Admission Process

We join colleges and universities across the nation in supporting and encouraging meaningful and constructive expression of beliefs. Participation in peaceful forms of protest will not have a negative impact on admission decisions at the University of Hartford.

The University of Hartford welcomes applications from students who have earned credit from other institutions of higher education. The University accepts applications on a rolling basis, with the exception of the Hartt School, but encourages all students to apply as early as possible.

Transfer students should apply the semester before their desired entry date. Please have your official transcript sent prior to the conclusion of the semester you are currently enrolled in.

Please submit

  1. »  Application
  2. »  Application fee of $35
  3. »  Official collegiate transcripts from all previously attended institutions regardless of achievement or desired credit
  4. »  Students with less than thirty completed semester hours at the time of application must submit their standardized test scores (SAT/ACT) and their official final high school transcript.
