You've Been Admitted – What Comes Next?
Congratulations on your place at the University of Hartford. There are a few things you can do to get the best possible start to your studies when you join us this year.
Orientation is a great way to get to know UHart before starting your studies. Check your email for important orientation information. The IPP also posts Orientation and Post-Arrival information on Blackboard that you can access at any time.

Important Information For Joining Us Online
What If I'm Studying Online?
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our campus this year. If our campus is not open, you will still be able to benefit from the flexibility to begin your program virtually from home.* Whether you’re joining us on campus or online, you will still receive the high standard of a UHart education.
Even if you're studying online, your courses will consist of high-quality interactive sessions. Some examples of interactive sessions may include:
- Participating in a live discussion online
- Watching an online presentation and adding your own video comments or questions
- Commenting on a discussion board on your own time
- Viewing a lecture and participating in a Zoom meeting with your professor to answer questions
You will be able to access live and recorded sessions, and you will be informed of any required live interactive sessions well in advance so that you can plan ahead. Recorded sessions can be accessed at any time based on your own schedule.
Some interactive sessions may be scheduled to allow you to interact with instructors and other students. When working on group presentations, you will have the flexibility to find a time which is convenient for everyone in the group.
You will be expected to be an active participant in the virtual classroom, to be engaged in the program on a Monday through Friday basis, and to meet the assignment deadlines.
How Will You Connect with Your Professors?
All UHart students enjoy a one-on-one relationship with their professors – including those in the International Pathway Program. By studying with us, you will benefit from:
- Email response from instructors within 24-48 hours Monday to Friday
- Online access to skills assistance, academic coaching, and social engagement opportunities
- Online or In-Person – 1:1 support with an instructor
- Peer support – Interaction with other students from across the globe

If you are enrolled in virtual learning, you are eligible for a 100% refund (including deposit) up to two weeks into the program.
If you have evidence of two visa rejections and submit a refund request no later than two weeks after your start date*, you will receive a 50% refund.
If you complete your online program, but have not met the visa rejection criteria or submitted a refund request by the deadline, you will still receive the credits you earned and may be able to continue your virtual learning in the next semester.
