Special Consideration for Education Abroad Students

Dependent child tuition waivers cover only the tuition component of an eligible dependent’s course fee. It will not cover any room and board charges or any other assessed fees.

Most Education Abroad programs have no tuition component or a tuition component that is considerably less than the UConn tuition fee. The waiver will equal the actual amount of the tuition charge for the student’s program.

Please check with the Education Abroad Program for the specifics of your dependent’s particular program.
