Apply to Hillyer College

You're exploring, and we are here to help.

As one of the seven colleges within the University of Hartford, we use the same admissions practices to make the the process as seamless as possible! Information about the application, letters or recommendation, test scores, and more can be found on the admission's page.

You can indicate your interest in Hillyer on the UHart application here or you can apply to one of our other six schools and colleges and let us determine if dual admission to Hillyer is right for you.  

WHAT IS DUAL ADMISSION?

Like many of our students, you may be offered dual admission. That means you will be enrolled in Hillyer College, as well as one of our other schools and colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences, the Barney School of Business, or the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions. You will focus your general education studies (60 credits) in Hillyer College, while also beginning to take classes in your major. You will experience all the benefits of the small class sizes, individualized faculty attention, and academic support that are part of Hillyer College. 

Can I apply through The Common App? 

Absolutely! If you want to apply directly to Hillyer College, please write "Hillyer College" in the major box. Once your application has been submitted, please send an email to hillyer@hartford.edu to let us know you applied. Include your intended major in your message, but don't worry if you are undecided. Hillyer courses are a great way to explore your passions and learn what you want to do.

do i need to take a test to be accepted?

The University of Hartford is a test-optional institution. For more on that policy, please click here. All applications are read wholistically; we focus on who you are and not just your academics.

WHO IS yOUR IDEAL CANDIDATE?

We are focused on finding students who are motivated and want to find their untapped potential. We can help you do just that. Show us your passion through your application and in person during an informational interviews with Hillyer Dean David H. Goldenberg and Director of Collegiate Recruitment and Communication Katie Dydyn.
