When in 1889 the University of Northern Colorado was founded its primary name was the State Normal School of Colorado. Later in 1911 the school's name was changed to Colorado State Teachers College and offered bachelor degrees after completion of a four-year course. In 1935 the name again was changed to Colorado State College of Education. Less than 20 years the name Colorado State College of Education was shortened to Colorado State College. And finally in 1970 the name was changed to the current University of Northern Colorado.
