Admission and Financial Aid
⭐ Admission and Financial Aid
Making the decision to apply to the University of Connecticut means you understand the importance of a UConn degree and where it can lead. Every year we strive to create an incoming class of the highest quality, a diverse student body comprised of intellectually curious, highly motivated, and academically accomplished individuals of strong moral character. This means no one piece of information — grade point average, class rank, essays, extracurricular activities, letters of recommendation (optional), or standardized test scores (optional) — will determine if you would be a good fit for our community. Instead, we make selections based on a comprehensive review of all the information you provide on your application, both academic and personal. This allows us to gain a full understanding of your potential to thrive at UConn.
Now Test Optional
A number does not define your success as a UConn Husky. That's why we're allowing first-year applicants to choose whether or not to submit results from standardized tests through the fall 2023 admission cycle. No admission decision shall be impacted, and no student disadvantaged, if a standardized test score is not provided.
Automatic Consideration for Merit Scholarships
You’ve earned it. We know students applying to UConn have excelled throughout high school and are eager to search out new opportunities in college. UConn considers all first-year admission applicants for merit scholarships and our elite Honors Program. We award scholarships and Honors placement to many outstanding and deserving students each year who achieve and exceed educational goals.
Together, we’ll help you afford a UConn education. 62% of UConn undergraduate students receive gift aid in the form of grants and scholarships. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for various types of aid that will help fund your education. For details, visit financialaid.uconn.edu.
• The FAFSA is available on October 1 each year. • UConn’s Federal School Code for all campuses is 001417. • UConn’s on-time deadline for financial aid eligibility is February 15.
