COVID-19: News and Campus Updates | Fall 2021 Plans

Coronavirus icon       Coronavirus  Spring Operations  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.  

Student Budgets

For the purposes of determining financial aid, our office follows the Colorado Department of Higher Education and federal guidelines to develop an estimated, average Cost of Attendance (budget) for different student classifications.

Budgets include estimated figures for tuition and mandatory fees and estimated averages for room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal (miscellaneous) expenses. These are estimated averages; your costs may vary.

The tuition costs for undergraduate Colorado residents budget figures include only student share of tuition. Be sure to apply for the College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend, or you will pay more for tuition.
