Tuition is currently about $3,900 a year for most in-state undergraduate students taking 12 credit-hours a semester. Tuition for music, theater, nursing and business schools is higher.
The Greeley-based university raised tuition 9.5 percent last year and 9.9 percent the year before that.
Colorado Department of Higher Education numbers show UNC had about 11,000 students last fall, making it the state’s fourth-largest public four-year institution.
Snow usually comes and goes in this part of the state. A forecasted storm is expected to stick around for a while. Forecasters are calling for snow to persist throughout the weekend in the high country, with a prospect of a couple of feet of powder by the time the storm starts to diminish on Monday.
