Undergraduate Admissions

Transfer Admission Requirements

If you are or have been enrolled at an accredited postsecondary institution and have completed 12 or more credits following high school graduation, the University of Connecticut considers you a transfer student.

To be considered for admission, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Academic course work comparable to UConn's General Education Requirements.
  • A 2.7 (on a 4.0 scale) cumulative grade point average in challenging academic course work (Note: Certain programs with limited enrollment require a minimum grade point average of 3.0 or higher for consideration). Please refer to the Restricted Programs section below for additional information. The minimum grade point average does not guarantee admission.
  • Good standing at, and eligible to return to, the last institution of higher education attended. Students who have been dismissed for any reason — academic, disciplinary, or otherwise — must satisfactorily complete one year of challenging, full-time academic course work at another institution before applying to UConn.

Students with less than one year of college are evaluated on the basis of high school and college work (high school GPA and class rank, SAT or ACT scores, quality of academic courses, and college performance to date).

Several programs have specific prerequisites, early deadline dates, limited enrollment, and/or other special requirements to be eligible for transfer admission. Please refer to the Restricted Programs section below for details regarding your program of interest.
