The Guaranteed Admissions Program
The Guaranteed Admission Program is an agreement between the Connecticut Community Colleges and the University of Connecticut, designed for transfer students who enroll in a Liberal Arts transfer program at one of Connecticut's Community Colleges. Students who plan to continue their studies to earn a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Agriculture and Natural Resources or Business are guaranteed admission to the University of Connecticut once the associate degree has been earned, appropriate courses have been completed, and minimum grades and requirements for the selected program have been achieved. Advisors from individual community colleges and UConn meet with Guaranteed Admission Program students throughout their community college careers, helping their eventual transition to the University.
Students wishing to enroll in the Guaranteed Admission Program must be matriculated in the Liberal Arts transfer program at one of the Connecticut community colleges. To participate in this program, students must apply to the GA Program before they have accrued 30 transferable credits. All interested students should contact their individual community college counselor for further information and assistance in selecting courses that will meet both community college and UConn degree requirements.
The Connecticut Independent College Transfer Guarantee
The Connecticut Independent College Transfer Guarantee (Connecticut Guarantee) builds upon Connecticut’s existing public institution transfer policy, with the intention of unifying transfer in the state and expanding transfer options for Connecticut’s community college students. The Connecticut Guarantee will ensure acceptance at a participating four-year independent Guarantee institution for associate degree holding students who have met a minimum GPA requirement of either 2.0, 2.5 or 3.0. The minimum GPA requirement will vary by institution. At the core of the Connecticut Guarantee is an unwavering commitment to equity, opportunity and access for all students in higher education.
The Connecticut Guarantee is currently being discussed with the New England Board of Higher Education, the Connecticut Conference of Independent Colleges, the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities System Office, and institutions outside of the CSCU system. A list of participating schools will be available shortly.
