Invest In What Matters Most

At the University of Connecticut we hunger for smarter solutions, for bigger ideas, and for greater understanding. We understand enrolling in college is a considerable financial commitment. That’s why our Office of Student Financial Aid Services is dedicated to helping our students and their families afford this opportunity.

At UConn we partner with you to help navigate the Financial Aid process to ensure you are well informed of the costs associated with obtaining a degree at all of our campuses. 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).

Apply For Financial Aid and Admissions

An investment in higher education is an investment in what matters - you and your future. Choosing UConn is a smart step toward success: we pride ourselves on being not only among the premier public research universities, but also a best value among public colleges.

We Are Here To Help

Our office is centrally located in the Wilbur Cross Building of the Storrs Main Campus and our team of Financial Aid staff is accessible to you to answer any questions. We encourage students and their families to use the tools and resources on this website to learn more about the financial aid process at UConn.
