Each year, more than 1,200 highly qualified transfer students enroll at the University of Connecticut. Transferring from one college or university to another can be challenging. That’s why we work hard to make transferring to UConn as smooth a process as possible. 

As a student thinking about or preparing to transfer to UConn, there are some things to consider. Browse through the information below to help you get started!


If you are or have been enrolled at an accredited postsecondary institution and have completed 12 or more credits following high school graduation, the University of Connecticut considers you a transfer student.

All applicants must apply through either the UConn Application (preferred for transfer applicants), or the Common Application. You may use either application to apply for admission to our main campus in Storrs and our four regional campuses.

All application materials must be received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by specific deadlines. These deadlines vary depending on the major to which the student is applying. Some majors accept application for the fall AND spring semester, while others only accept application for the fall.

As a transfer student, you will be transferring credit from your previous institution(s). But don't forget about any potential credit you took during high school, such as AP, IB, or dual enrollment credit.

All courses from out-of-state institutions as well as courses from Connecticut institutions that are not listed on this site must be evaluated by our staff and faculty. However, you can use the link below to look up course equivalencies from most schools in CT. This means that you can see how a course from Manchester Community College will transfer to UConn, for example.

It’s not just Storrs that has something to offer. Our four regional campuses across the state at Avery Point, Hartford, Stamford, and Waterbury each boast a unique experience, while still being UConn at their core. So whether it’s the main campus or a regional that you have your sights set on, schedule a visit (or just stop on by) and see for yourself why we are Huskies.
