UConn Guaranteed Admissions Program (GAP)

The Guaranteed Admission Program is an agreement between the University of Connecticut and CT State Community College. It is designed for students who are enrolled in a Liberal Arts transfer program at CT State Community College and plan to earn a bachelors degree in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Agriculture, Health, Natural Resources, and the School of Business at the University of Connecticut.

To Qualify for Admission:

  • Complete and submit an application for the GAP program before completing 30 or fewer transferable credits.
  • Earn an Associate’s in Liberal Arts & Sciences-Transfer degree within five years.
  • Earn a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0.
  • The minimum GPA for the School of Business is 3.3 and students must complete all the prerequisites for the school of business.
  • Plan to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Agriculture, Health, Natural Resources; or Business at UCONN.

Students must apply for the program before they have earned more than 30 transferable credits at the community college. (“Transferable credits” refers to college-level courses. Developmental and ESL courses are not included in the count.)  *You must meet with an GPA Advisor to apply. Applications are not available online*

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 of Connecticut. (Storrs, Stamford — the campus of the student’s choice)

Please note: This program does not require the student to attend UConn! Admission to UConn via this program can be looked at as “insurance” or as one good option among others. It will help the student focus on transfer, and GPA advisors will help students consider and apply to other possible four year colleges.
