    Median SAT
    1303 is the median SAT score and 30 is the median ACT score for admitted students at UConn. A score that is close to this median value indicates that you have a good chance of admission to the institution. However, it’s important to remember that colleges judge applications holistically. If the rest of your application is strong, it’s possible to make up for lower test scores.

    Coalition Colleges

    UConn is a Coalition Member College, which means they have completed a vigorous vetting process from the Coalition for College to ensure that they “provide substantial support to lower-income, under-resourced and/or first-generation students; offer responsible student financial aid; and demonstrate a commitment to student graduation.” That also means you can apply to UConn via the Coalition Application. The Coalition Application makes it easy to obtain application fee waivers if you qualify. It’s also a great way to discover other colleges that have demonstrated a strong commitment to affordability and strong student outcomes.

    Is UConn test-optional?

    University of Connecticutrequires students to submit either an SAT or ACT score. We can help you decide which of these tests to focus on, and if you are not happy with your current score, there are ways to improve both your SAT and ACT scores.

    What SAT/ACT score do you need to get into University of Connecticut?

    Colleges use standardized tests like the SAT and ACT as one of many factors to determine their admissions decisions. A high score on one of these tests does not guarantee admission to a college, and a low score does not guarantee rejection. However, the majority of accepted applicants to University of Connecticut receive between a 27 and a 33 on their ACT, or a 1200 and a 1405 on their SAT.
