High School Partnership Program Criteria
The program is open in the Fall and Spring semesters only to high school juniors and seniors who have an overall “B” average, are recommended by their guidance counselor, and have appropriate placement scores. Recommended students will be eligible to take one course per semester free of charge (General Fund tuition and fees). Students taking on campus classes will be responsible for their transportation to campus and book expenses. Students taking online classes will be responsible for their book expenses.
Admission to individual classes is dependent upon space availability, budgetary funding and students having met any prerequisite requirements. Students will be notified by the Director of Admissions as to whether they are accepted into the class.
Students may apply for this program through their High School Counselor. Application information is sent directly to Guidance Counselors during each semester’s application cycle. See your guidance counselor for application deadline dates.
Required application items follow and all must be submitted to be considered for this program:
- A Tunxis College Application (parents signature required if under 18). No application fee required
- A High School Partnership Application Form with signature of your Guidance Counselor
- A current copy of your high school transcript
- All applicants must take the College’s Placement Assessment in its entirety. The Placement Assessment may be scheduled by calling the Academic Success Center at 860.773.1530.
This is a semester-to-semester program, so students who are accepted into the program must renew an application each semester they wish to participate. When reapplying students must submit an updated high school transcript, a High School Partnership application, and recommendations. They do not have to retake the College’s Accu-Placer Student Assessment nor do they have to resubmit a Tunxis application.
