Not for Profit
This school does not consider an applicant’s financial situation when deciding admission
In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.
Out-of-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who do not meet the state’s or institution’s residency requirements. Out-of-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students not residing in the locality in which they attend school.
Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

You get what you make of it. Research funding is limited, however when you are interested in running studies, if you impress the right people you can dominate your department.
Melissa from Smithtown, NY
I love the University of Hartford because it has a very diverse population of students. It has many different majors to choose from and lots of cool extracurricular activities to get involved in. I'd recommend attending this university because overall, the faculty and students really seem to respect one another and most people are friendly and welcoming.

There are many student clubs and organizations, and the student population is large enough that you're practically guaranteed to be able to find a group of people that you mesh well with.
The academic programs are highly varied and it's easy to take classes in any discipline with no major or minor required.
The school isn't cheap, but it has ample financial aid opportunities (full tuition baby!), so if you can afford it, it's absolutely worth attending.
