The University of Hartford is accredited by the Board of Higher Education of the state of Connecticut and by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Individual schools and programs carry additional accreditations. For more information on accreditation, see the undergraduate bulletin.
Students who have not been accepted into a degree or certificate program at the University of Hartford are considered non-matriculated students. Non-matriculated students are welcome to take up to 15 credits (five standard courses) at the University. These students must obtain an advisor's signature through the Center for Adult Academic Services in order to register. Students must have satisfied the prerequisites of any course they wish to take and may be required to obtain special permission for certain courses from department chairs or course instructors.
Students pursuing degrees at other colleges may take courses at the University of Hartford. The students must work with their home college to determine if and how the University of Hartford course credit will transfer.
Students who wish to take courses for intellectual pleasure or to pursue a particular interest area are welcome to take up to 15 credits at the University of Hartford.
Students wishing to take a course for interest, not credit, may register for courses as auditors. In general, the charge to audit a course is half of the per-credit charge for the course, plus fees, provided that audit status is declared at the time of registration. For audited courses, no grade is given and no credits are assigned.
The Undergraduate Bulletin, published annually in the fall, contains detailed information on all University policies and programs, as well as course descriptions. See Bulletin.
