Placement Testing

Every Tunxis student is required to take placement testing for Math and English. The test is free, and it is used to properly place students in courses. Many classes have English or Math prerequisites, so the test insures that you are appropriately placed for maximum success.


Tutoring services are available to all registered students. The Academic Support Center provides peer and professional tutors primarily in the areas of math and science, but other subjects are available on an as needed basis. There is also an Online Tutoring Service available.

Disability Services

If you have a diagnosed learning disability or a physical disability, you may meet with a Learning Disabilities Specialist to obtain classroom accommodations. Documentation must be presented and assessed, and based on this information, the appropriate accommodations  will be given. These may include extended time for testing, help with note taking, adaptive technologies and others. All information is confidential and faculty and staff are careful to maintain the students’ privacy.


The Academic Support Center offers a variety of workshops throughout the year to help students be successful. Some of these include time management, test taking and test anxiety, note taking and  study skills. These may be arranged on an individual basis by contacting the Academic Support Center.
