The University of Connecticut has received almost 36,000 applications from students who want to be a part of “The Class of 2020”. Slightly more than 10% of the applicants will receive the “You’re accepted” paperwork in the mail. UConn has approximately 3,800 spots at their Storrs campus, and an additional 1,400 spots spread out among their campuses in Hartford, Stamford, Waterbury and Avery Point.
Applications to attend UConn have increased steadily since 2001 when approximately 13,600 applications were received. This years applications were spread out from all 50 states in the U.S. and Puerto Rico and 109 additional countries.
Admission standards have been increased this year as UConn has raised the minimum SAT score needed to be eligible for admission by 4 points.
The cost to attend the UConn Storrs campus is more than $27,000 for Connecticut residents and almost $50,000 for non-residents for 1 year of education. The regional campus costs are $12,000 for residents and $34,000 for non-residents.
