Admission Guidelines for Current UConn Students
Your admission to the School of Engineering is based on space availability in the desired major and your academic performance as indicated by your cumulative grade point average (cGPA). Your application will be reviewed in comparison to others who apply, to your targeted major, in the same semester as you.
Applications are only accepted on-line. The site is: request.engr.uconn.edu. Applications are only reviewed twice a year – in January and June.
- To be considered for spring admission, you must enter your application in the Request system by December 25th.
- To be considered for fall admission, you must enter your application in the Request system by May 25th.
You will be notified of your admission status through your UConn email address. You may only have one active application in our request system at a time, but you can reapply for future admissions reviews if originally denied admissions to your desired major.
