Prospective Students

JOIN THE UNIVERSITY OF HARTFORD

The University of Hartford is a vibrant campus of over 7,000 full-time and part-time graduate and undergraduate students from the United States and more than 65 countries around the world.

Our University is large enough to offer over 80 undergraduate level programs and 60 graduate level programs, yet small enough to provide you with a personalized experience and opportunities to learn and grow through a variety of campus activities. We promote international graduate education as an important part of our mission as a leading American university.

Proving Financial Support

Before we can create your I-20 for any undergraduate degree program, all prospective international students must provide proof of financial support.

You will need to present proof of financial support in ONE of the following four ways:

  • Guarantor's Statement of Financial Support.  This must be signed by you and your sponsor and dated within 6 months of your intended semester at the University of Hartford (July 1, 2018, for Spring/ January 2019).
    • First-year or transfer student form
    • Visiting or exchange student form
  • Statement of accounts from your sponsor’s bank indicating an amount equal to or greater than the dollar amount stated on the Tuition and Fees page under Total Required for I-20. This statement must be presented on stationary from your parents/sponsor's bank/lending institution.
  • Letter of Support (on bank letterhead) indicating a balance equal to or greater than the dollar amount stated on the Tuition and Fees page under Total Required for I-20. This letter should identify the account holder and his relationship to you.
  • Students from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait or UAE – Please provide a letter from your sponsor confirming that you will be receiving a government sponsored scholarship through SACM, The Kuwait Cultural Division or The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates

*If you have been selected to receive a University Scholarship please subtract this amount from the total cost of attendance.

Request Housing

About 85 percent of first-year students live on campus. We suggest living on campus as a way to make friends with students from the U.S. and other parts of the world. Living on campus will also make it easier to become a part of clubs and organizations, which will ease your transition to the University. 

We can offer you the opportunity to live on campus during International Student Orientation at no additional charge. We can greet you at the airport or train/bus station on the scheduled international student arrival day and bring you to campus to check in to your on-campus housing. Meals will be provided during orientation for students who live on campus during the orientation program.
