Undergraduate Admissions

International First-Year Applicants

Students should apply as an international first-year applicant if they:

  • are a non-U.S. citizen or non-Permanent Resident and;
  • have completed secondary school (equivalent to U.S. grades 9-12)

Students who have previously enrolled at another college or university and have earned 12 or more transferable credits should apply as an international transfer student.

Admission Requirements

A strong academic foundation is the key to a successful admission application. International first-year applicants must complete secondary school (equivalent to U.S. grades 9-12) and be eligible to enter a university in their own country prior to the expected entry date to the University of Connecticut.

International applicants should have college preparatory coursework in the core subjects of English (if offered), mathematics, physical science, and social science reflected throughout their high school academic careers. Students applying to the school of Nursing or Engineering must have taken secondary school level physics and chemistry.

International students who have completed all four years of secondary school in the U.S. are required to meet the domestic first-year admission requirements.
