Are you trying to decide which University and Animal Science Program is right for you? Let us help you make an informed decision. 

The University of Connecticut is currently offering a number of virtual events and tours to showcase all that UConn has to offer. These events are designed with one purpose in mind: to provide whatever information you may need about UConn. 


All meeting appointments and animal unit tours are currently being held virtually!

Admitted and Prospective Students:

If you have additional questions, please follow these easy steps:

Step 1

Fill out the form below to arrange a phone call or virtual meeting with an animal science advisor.

(Prospective Undergraduate Student Form)

Visitors can speak virtually with a department faculty academic advisor to discuss the animal science program. The information on the form will be submitted to a member of the ANSC staff who will schedule a phone call or WebEx appointment with the appropriate faculty advisor and contact you via email with the details of your virtual meeting.

If you are interested in speaking to our Polo or Equestrian Team coaches, you can contact them directly.  Contact information for coaches can be found here.

Step 2
