Fall 2017 Admitted Freshmen

So, what's next?

Get to know your Network ID (NetID)

If you haven't already, you'll need to activate your NetID.  An email providing your NetID and activation information was sent from the University Information Technology Services (UITS) when you applied for admission. You will use your NetID to access the Student Administration (SA) System, HuskyCT, housing information and other technology services. If you participated in UConn Early College Experience, your NetID will not change. For questions regarding your NetID, or to reset your password, visit https://netid.uconn.edu


Pay Your Enrollment Deposit

Your place at UConn is secured by paying the $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit fee by May 1, 2017. You may do so online using a credit card or electronic check via the Student Administration System (Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers are recommended). Your deposit can also be paid by personal check or money order. Please include your NetID number on your payment method.

For assistance with making an online payment using a check or credit card, please view these video tutorials.

Submit Your Health History Form

Submit your Health History Form by July 1, 2017, 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 record and will be unable to participate in add/drop registration processes.


Submit Your Official Final Transcript

Your official final high school/secondary school transcript, including graduation date, must be submitted to UConn directly from the secondary institution either electronically or by mail in a sealed envelope by July 1, 2017.


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.

If you took Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses in high school, view the equivalencies.  Official AP scores must be sent directly from the College Board to be considered for AP credit.  To be considered for IB credit, the official IB transcript must be sent directly from the IB Office to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and students must have earned the IB Diploma.

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