UConn Early College Experience (ECE) is your opportunity to take UConn courses in the comfort of your own high school classroom. You will take college courses in a familiar setting, simultaneously earn high school and college credit, and pay a fraction of the cost it would be to take the same courses on a college campus. By taking UConn courses through UConn ECE, you will officially start your college career as a non-degree student.
