First-year students are required to submit the housing application by May 21, 2021.  Please note that it may take 3-5 business days after the enrollment deposit has been paid for the housing application to become accessible. 

Learning Communities are popular options for new Huskies. Students interested in participating in a Learning Community are encouraged to apply through the housing application by May 1 for priority consideration.

UConn Stamford 
Submit the online housing application to request university housing at UConn Stamford. While the priority housing application deadline is April 1, 2021, the enrollment deposit fee is not required to complete the housing application. Early completion is recommended as space is limited. Housing notifications will be sent to your personal email account. Students admitted after April 1 who are interested in university housing will be considered on a space-available basis.

Beginning mid-May, you'll receive notification to attend UConn's Orientation Program, provided your enrollment deposit fee has been received. All incoming students are required to complete orientation, where you'll learn about our academic programs, student community, and on-campus services; meet an advisor; and select fall semester classes.  

Orientation Information

The University has partnered with Google Apps for Education for its email system. Beginning mid-May, all official correspondences from the University will be sent to this address.

Set Up Your UConn Email Account

Submit your Health History Form by July 1, 2021, including proof of meningitis immunization. Students who are not compliant with all of the required immunizations by the tenth day of classes will have a hold placed on their student record and will be unable to participate in add/drop registration processes.

Your official final high school/secondary school transcript, including graduation date, must be submitted to UConn directly from the secondary institution either electronically or by mail in a sealed envelope by July 1, 2021.

If you have participated in a concurrent partnership program while in high school, official transcripts should be sent to the University of Connecticut directly by the participating college or university. Credit is considered for transfer, but some restrictions can apply. Mathematics must be at the calculus level or above, and credit is awarded at the discretion of the Mathematics Department of the University of Connecticut. In addition, online laboratory science courses are not transferable. UConn considers all courses completed in partnership programs for transfer credit in keeping with NACEP standards.

If you took Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses in high school, view the equivalencies. Official AP scores must be sent directly from the College Board to be considered for AP credit. To be considered for IB credit, the official IB transcript must be sent directly from the IB Office to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and students must have earned the IB Diploma.

Transfer Credit Reports are made available to incoming first-year students when credits are posted early in the first semester.

Gap Year and Deferment Requests

We understand that admission is not a one-size-fits-all process and that there are reasons a student may need to delay the start of their UConn education to up to a year from the admission term. Whether it be to pursue a unique travel opportunity, to serve in the military or public service, or due to chronic illness, simply submit the Gap Year/Deferment Request Form found in your applicant portal and share your plan with us. Your non-refundable enrollment deposit fee is still required by May 1 to secure your seat. Students may not enroll at another institution, professional certification program, or participate in a post-graduate year at a secondary school during the gap year/deferment period.
