained upon request from the Office of Financial Aid.
