Submit Your Health History Form

Submit your Health History Form by January 1, including proof of meningitis immunization. Students who are not compliant with all of the required immunizations by the tenth day of classes will have a hold placed on their Student Admin (PeopleSoft) account and be unable to participate in add/drop registration processes.


Submit Your Official Final Transcript

First-year freshmen will need to submit their official final high school/secondary school transcript, including graduation date. Transcripts must be submitted to UConn directly from the secondary institution either electronically or by mail in a sealed envelope.


Transferring Credit

If you have participated in a concurrent partnership program while in high school, official transcripts should be sent to the University of Connecticut directly by the participating college or university.  Credit is considered for transfer, but some restrictions can apply.  Mathematics must be at the calculus level or above, and credit is awarded at the discretion of the Mathematics Department of the University of Connecticut.  In addition, online laboratory science courses are not transferable.  UConn considers all courses completed in partnership programs for transfer credit in keeping with NACEP standards.

Transfer Credit Reports are made available to incoming freshman when credits are posted early in the first semester.

If you took Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate courses in high school, view the equivalencies.


International Students:  Form I-20, SEVIS I-901 and Transfer-In Form

The Form I-20 will enable you to apply for the F-1 visa necessary to study in the United States. The F-1 application should be completed immediately as it is difficult to determine the length of time for processing.  We will issue the Form I-20 and your official letter of admission after your Financial Declaration Form with supporting documents and enrollment deposit are received and the checklist items in the Student Administration System are completed. 

International students with F-1 or J-1 visas who have attended an academic institution in the United States prior to enrolling at the University of Connecticut are required to complete the Transfer-In Form.

We will issue the Form I-20 and your official letter of admission after your Financial Declaration Form with supporting documents and enrollment deposit are received and the checklist items in the Student Administration System are completed.  Please allow 3 – 4 weeks for processing Form I-20s.
