Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of New Haven!
We put together a checklist for new Graduate Students that we hope will help make your transition to graduate school easy. Please note: We are developing a new, interactive Road Map. Until that is developed, please take a look at the checklist below.
2. Pay your Commitment Deposit and/or Housing Deposit if you plan to live in university sponsored housing.
Once the deposit is received, you will receive your University username and password to gain access to the myCharger portal.
If you are applying for a loan through financial aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
4. Submit Final Transcripts and Required Documentation
If you have been accepted to the university with a condition that you need to submit
a final official transcript before you enroll, this means that the transcript must show that
the degree was conferred or completed and be official transcripts. After your degree
is conferred, please send final, official transcripts from all colleges and universities
attended (submitted in sealed, stamped envelopes from the Registrar’s Office, or via
the E-Transcript service if applicable).
Accepted students who have submitted unofficial documents for expedited decision must submit final official transcripts prior to enrollment.
If final official transcripts are not received, students will be unable to register.
5. Contact Your Academic Advisor
Contact your academic advisor for course recommendations for the first term and discuss your plan of study. Go to your program page to obtain your advisor's contact information
6. Experiential Graduate Assistantship Program (EGAP)
Our EGAP program is highly competitive and extremely selective. When the faculty committee reviews the applicant’s admission folder, they will determine whether they believe an applicant is a good candidate for an assistantship. Applicants who are selected as candidates will be individually notified by email. If you were notified that you were selected as a candidate for the highly selective Graduate Assistantship program, please note that the process is similar to applying for a job. You will wait to hear from the assistantship supervisor if he or she believes you are a good fit for the position. Not all candidates will receive an interview, and not all interviewees will receive an assistantship.
7. Login Information for myCharger Portal
You will receive two separate emails, one with your username and one with your password within 24-48 hours from when you receive a decision on your acceptance. The username and password will be used to log into the university’s “MyCharger” portal for email access, registration, course information, and much more.
