Fee Waiver Policy

As we are committed to promoting a diverse graduate community, the Graduate School has agreed to waive application fees for prospective students associated with the following organizations and partnerships:

In addition, the application fee will be waived for current UConn master’s degree students applying to a doctoral program in the same field and current UConn master’s or doctoral students applying to certificate programs.

At The Graduate School we acknowledge that there may be circumstances in which students do not belong to any of the above organizations or partnerships. In such cases, some individual departments at the University of Connecticut may offer a limited number of fee waivers for exceptional candidates and/or candidates from an underrepresented background.  In these cases, the department is responsible for paying the application fee. Please contact specific departments of interest for further information.

Additional questions or details regarding how to access application fee waivers should be addressed to The Graduate School admissions at gradadmissions@uconn.edu  or 860-486-3617.
