In light of Campus closure and as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19, employees in Human Resources are working remotely in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Visit our COVID-19 HR Guidance page for more information.

Benefits for UNC Employees

The University provides a wide range of benefits for its employees.  Although many of these benefits are shared by all employee classes, some are determined by the employee's position classification (i.e. Faculty, Professional Administrator, or State Classified staff) and full or part-time status.

Medical, Leave and Retirement: Look under Classified, Faculty or Professional Administrative Staff for further details on medical, leave, and retirement benefits.

Recognition Awards

The University understands the importance of outstanding contributions to the campus community. Several recognition awards for all employee classes are given throughout the year from the State of Colorado, the university, or professional organizations representing the employees.

Tuition Grants for Employees and Dependents

Dependents and Spouses of UNC Employees who are employed as .5 FTE or above eligible for Dependent Tuition Grants. Dependent Tuition Grants will cover a portion of in-state tuition charges as long as Satisfactory Academic Progress is being made. Undergraduate students must register for the College Opportunity Fund and FAFSA to receive the grant.  For further details on requirements or forms for the grants, contact Human Resources at human.resources@unco.edu.
