Hillyer College provides the first two years of the bachelor's degree at the University of Hartford. Although all Hillyer students who have completed the requirements receive an associate's degree at the end of those two years, our selection criteria focuses on students who are interested in pursuing a bachelor's degree and more.
The vast majority of Hillyer College students who complete our degree continue as juniors in one of the other six college or schools of the University of Hartford. Those who transfer to other schools at the end of two years have been accepted at institutions all across the nation from Ivy League to regional public universities.
