Leaving UConn

Life happens and things change, if you need to leave the University be sure you reach out to the Dean of Students Office (Storrs) or the Regional Student Services Office (Avery Point, Hartford, Stamford, Waterbury) with questions.

Students who leave must take action to complete the process to ensure they have properly separated from UConn which will take you out of classes and adjust your fee bill as appropriate. Once the process is finalized, you will receive an email.
