Whether you are an incoming first-year student, transfer, or returning student, we are extremely excited that you are part of the University of Northern Colorado community. As you begin your time as a Bear, I want you to know that everyone in the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Services (SAES) is dedicated to your success and to meeting all your needs.
Team members across SAES want you to have an amazing campus experience. We have many resources available to you, either remotely or in person, and we hope you will take advantage of the many services we offer when you need them:
We have implemented a continuous improvement process that includes regularly assessing our programs and services to ensure we are offering you the quality support you need. And we may need your help with that. At some point, we may ask students for feedback that will help us get better. Your input is invaluable to improving our programs and services and ensuring that we fulfill our and UNC’s educational mission.
We encourage you to walk around campus and learn all you can about the University of Northern Colorado (UNC). And we would also love for you to seek us out and find out which of our programs and services can help you on your journey to becoming a UNC alum.
The years you spend at UNC should be some of the best ones of your life, and we are here to help make that happen if you will let us. Please reach out and tell us how.
Have a Beartastic experience,
