Undergraduate Scholarship and Financial Aid Information

All applicants, regardless of program, are automatically considered for Hartt's Performing Arts Scholarships (PAS). These scholarships are awarded by the faculty and based on the student's audition (for performance applicants) or interview (all other majors). No separate application is necessary.

  • Performing Arts Scholarships range up to full tuition.
  • Only full-time undergraduate students entering in the fall semester are considered.
  • Awards are not reviewed for increases in subsequent years.
  • Need-based grant funding is available through the University of Hartford Office of Financial Aid based upon the results of the FAFSA. The FAFSA filing deadline is February 15.

Awards are made upon acceptance and are renewable for the length of the program into which the student has been accepted. Students adding a second major or changing majors after beginning classes are not eligible for scholarship beyond the fourth year of study.

The student must maintain full-time undergraduate status, a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of a 2.75 overall or a 3.0 GPA in their major field(s) of study at The Hartt School. In addition, the student must maintain satisfactory academic progress as defined by the University of Hartford Undergraduate Bulletin. If the student fails to meet the renewal criteria, the scholarship will be rescinded and will not be reinstated.

U. S. citizens and eligible non-citizens may apply for federally funded financial aid in the form of Pell grants, college work-study, Perkins loans, and Stafford loans. These awards are made based on the availability of funds at the time the student is accepted and the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form. It is strongly recommended that the FAFSA be submitted to the federal processor by February 1st so the University will receive the results before admissions decisions are made. This will ensure that the University will be able to offer the best possible financial aid package based on the student's eligibility and the availability of funds. The FAFSA may be completed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov or you may obtain a paper application from high school guidance offices or the University's Office of Admission and Student Financial Assistance.

Minor of Music Financial Information


Students wishing to enroll in private music instruction as part of their minor must audition and are subject to a $850.00 fee per semester for the 2 credit lessons.
