Fees and dates for University of Connecticut

The University of Connecticut offers a competitively priced undergraduate education for international students, especially if you qualify for the University’s renewable merit scholarship. On this page you’ll find cost of attendance information and important dates and deadlines for applying.

Cost of attendance for international students

Tuition rate and estimated costs are for the 2021–22 academic year. Prices are in US dollars.
This is only an estimated amount, as the price for dorms, meals, and other expenses can vary.

ProgramTuitionFeesHousing and mealsOther (books, insurance, miscellaneous)Total expenses
Bachelor's degree (on Storrs main campus)$37,698$4,194$14,940$7,340$64,172 per year
College Preparatory Experience*$6,000$790$7,250$2,652$16,692 per semester

* These costs are for the on-campus College Preparatory Experience program at UConn’s American English Language Institute (UCAELI). The Online Academic English Program has the same tuition and fees but students will not need to pay associated costs of living in the USA.

Proof of finances

You need a Certificate of Eligibility – also known as “Form I-20” – to apply for your US study visa. To issue your I-20, UConn must have proof (usually a bank statement or sponsorship letter) that you have funding available to cover costs for at least the first year, including tuition, fees and living expenses.

For 2021–22, the minimum amount required is $64,000.

Important dates and deadlines

Please note that deadlines have now passed for Fall 2021. Applications for Fall 2022 are being accepted by Kaplan and will be submitted to UConn from August 2021.
