    UNC has worked with me a lot for financial aid and making sure my bill is covered. It's a cheap university, but you would never know based on the quality!

    I received a great fininacial aid package. It was much cheaper than other schools I was interested in. The only problem I have is with process of getting financial aid. It took me up until the first week of classes for everything to be completely finished which was frustrating and scary. Other than that, there are great resources on campus that are worth every penny. I still suggest applying for as many scholarships as possible.

    One of the best things about UNC is that you are getting just as good as an education as any other state colleges (CU, CSU) but it is so much cheaper! And also unlike some of the other state schools UNC has a lot of money to help for financial aid.

    This campus truly becomes a home away from home. Even if you don't plan to attend the University of Northern Colorado I highly recommend you to come a take a tutor. If you're undecided where you want to go come and spend a few days on campus, you'll love it!
