UConn First Summer is a residential-only program. The cost of attending UConn First Summer is the same as it would be for any UConn student attending a Summer session at the Storrs campus and residing on campus; there is no additional program fee to attend First Summer and take part in First Summer activities.

Course fees for all Summer courses, including those listed in the First Summer program, are based on a flat per-credit rate for both in-state and out-of-state students, which is $575/credit for Summer 2020. The total cost of attending UConn First Summer is for two courses, other required university fees, and a housing and meal plan (residence on campus is mandatory during First Summer).

If you are interested in taking a class at UConn this summer on your own, outside of the full UConn First Summer program, you are always welcome to do so! See for more information on independently registering for courses as an incoming student.

What if I withdraw from UConn First Summer?

If for some unforeseen circumstances, you are unable to attend UConn First Summer but have already confirmed your participation and submitted payment, we will refund all program fees so if we receive notification by June 29, 2020.  The final deadline to withdraw from the program with a refund (minus the $45 University enrollment fee)  is July 17, 2020.

Please contact our office directly at if you need to withdraw from the program.  (Withdrawing through any other office may cause confusion for you and us both!)




Unfortunately, due to federal rules, financial aid is not available for the summer preceding your fall start at UConn.
