Private Scholarship Deferment

** Important Message: Please submit 2023-2024 school year scholarships.  A fall deferral will be posted for 10/1/23 and a spring deferral posted for 3/1/24. First payment plan installment will be held on July 20th, 2023. **

You may request a deferment for outside scholarships that are not processed through the UConn Financial Aid Office. If you have an outside (i.e., private) scholarship that has not yet been listed as a credit on your latest bill we will temporarily defer the value of the scholarship for a short period of time until your scholarship is received by the university. We will not defer scholarships which are contingent upon any criteria (based on a course grade, number of credits, GPA, etc.). To request a deferment for outside scholarships you must click the link below.

If the scholarship letter is equal or greater than $2,000.00 and does not indicate otherwise, the scholarship will be split between the fall and the spring semester. Scholarships less than $2,000.00 will not be split.

Scholarship letters must be sent to us every semester, prior to the due date. It is your responsibility to ensure we have received the scholarship letter and deferred the scholarship on your account to avoid any late fees or holds. Deferrals will be extended until 10/1 for the fall term and 3/1 for the spring term, if the payment is not received by the expiration date, it is the student's responsibility to make the payment and follow up with the appropriate scholarship organization. 

Payments should contain the student’s 7-digit Student ID number, be mailed directly to the University and include "Unit 4100"in the address to ensure it is received by our office.
