Do not let costs keep you from applying. Give us the opportunity to make the University of Hartford affordable for you.
The Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford offers a unique combination of educational benefits to its students. The advantages of a large university are combined with the personal attention typical of a small college. We are sensitive to the current economic situation and have a number of financial assistance programs to help make our outstanding private education affordable for families of all incomes.
Each year, the University awards scholarships and grants up to full tuition on the basis of academic merit, athletics, artistic talent (Hartford Art School), and performance (The Hartt School). These scholarships are available to all students regardless of financial need and applicants are automatically considered for these awards when they are reviewed for admission to the University. The Office of Admission and Student Financial Assistance notifies prospective students of offers of admission.
Students applying for need-based financial assistance must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We recommend filing the FAFSA prior to Feb. 15 in order to receive first consideration for available need-based funds. Our Federal School Code is 001422. The forms are available at www.fafsa.gov.
The Hartford Art School and the University of Hartford offer government-sponsored, need-based financial aid, including Pell and SEOG grants, work study, state independent college grants, and student loans. To be considered for any of these programs, you must complete the appropriate financial aid form and mail it, generally no later than Feb. 15. Contact the University of Hartford Student Financial Assistance Office at 800.947.4303 or 860.768.4296 for more information. You can also access the financial aid website here.
