UNH Goes Early Action

Release Date:
10/8/2009 1:35 PM

Over the past three years, applications to the University of New Haven have tripled as interest in our programs continue to rise. With only 3,400 full-time undergraduate students in 100 majors, space has become extremely limited. As a result, we have instituted an Early Action Admissions Process for the upcoming year. The University of New Haven offers three non-binding admission programs for fall entry. To be considered for certain programs and receive numerous benefits, students must follow the established timelines and important dates listed below. Admission to the University of New Haven is extremely competitive and early applications are encouraged due to limited space in many of our 100 degree programs.

Students have the option to apply directly to one of our majors and programs or, if they choose, they may apply as an undeclared student. Most of our students do choose to apply directly into a major of their interest. This will allow the student an opportunity to dive right into coursework in their chosen field beginning their freshmen year.

When the student is ready to apply, we offer a variety of options for him or her to submit their application. We accept both online and paper applications from the University of New Haven, Common Application and Universal Application. There is no preference for any of the application methods. Our online application is available at

We hope to see your student’s completed application soon! If you or your student has any questions about the Early Action process, please contact Melissa Laskowski, Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions at or 203.932.7414 or visit the application process section of our website.
