New England Regional Student Program

If you are a legal resident of a New England state, you may be eligible for a tuition reduction under the New England Regional Student Program. The New England Board of Higher Education provides New England residents with a tuition reduction when they pursue certain majors at New England public colleges and universities.

To be eligible for this tuition reduction, the student must be enrolled in an approved degree program that is not available at a public institution in their home state. Qualified students pay 175% of UConn's in-state tuition cost.

1 Mandatory fees for Storrs students. Fees reported are the 2020-21 rate and are subject to change with board approval. 

2 The room charge is based on a standard double which is what most incoming students receive. Financial Aid uses an average room charge when calculating Cost of Attendance. Amount reported is the 2020-21 rate and is subject to change with board approval.

3 The meal plan is based on the Value meal plan. Amount reported is the 2020-21 rate and is subject to change with board approval.

4 All full-time students are required to be covered by health insurance. Students are therefore automatically billed for the University's health insurance plan every fall. If the student is already covered, they can waive the health insurance fee in their Student Administration account. For specific information regarding the University health insurance plan, please visit the Student Health Services website

5 This is an optional fee which may be waived in your Student Administration account once your fee bill is available. 

The Office of the Bursar provides the official University fee structure and most up-to-date information regarding direct and indirect costs.
