  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test Scores that are no more than five years old.  Please allow sufficient lead time when taking the GRE.  The Designated Institution (DI) Code is 0033.

  • Domestic Students: $50 non-refundable application fee

International Applicants
International applicants (non-U.S. citizen/non-U.S. Permanent Resident) please refer to the International Admissions Requirements page for further information about submitting transcripts, English proficiency scores, passport copy and financial documentation.


All application materials must be submitted and received by the application deadline for admission consideration. Applicants who do not submit both applications (CSDCAS and UNC Graduate School) will not be considered for admission.

Initial decisions about admission to the program are typically made by mid-March. A list of alternates is also developed, and alternates may be admitted to the program up until the beginning of Fall semester.

Strong applicants will have a solid background in communication disorders as well as science. Desired science courses include biology, chemistry, and human anatomy and physiology.

Please Note: As all official transcripts were submitted to CSDCAS, they do not need to be resubmitted to the Graduate School. However, if you are admitted to UNC and you were still working on your bachelor's degree at your time of application, during your first semester you will need to submit an official transcript to the Graduate School from the institution you graduated from, showing your degree was conferred. If your final GPA fell below 3.00, you will be given additional academic stipulations to remain enrolled at UNC.

Official transcripts from U.S. institutions should be sent via mail directly from the educational institution in an unopened, sealed envelope or through an electronically secure digital program from the issuing institution.

Mailed transcripts should be sent to:
Graduate School and International Admissions
University of Northern Colorado
Campus Box 135
501 20th Street
Greeley, CO 80639

Electronic transcripts from U.S. institutions should be sent directly from the educational institution to: grad.applicationmaterials@unco.edu.

The Graduate School and International Admissions does not accept email, scanned or PDF transcripts directly from applicants. All official transcripts, submitted as part of the application process, are retained by UNC and not returned to applicants or admitted students.

UNC retains submitted transcripts, from institutions other than UNC, for admitted students for up to five years after graduation or date of last attendance at UNC. Transcripts provided by applicants who were not admitted, denied admissions or did not complete their application are destroyed after one (1) year. The Graduate School will make every attempt to use previously-submitted transcripts if they are within these timeframes. However, if the Graduate School cannot locate previously submitted transcripts, the transcripts fall outside the timeframes listed above, or they are considered illegible, applicants must provide new transcripts.

Applicants with academic credentials from outside the U.S. will need to follow the requirements for submission of foreign transcripts. Click on the Transcripts tab for information about international transcripts.
