Tuition & Aid
An investment in higher education is an investment in what matters — you and your future. Choosing the University of Connecticut is a smart step toward success: we pride ourselves on being not only among the premier public research universities in the nation, but also a best value among public colleges.
Cost of Attendance
Higher education is an invaluable investment. Our goal is to make a UConn education affordable to each student selected for admission.
Our Office of Student Financial Aid Services is dedicated to helping you afford this opportunity, working with you and your family to help make UConn a reality. The cost to attend varies depending on each student’s personal financial situation. In addition to direct costs, indirect costs such as books, supplies, and transportation are taken into consideration when calculating financial need.
Types of Aid
Your financial aid offer will be tailored to your individual need. Offers typically include various forms of aid, such as scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study.
- All students are automatically considered for merit scholarships when they apply for admission.
- To be considered for other forms of aid, you must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) between October 1 and UConn’s on-time deadline of February 15 using school code 001417.
How to Receive Aid
We offer a number of scholarship opportunities for incoming and continuing students.
Information about payments is available through UConn's central Office of the Bursar. UConn Waterbury has a bursar’s office that can answer questions and accept check and money order payments.
Notes & Tips
- Checks are made payable to University of Connecticut and can be mailed to the UConn Waterbury Bursar’s Office.
- Did you submit your Title IV waiver?
- Did you submit your health insurance waiver? The deadline is September 15 for students entering in the fall and February 15 for students entering in the spring.
- If you took out a federal loan, did you submit your entrance counseling and master promissory note at StudentAid.gov?
