University of Connecticut Early College Experience
UConn Early College Experience (ECE) provides academically motivated students the opportunity to take university courses while still in high school. These challenging courses allow students to preview college work, build confidence in their readiness for college, and earn college credit that provide both an academic and a financial head-start on a college degree.
UConn ECE instructors, who are high school teachers certified as adjunct professors by UConn faculty, create a classroom environment fostering independent learning, creativity and critical thinking- all pivotal for success in college. Holy Cross High School offers UConn ECE courses in French and Spanish. To support rigorous learning, University of Connecticut library resources are available to all UConn ECE students.
UConn ECE students must successfully complete the course with a grade of C or above in order to receive university credit. University credits are highly transferable to other colleges and universities. Students are charged a $25 per credit fee. For additional information visit: www.ece.uconn.edu.
