Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

The University of Connecticut, founded in 1881, is a public, comprehensive university. It is recognized for its excellent academic programs and internationally acclaimed faculty. In addition to an extensive variety of top-quality academic programs offered at the undergraduate level, UConn is the only public university in New England with a School of Medicine, School of Dental Medicine and School of Law. Programs are also offered through the Colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Liberal Arts and Sciences; the Schools of Allied Health Professions, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Family Studies, Fine Arts, Nursing, and Pharmacy; and Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture. The university is fast becoming the school of choice for incoming freshmen: enrollment has jumped dramatically in recent years while academic quality has also increased. The university is currently in the midst of an historic building program called UCONN 2000, a nationally unprecedented ten-year, $1 billion program to renew, rebuild and enhance UConn's campuses. The 4,104-acre campus is located in Storrs, 30 miles from Hartford.
