An investment in higher education is an investment in what matters — you and your future. Choosing the University of Connecticut is a smart step toward success: we pride ourselves on being not only among the premier public research universities in the nation, but also a best value among public colleges.
Approximately 50% of UConn's undergraduate students receive gift aid in the form of grants and scholarships.
More than $400 million in financial aid support for UConn students annually
Higher education is an invaluable investment. Our goal is to make a UConn education affordable to each student selected for admission.
We understand enrolling in college is a considerable financial commitment. That’s why our Office of Student Financial Aid Services is dedicated to helping you afford this opportunity, working closely with students and their families to help make UConn your reality. The cost to attend varies depending on each student’s personal financial situation, and your financial aid offer will be tailored to your individual need. Offers typically include various forms of aid, such as scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study.
All students are automatically considered for merit scholarships when they apply for admission. To be considered for other forms of aid, you must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) between October 1 and UConn’s on-time deadline of February 15 using school code 001417.
Financial aid, including grants and loans, is only available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
