Welcome to Veterans Services

The University of Northern Colorado proudly supports the military affiliated community by assisting in the transition process and providing a stand alone space with a strong inclusive community. The acceptance of military credit and VA education benefits, awareness events, and the unlimited contributions and uncapped opportunities for the Yellow Ribbon program are just a few reasons why students choose UNC.

Announcements and Events.

  • FRIDAY, SEP 21: POW/MIA Rememberance day. We will be hosting a Flag Raising Ceremony at 0800 at the UC with a pancake breakfast immediately following at the Marcus Garvey Cultural Center. Join us!
  • REMINDER: You must certify under your URSA student account to receive your GI Bill benefits. Contact us if you need assistance.
  • UPDATE: The VA has requested that UNC suspend admitting VA Education Benefit students into the Foreign Language K-12 French Teaching and German majors.

Get Started

The journey at UNC and using the GI Bill and other military benefits begins here. This process may take up to 6-12 months, so it is never too soon. Whether using the Post 9/11 GI Bill or other education benefits like Vocational Rehabilitation, Veterans Services is here to help!
