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.
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 Ch 31, 35, or 1606, Veterans Services is here to help!
Reminder: You must certify under your Ursa student account to receive your G.I. Bill™ benefits. Contact us if you need assistance.
