UConn Alliance Pathway

At the University of Connecticut we are always in search of ways to identify, recruit, and support talented and deserving students from across the state, which is why we have partnered with Connecticut’s State Department of Education Alliance Schools to launch the UConn Alliance Pathway.

The UConn Alliance Pathway is an initiative to identify high-achieving students attending an Alliance School, many of whom are first-generation to college, from populations underrepresented in higher education and from underserved communities, and provide enhanced support to pave the pathway to enrollment at UConn. As part of the UConn Alliance Pathway,  the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will connect with Alliance students who start their senior year in the top 10% of their class and/or the top 10% of those students with a family income qualifying for free/reduced-price meals.

Eligible high school seniors identified through the UConn Alliance Pathway may opt in to receive enhanced support throughout the application process including access to in-person and virtual application events, FAFSA completion workshops, information on the range of support opportunities available to them throughout the college search process, and details on their potential for admission. Eligible applicants may also receive an application fee waiver.

Participation in the UConn Alliance Pathway is optional to eligible CT Alliance districts.
