Admitted Freshman Checklist - Spring 2020

You're in. So, what's next?

Your place at UConn is secured by paying the $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit fee within two weeks of receiving your acceptance letter. You may do so online using a credit card or electronic check via the Student Administration System (Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers are recommended). Your deposit can also be paid by personal check or money order. Please include your NetID number on your payment method.

Submit the FAFSA
Students who wish to apply for financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For the best possible financial aid package, the FAFSA must be received by the Federal Processor on or before February 15, 2020.  Financial aid is unavailable for international students.

Review and/or Accept Financial Aid Awards
If you were awarded financial aid, log into the Student Administration System to view and accept, reduce or decline your offer. Offers of financial aid will become available beginning early March.

All new Huskies are invited to attend an orientation or registration session once your enrollment deposit is received. Create your spring class schedule and learn the ins and outs of our academic programs and campus community! Orientation is the only time new students register for classes.

Register for Orientation

Submit your Health History Form by January 1, 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 Admin (PeopleSoft) account and be unable to participate in add/drop registration processes.

First-year freshmen will need to submit their official final high school/secondary school transcript, including graduation date. Transcripts must be submitted to UConn directly from the secondary institution either electronically or by mail in a sealed envelope.

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.

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

If you took Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate courses in high school, view the equivalencies.
