Undergraduate Catalog 2021-2022

Admission Policy

Non-Refundable Application Fee

All application fees are non-refundable. The fee (or approved waiver) must be completed at time of application. Fees are not refunded for any reason and are not applied to any other costs of attendance.

Previous Disciplinary Matters

Applicants to UNC with previous suspensions or felony convictions are subject to additional evaluation as part of the admission process. Applicants with felony conviction(s) are advised to contact the relevant academic department(s)for specific limitations.

Colorado ASSET

Colorado ASSET allows qualified undocumented students to pay in-state tuition to attend any Colorado college or university. For information regarding who qualifies for ASSET and how to request ASSET tuition, visit the Office of the Registrar website.

Personal Identifier/Bear Number

UNC students will be given a 9-digit personal identifier referred to as a Bear Number. Bear Numbers are used for identification purposes for a number of reasons on campus. A student’s social security number is not used as a personal identifier. Social Security Numbers must be submitted for financial aid, the College Opportunity Fund (COF), student employment, and enrollment reporting.

Selective Service Registration

In compliance with C.R.S. 23-5-118, Selective Service registration is required of male United States citizens between the ages of 17 years and 9 months and 26 years who wish to enroll at Colorado institutions of higher education. Individuals providing false information are subject to penalty of law and disenrollment.

International Transcripts

If any portion of a student’s high school or college/university transcripts are not in English, certified English translations must be submitted with application documents. Students will not receive transfer credit for courses previously taken at international institutions unless the transcripts have been evaluated. See the catalog section International Transcript Translation for more information.

Enrollment Confirmation

All domestic on-campus first-year, transfer, and second bachelor students will be required to submit an enrollment confirmation deposit to hold their space. The $200.00 non-refundable confirmation deposit is a pre-payment applied to the student's bill. The enrollment confirmation deposit is a student's gateway to housing, new student orientation and registration. A need-based waiver for the enrollment confirmation deposit can be requested through the Office of Admissions.


Students can request their admission be deferred one time for up to one year (3 semesters) for extenuating circumstances including military service, humanitarian efforts, religious services or personal matters. The deadline for deferral requests is the last day of classes for the term the student was originally admitted, and the student must have paid the enrollment confirmation deposit for the deferral to be approved. Deferrals will not be approved for students who will be attending another post-secondary institution prior to attending UNC.
