Secondary School Transcripts, GED Records and College Transcripts
- Your high school transcript(s) should include your senior classes, class rank (if applicable) and latest grades earned. Transcripts must be submitted to UConn directly from the secondary institution either electronically or by mail in a sealed envelope.
- If you have completed the State High School Equivalency Diploma (GED), send the Office of Undergraduate Admissions an official copy of your diploma and a complete set of scores. Official transcript(s) of any work you completed in high school are also required.
- All postsecondary official transcript(s) from each institution attended are required whether or not credit is desired or expected. It is preferred that you include official transcripts in your packet of supporting materials. Transcripts must be in a sealed envelope from the institution. Transcripts may also be sent directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions from each institution.
- All academic credentials not written in English must be accompanied by an official, certified English translation.
UConn requires SAT or ACT scores to be sent directly from the appropriate testing service; we cannot use school transcripts as an official score report. When reviewing your SAT score, we are looking at your combined critical reading section and mathematics section score. The writing section of the SAT is not weighted or used in the application process. The ACT writing test is not required for admission. We encourage students to take the SAT and/or ACT more than once. We will accept the highest scores from your combined test dates (known as superscoring). SAT or ACT scores are not required if you are 25 years or older at the time of application.
In March 2016, College Board will launch its redesigned SAT. We will continue to superscore your evidence-based reading and writing (formerly known as the critical reading section of the current SAT), and math components of the test. However, due to scoring and content changes between test versions we will not superscore between the current and new SAT versions.
SAT - 3915
ACT - 0604
TOEFL & IELTS Examinations
All applicants whose primary language is not English, including international and non-native English speakers, must submit official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores. TOEFL or IELTS test scores can also be a valuable supplement to unsatisfactory Critical Reading SAT test scores. The minimum score requirement for the TOEFL is 550 (paper-based), 213 (computer-based), or 79 (Internet-based). The minimum score requirement for the IELTS exam is 6.5. Test scores must be sent directly to the University of Connecticut from the respective testing service.
Note: If you have ever enrolled full-time at a post-secondary institution after graduating from high school, you are a transfer student and must apply as a transfer student.
Programs in Acting, Art, Design/Technical Theatre, Music, Puppetry and Theatre Studies require either a portfolio, audition or interview in addition to the undergraduate application. There are no additional requirements for art history majors. Admission decisions for these programs will not be made until the Office of Undergraduate Admissions receives results of your portfolio review, audition or interview. Electronic submission through SlideRoom is available for most Fine Arts majors.
