The Connecticut Commitment is estimated to cost about $1 million per class per year, according to University of Connecticut’s vice president for enrollment planning and management Nathan Fuerst.

Current students are not eligible for the program, which provides incoming Connecticut residents who come from families with an annual income of under $50,000 to attend UConn tuition-free. 

“We want to first make sure the resources are there for [incoming] students to keep getting this every year,” Fuerst said.
