Apply to UConn

Making the decision to apply to UConn means you understand the importance of a UConn degree and where it can lead. Without question, choosing UConn will make you better. And students know it: Enthusiasm about applying to the University of Connecticut is contagious, and each year we strive to create an incoming class of the highest quality.

Applications are reviewed through a holistic approach for both first-year and transfer applicants. Consideration is given to the entire application, including grade point average, class rank, required essay, extracurricular activities, and optional letters of recommendation and standardized test scores. This allows us to gain a full understanding and measurement of an applicant's potential to be a successful UConn Husky.

If you have ever enrolled full-time at a post-secondary institution and have completed 12 or more credits after graduating from high school, you are considered a transfer applicant.

Students looking for non-credit programs, general interest courses, professional development/career enhancement opportunities, or specialized fine arts programs are encouraged to explore UConn's Bachelor of General Studies degree or non-degree credit study.

If you were previously enrolled at any UConn campus as a degree student, and are interested in readmission, contact UConn's Dean of Students Office at (860) 486-3426.

Students applying to programs in which professional licensure/certification is required are encouraged to review UConn's Program by State Look-up to determine if the program curriculum meets the educational requirements for licensure in your state.
