Connecticut Commitment FAQs

A college education is a major investment for you and your family and it may be more accessible than you think, because we invest in you too. Whether you qualify for the Connecticut Commitment, or are able to benefit from the gift aid provided to approximately 63% of UConn's undergraduate students in the form of grants or scholarships, our goal is to make a UConn education affordable to each and every student selected for admission.
