Your deposit can also be paid by personal check or money order. Checks should be made payable to "University of Connecticut" and must include your NetID number on your payment method. Payment made by mail should be sent to:

The University of Connecticut
Office of the Bursar, Unit 4100
233 Glenbrook Road
Storrs, CT 06269-4100

Please do not send cash through the mail. Checks or money orders are the only acceptable forms of mailed payments.

ATTEND EVENT FOR ADMITTED STUDENTS

Each UConn campus welcomes its students in a variety of ways. Open Houses and Admitted Student receptions introduce you to faculty, fellow classmates and campus life at UConn.

If you will be attending Storrs, you may register for our Open House for Admitted Students.

If attending one of UConn's four regional campuses, view the Admitted Student Events page.

REGISTER FOR HOUSING

If you are attending the Storrs campus and wish to live on campus, you must complete the housing application. Please note that it may take 3-5 business days after the enrollment deposit has been paid for the housing application to become accessible.

If you are attending the Stamford Campus, submit the online housing application to request housing in Stamford's new residential facility. Early completion is recommended as space is limited. 

REGISTER FOR TRANSFER ORIENTATION

All new Huskies are required to attend an orientation or registration session. At Transfer Orientation, you'll create your class schedule and learn the ins and outs of our academic programs and campus community!

SUBMIT HEALTH HISTORY FORM

Submit your Health History Form, 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.

SUBMIT FINAL TRANSCRIPT

An official final transcript from the institution most recently attended must be sent to UConn directly from the institution either electronically through an authorized provider such as Parchment, eSCRIP or National Clearinghouse or by postal mail in a sealed envelope. Students who attended an institution outside of the United States where the transcript is in a language other than English must submit both an official transcript in the native language as well as a certified translation. Official transcripts can be sent to the address below:

University of Connecticut
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
2131 Hillside Road, Unit 3088
Storrs, Connecticut 06269-3088

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT FORMS

The Form I-20 will enable you to apply for the F-1 visa necessary to study in the United States. The F-1 application should be completed immediately as it is difficult to determine the length of time for processing.  We will issue the Form I-20 and your official letter of admission after your Financial Declaration Form with supporting documents and enrollment deposit are received.

International students with F-1 or J-1 visas who have attended an academic institution in the United States prior to enrolling at the University of Connecticut are required to complete the Transfer-In Form.
