Family Tuition Remission Program (Family Grant)

A student attending the University of Hartford as a full-time undergraduate who has a brother(s), sister(s), parent(s), or spouse also attending the University of Hartford for the 2018-19 academic year as a full-time undergraduate student may qualify for a Family Grant (see here ).

Financial Delinquency

Any student failing to pay his or her account fees with the University on or before the day it is due may be excluded from all classes, lectures, laboratories, examinations, co-curricular activities, and graduation until such payment is made. The student may also be denied grades, transcripts, diplomas, and the opportunity to register for subsequent terms if payment is not made when due or if the student’s debt to the University is discharged in bankruptcy proceedings. A default charge of 1.5 % per month on any unpaid balance may be charged until all fees are paid in full. If, in the judgment of the University, it becomes necessary to engage the services of a collection agency or attorney to obtain payment, the student must pay an additional collection fee of 15% of the principle balance plus any attorney fees, reasonable expenses, and other costs incurred, to the maximum extent allowed by Connecticut law.

Veterans’ Finances

Students eligible for veterans’ benefits are required to make their financial arrangements with the University in line with the policies discussed above. Any veteran seeking a special arrangement should contact Student Administrative Services Center or Registrar’s Office for instructions on obtaining reimbursement by the federal government.


Fines may be levied for violations of vehicular, library, housing, and other regulations (see University Code of Student Conduct as published in The Source).



Tuition Refund Insurance



Housing contracts are for the entire academic year (fall-spring terms). Students who wish to withdraw from housing must do so in writing prior to July 1 for the fall term. Withdrawal from housing for the spring term must be made in writing prior to January 1. Students who request to be released from their housing contract after these dates must make a written request to the Assistant Vice President of Residential Life. If approved, students will receive the appropriate refund of their housing charges consistent with the tuition withdrawal policy. Students who withdraw from the University during the first four weeks of the term will receive partial housing credit consistent with the tuition withdrawal percentages listed above. Returning students who have not fulfilled their financial obligations will be required to vacate University housing.


Refer to the University’s withdrawal policy.


Laboratory fees for the term are not refundable after the first week of classes and therefore are not subject to proration.




Disbursement of credit balances will be made on request through the Student Administrative Services Center. Overpayments that result from online credit card payments will be credited back to the charge card rather than refunded directly. Overpayments that result from online check payments (electronic check or ACH) will be credited back to the account used rather than issued a check refund.

To comply with federal regulations, Title IV credit balances will be automatically refunded within 14 days of the start of classes, or within 14 days funds are disbursed to a student’s account after the start of classes. In order to hold a Title IV credit balance within the same academic year, a Title IV authorization form can be completed online through the Student Self-Service Center. Please visit the Student Administrative Services website (hartford.edu/sasc) or contact their office at 860-768-4999 or sasc@hartford.edu with questions regarding the option to hold a credit balance for a future term.

The University of Hartford has partnered with BankMobile, a financial services company focused solely on higher education, to issue student refunds. All matriculated students are issued a secure activation code from BankMobile. This code is needed to securely set up a student’s refund preference with BankMobile. All students are required to set up their refund preference with BankMobile upon receipt of the letter.

Students may then select from one of the following refund disbursement options:

  1. electronic transfer of funds directly into an existing checking account;
  2. electronic transfer of funds to a BankMobile Vibe account, an FDIC-insured, no-monthly-fee, no-minimum balance checking account that is administered by BankMobile.

Textbooks and Supplies

Textbooks and supplies are not included in the cost of tuition. As a convenience to students, the University maintains a campus store in Harry Jack Gray Center where all necessary books and supplies, including art supplies, may be purchased. The cost of textbooks and supplies varies with the courses taken. Students should estimate not less than $75 per course. All sales in the campus store are on a cash, check, MasterCard, VISA, Discover, or American Express basis.

Changes in Arrangements

Because of the difficulty of determining long-range economic trends, the University reserves the right to make changes in its tuition, fees, and other charges, and in regulations, facilities, and class offerings, which, in its judgment, are considered necessary and reasonable, and to apply such changes to students already in attendance as well as to new students. No change in tuition and fees is made retroactively, however.
