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, student-led orgs and programs, great degree programs and a network of support are just some of the reasons military-affiliated and veteran students choose UNC.
