Connecticut Community College
Transfer Opportunities

There are two avenues for prospective community college transfer students to seek admission to the School of Business at the University of Connecticut. If you are transferring from another institution that is not a Connecticut Community College, please visit this page.


Fulfill specific pre-requisites at your community college to be eligible for consideration for direct transfer admission to Business. Direct admission requires all seven of Business critical courses competed prior to transfer.


To be considered for admission to UConn as a transfer student, UConn Admissions requires:

  • Academic course work comparable to UConn's General Education Requirements
  • Good standing at, and eligible to return to, the last institution of higher education attended. Students who have been dismissed for any reason — academic, disciplinary, or otherwise — must satisfactorily complete one year of challenging, full-time academic course work at another institution before applying to UConn.

Students with less than one year of college are evaluated on the basis of high school and college work (high school GPA and class rank, SAT or ACT scores, quality of academic courses, and college performance to date).

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Health Care Management

The Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP) is an agreement between the Connecticut Community College System and the University of Connecticut, designed for students who enroll in a liberal arts transfer program at one of Connecticut's community colleges to transfer seamlessly to the University of Connecticut without needing to apply. Students are guaranteed admission to the University of Connecticut once the associate degree has been earned, appropriate courses have been completed, and minimum grades and requirements for the selected program have been achieved. To be eligible for GAP:

  • Enroll at a Connecticut community college.
  • Apply to the Guaranteed Admission Program with 30 or fewer transferable credits
  • Earn an associate degree in a Liberal Arts Transfer Program within five years.
  • Achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.3. The grade point average will be calculated for all courses taken, including all grades for any repeated courses.
  • Complete all School of Business Critical Courses with a minimum grade of B.
  • Plan to earn a bachelor's degree in a School of Business program at UConn.
  • Once you determine your desired UConn campus, you must choose from the Business majors offered at that campus.

The Accounting Transfer Pathway is offered only to students at Manchester Community College.
