Undergraduate Enrollment Deposit


Please read the following information carefully before submitting your enrollment deposit:

Students who decide to enroll at the University of New Haven must submit a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $500 (for resident students) or $300 (for commuter students). If you are accepted for the fall semester, you can still pay your enrollment deposit. Please do not pay your deposit until you have definitely decided that you are attending the University of New Haven.

THE DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES; IT IS ALSO NON-TRANSFERABLE TO ANOTHER SEMESTER.

  • All freshman applicants should submit their deposit as soon as possible. Transfer students can choose to submit their deposit up until August 1, but we encourage earlier deposits if you are interested in living in University-sponsored housing. There are currently only limited spots remaining for transfer housing.
  • Students who submit a deposit after May 1 may be placed on a housing wait list, although we will do our best to place them in a room. If you are interested in living on campus, please pay your enrollment deposit as soon as possible in order to secure a room.

Please note that $300 of all deposits (both resident and commuter) will be applied as a separate orientation, registration, and enrollment fee. It is NOT applied towards tuition bills. The additional $200 for resident students is applied directly to the student’s housing bill.

Please keep in mind that the University of New Haven has the right to withdraw its offer of admission for the following reasons:

  • Any part of the admissions application contains misrepresentations.
  • You do not complete the requirements for high school graduation by the end of the current school year.
  • There is a significant decline in your academic performance during your senior year.
  • You submit a deposit to more than one institution.

You can pay your deposit by sending your enrollment commitment form back in the mail, or you can utilize our online payment system by clicking "pay your deposit" below. Note: Please do not attempt to pay the enrollment deposit on a tablet device. The deposit system may not be compatible with your tablet software.

It has been a pleasure working with all of our accepted students, and we look forward to welcoming you to campus. Go Chargers!!
