Tuition and Costs

Invest in your future.

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance ranks UConn a “Best College Value” among top public colleges, saying that “students can receive a stellar education without graduating with a mountain of debt.” And with most of our students receiving financial assistance, we agree. Our goal is to make a UConn education affordable to each incoming student.

Incoming freshmen are automatically considered for most merit scholarships, making the goal of affordability that much easier for you. And UConn employs students each year in nearly every University department, giving students the opportunity to not only  offset the cost of college, but also to gain valuable work experience.
