letter from the DEAN
The University of Connecticut offers graduate degrees in more than 100 subject areas, and we enroll nearly 7000
students in doctoral, masters, and certificate programs. The Graduate School is the focal point for all of this activity

We work with each graduate student who applies for admission, with advisory committees to facilitate students’
progress towards a degree, and most importantly, we celebrate with you and your significant others when you gradu-

The Graduate School offers a wide variety of services to complement the discipline-specific training you will receive
within your department or program. We work closely with the Graduate Student Senate, the Graduate Students
of Color Association, and the Postdoc Association to enrich the
community of scholars and to strengthen friendships and profes-
sional interactions across disciplinary boundaries

The University of Connecticut provides a rich, welcoming en-
vironment for graduate study, and we remain committed to the
progress and well-being of all our students. Should you consider
applying to the University of Connecticut for graduate work,
please explore our guide to graduate programs. If you’ve just
been accepted, you’ll want to read our guide, “What you need to
know before you enroll.” If you’re already here, we are delighted,
and we know you have made a great choice. You’ll find links to
helpful resources on the “Current Students” page on The Grad-
uate School website

Whatever your reason for viewing our catalog, I hope you’ll
find what you’re looking for. If you don’t, please visit our online

Application Deadlines
Applicants are advised to check with appropriate academic depart-
ments concerning deadlines, and they are advised to submit their
applications for admission as early as possible. At a minimum, ap-
plicants should file the application for admission several months
in advance of the first (1st) semester of coursework. In no case will
applications for admission to a particular semester be accepted af-
ter the first (1st) day of classes in that semester. All credentials, in-
cluding official transcripts covering all undergraduate and graduate
work taken up to the time of application, as well as the non-refund-
able processing fee, must also have been received by deadline dates

International Applicants
To ensure academic success, it is highly recommended that stu-
dents studying on a visa sponsored by the University of Con-
necticut be present in the United States and attending class-
es by the tenth (10th) business day of their admitted term

Students whose native language is not English, regardless of visa
status, must show evidence of proficiency in the English lan-
guage by having earned either an Internet-based (IBT) TOEFL
(Test of English as a Foreign Language) score of at least 79 or a Pa-
per-based (PBT) TOEFL score of at least 550, an overall band score
of 6.5 or greater on the IELTS Academic Module (International En-
glish Language Testing System), or an overall score of 53 or great-
er on the PTE Academic test. Some departments require the Test
of Spoken English (TSE) or the Test of Written English (TWE)

If you are not a native speaker of English and you expect to hold a teach-
ing assistantship, you must satisfy the University’s English Proficien-
cy Policy at: before
being allowed direct instructional contact. This policy applies to all
prospective teaching assistants, regardless of citizenship or visa status

Supplementary and Departmental Transcripts
If a student is admitted before completing a baccalaureate or graduate
degree or additional non-degree coursework which is in progress at the
time of application, admission is conditional on the completion of the
degree or coursework and the submission to The Graduate School by
the end of the first (1st) semester of study of a final supplemental official
transcript. Until all transcripts have been received, the plan of study
will not be approved. All transcripts submitted, including test scores,
become the property of The Graduate School and are not returnable
