The University of Northern Colorado is hosting its second Free App Day of the year tomorrow, Dec. 1, where anyone, anywhere in the world can apply as an undergraduate to UNC without paying the $50 application fee.

UNC Free App Day is different from the Colorado Free App Day initiative that was held Oct. 13, 2020, which only waives college application fees for in-state students. UNC will be extending the opportunity to out-of-state and international students, as well as for students who are completing their applications later in the year or are thinking of transferring.

Interested students can apply to UNC without paying the application fee tomorrow through the Common App or through UNC’s Bear app. There will also be a virtual registration workshop from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (MST) tomorrow, Dec. 1, for those interested students to join for support from UNC’s Admissions team.

“We are excited to offer our own Free App Days because we see this as an opportunity to continually serve our student population that includes a large percentage of first-generation college students, especially this year due to the educational disruptions caused by COVID-19,” said Dave Fedorchak, Ed.D., director of Admissions at UNC.

UNC’s 2021 Free App Days are happening on Feb. 1 and April 1, with the latter focusing on transfer student applications.
