Welcome to the Graduate School
The University of Connecticut offers graduate degrees in more than 100 subject areas, and we enroll nearly 7000 students in doctoral, masters, and certificate programs. The Graduate School is the focal point for all of this activity. We work with each graduate student who applies for admission, we work with graduate students and their advisory committees to facilitate progress towards a degree, and most importantly, we celebrate with you and your significant others when you graduate.
The Graduate School offers a wide variety of services to complement the discipline-specific training you will receive within your department or program, and we work closely with the Graduate Student Senate, the Graduate Students of Color Association, and the Postdoc Association to enrich the community of scholars and to promote friendships and professional interactions across disciplinary boundaries.
The University of Connecticut provides a rich, welcoming environment for graduate study, and we are here to make that experience even better. If you are considering whether to apply to the University of Connecticut for graduate work, please explore our guide to graduate programs. If you've just been accepted, you'll want to read our guide, "What you need to know before you enroll." If you're already here, we are delighted and know you have made a great choice. You'll find links to helpful resources on our "Current Students" page.
Whatever your reason for visiting our website, I hope you'll find what you're looking for. If you don't, please visit our "Contact Us" page to find the best person to help you find it.
