“When incoming freshman Christian Sarmiento ’19 (CLAS) begins his first year at UConn in a few days, he will already know how to work independently and think critically – skills essential to succeeding in college. After all, he’s coming to UConn with more than a semester’s worth of credits under his belt from taking part in UConn’s Early College Experience program.
Sarmiento, a graduate of Stratford High School, is one of nearly 10,000 students who took ECE courses this past academic year. And a record 11,000 high school students have registered with the program for the upcoming year.
Eighty-four percent of those who take ECE courses receive a grade of C or better which is what is needed to earn UConn credit.”
