Financial Aid:

Hartt scholarship offers have been allocated for the 2014-2015 academic year. Your first tuition bill will arrive in September (the university no longer uses paper billing; everything is done online) and cannot be issued until you have registered for classes, once placement tests have been taken and graded.

Instrumental Studies Division students will have received their scholarship contracts in the mail by June 1, 2014.  Please sign these contracts and return them by June 15, 2015.

The University of Hartford offers need-based financial aid to eligible students to help defray their education expenses. To be considered for need-based financial aid, you must submit the Free Application for Free Student Financial Aid at www.fafsa.ed.gov and complete the 2014-2015 Graduate Financial Aid Forms

There are three requirements which students must satisfy in order to be eligible for financial aid:

  • Be matriculated into a graduate degree or diploma-granting program.
  • Be registered for at least 6 credits a semester, except Summerterm, which contains 2 six-week sessions. You may satisfy the 6 credit requirement during Summerterm by taking 6 credits during one session or by taking 3 credits each session.
  • File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2014-2015 academic year and meet all eligibility requirements established by the U. S. Department of Education.

Financial aid packets will be mailed from the University of Hartford's Office of Financial Aid in July.  Please direct questions regarding financial aid to Priscilla Janssen .
