CARES Act Update

Tuition, Fees, Room and Board

It is the policy of the Board of Regents for Higher Education, the governing body of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities, that there will be no discounting or refunds of tuition and fees for the fall 2020 semester, as students will be on campus for a similar amount of time as in past years, and the University is planning for a mixture of on-ground, hybrid and online classes.

The fees for room and board for the 2020-21 school year were established by the Board of Regents in February. No refunds are planned for room and board following the Thanksgiving recess this fall. This is due to increased costs being incurred by the University for testing, social distancing accommodation, and heightened cleaning procedures for residence halls and other facilities, including the use of specialized cleaning materials and associated labor costs.

Board of Regents Extends Housing Deposit Refund Deadline

In consideration of the uncertainty and change occurring in the course scheduling, class modalities and other operations of the Connecticut State Universities due to COVID-19, the Board of Regents for Higher Education Finance Committee has approved a one-time extension of the housing deposit refund deadline to July 31, 2020. This adjustment, which is for the 2020–21 Academic Year only, provides students and their families time to review their class schedules and make timely decisions regarding on-campus housing. The previously approved deadline for cancelling housing contracts without losing deposits was June 30. The Board’s decision allows students to cancel their housing contract by July 31 and have their deposit applied to their account or receive a refund.
