UConn ECE is a concurrent enrollment program that provides an opportunity for high school students to take actual UConn courses taught by instructors who have been certified by UConn faculty as adjunct professors. ECE students are non-degree UConn students, eligible for a variety of benefits. ECE courses are equivalent to those offered at the University of Connecticut and are eligible to receive University credit. While some of our ECE courses are also AP courses, this program provides UConn credits in addition to any AP standing that students may receive through the AP exam. The UConn credit is awarded as a result of the grade the student receives in the class.

Students will receive University credit if they receive a final average of at least 73, have applied to the ECE program and have met all other specific ECE requirements outlined in each course syllabus. This credit is recorded on a University of Connecticut transcript, which is available upon request from the UConn Official Transcripts office. If a student is accepted and enters the University of Connecticut, the credit automatically becomes a part of the student’s academic record. If a student attends another institution, the University will furnish an official transcript of the course work to be submitted for transfer credit. More information is available at and the Coventry High School Counseling Department.
