Choose Direct Admission at the University of Hartford

What is Direct Admission?

If you meet the entry requirements, you may apply to the University of Hartford directly instead of enrolling through the International Pathway Program. We offer direct entry into undergraduate and graduate degree programs at the University of Hartford.

This is an excellent opportunity if you are from an English-speaking country or have high scores on the IELTS and TOEFL tests already. The International Study Center can also help you with your application.

You can speak with a student enrollment adviser about your qualifications by completing our inquiry form.

Why apply directly with us?

We are here to assist you every step of the way during the admission process, starting from your application submission to your arrival on campus. When you choose to apply through us, you won’t have to pay any application fees. Our support extends to guiding you through each step and ensuring you have the correct paperwork in place.

From the moment you apply, our dedicated staff will:

  • Help you learn about the US education system.
  • Conduct your credential evaluation.
  • Assist you with your application.
  • Remind you of key deadlines to meet.
  • Keep you up to date on the progress of your application.
  • Explain the steps you need to take to apply for your visa.
  • Prepare you for your arrival at the University of Hartford.

We will welcome, support, and help you make the most of your university experience.
