The Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP) is an agreement between the Connecticut Community College System and the University of Connecticut, designed for transfer students who enroll in a Liberal Arts transfer program at one of Connecticut's community colleges. Students who plan to continue their studies to earn a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Agriculture and Natural Resources or Business are guaranteed admission to the University of Connecticut once the associate degree has been earned, appropriate courses have been completed, and minimum grades and requirements for the selected program have been achieved. Advisors from individual community colleges and UConn meet with Guaranteed Admission Program students throughout their community college careers, helping their eventual transition to the University. Students wishing to enroll in the Guaranteed Admission Program must be matriculated in the Liberal Arts transfer program at one of the Connecticut community colleges. To participate in this program, students must apply to the GA Program before they have accrued more than 30 transferable credits1. All interested students should contact their individual community college counselor for further information and assistance in selecting courses that will meet both community college and UConn degree requirements.
1 On October 5, 2012, the Guaranteed Admission Oversight Committee voted to change eligibility requirements, endorsing the proposal to allow students who have earned up to 30 credits to participate in the Guaranteed Admission Program.
