College is one of the best investments you will ever make and paying for your education may be more affordable than you think. UConn offers a variety of scholarships that reward academic and community service accomplishments.
Scholarships are only available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
UConn has a series of renewable merit scholarships for high school seniors with a record of high academic achievement and leadership.
Incoming freshmen are automatically considered for most merit scholarships administered by the University of Connecticut. However, a nomination from the high school is required for consideration for UConn's Nutmeg Scholarship and the Day of Pride Scholarship.

New England Regional Student Program
If you are a legal resident of a New England state, you may be eligible for a tuition reduction under the New England Regional Student Program. The New England Board of Higher Education provides New England residents with a tuition reduction when they pursue certain majors at New England public colleges and universities.
To be eligible for this tuition reduction, the student must be enrolled in an approved degree program that is not available at a public institution in their home state. Qualified students pay 175% of UConn's in-state tuition cost.
Eligible Programs & Additional Information
For the purpose of assessing the cost of tuition, each UConn applicant will be classified as a Connecticut resident or a non-resident. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions uses the information provided by the Connecticut General Statutes to determine an applicant’s residency classification. Failure to complete residency information on your application for admission will result in a non-resident classification.
Please review the Connecticut General Statutes regarding tuition charges.
Higher education is an invaluable investment. Our goal is to make a UConn education affordable to each student selected for admission.
In fact, more than 86 percent of UConn students receive some form of financial assistance. Our Office of Student Financial Aid Services is your one-stop source for information on scholarships, grants, loans, need-based financial aid, veteran's benefits and student employment.
Financial aid, including grants and loans, is only available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally funded program for students with demonstrated financial need. The FWS program offers a wide variety of part-time positions at UConn's main campus in Storrs and five regional campuses. On- and off-campus community service positions are also available.
Unlike other forms of financial aid, a FWS award is not applied to a student's fee bill. Instead, students will receive a biweekly paycheck for hours worked to spend on books and other educational expenses. Students interested in the Federal Work-Study program should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
UConn employs more than 5,000 students each year in nearly every University department. Part-time jobs are available on campus, and they often have flexible hours that allow you to work around your class schedule.
The United States Department of Education reports that students who work part-time remain in school at a rate significantly higher than non-working students. UConn students work in a variety of areas including computer programming, recreation, food services, public safety, administrative support, library services, arts and media, tutoring and health services. Positions include entry level, supervisory and highly technical jobs.
