A Special Note for Non-Degree and Undecided Applicants
A Non-Degree Application is designed for anyone interested in enrolling in individual courses but not interested in pursuing a degree or certificate program. Non-degree students are not eligible for Financial Aid and cannot enroll full time (12 credits or more). If you are applying as an “undecided” student who wants to be eligible for Financial Aid and enroll full time, please select “General Studies” or “Liberal Arts and Sciences” on your application.

Focusing on COVID-19 Safety
Tunxis faculty and staff have updated our course offerings to reflect the safest and most effective way to deliver our quality educational opportunities. The different delivery methods currently noted on our course schedule include:
- TRAD (Traditional): These courses will be delivered on campus at a specific time, place, and location. The use of Blackboard will occur from the start of the course in case a campus shutdown has to occur.
- ONLN (Online): All instruction and assessment is delivered asynchronously through Blackboard—often in conjunction with publisher-based content. These courses include discussion boards, assignments, projects, assessments, etc. However, courses designated as “Online with Classroom Component” (OLCR) may require an on-ground orientation and/or proctored assessments, although all instruction must be online/asynchronous.
- LRON (Live/Remote Online Courses): LRON courses are fully online, but students will be required to sign in remotely and interact with their professor and/or classmates on the days and times noted in the myCommNet schedule. Students will participate in live online sessions through Blackboard Collaborate, MS Teams or WebEx, with specific information provided by individual faculty members.
- HYBR (Hybrid): Course held both on-campus and online (a combination of 1&2 or 1&3) with a focus on scheduling class sessions on campus.
Synchronous teaching and learning happens in real time, on a certain day and time, in person in a classroom, or in a virtual environment like WebEx, Teams, or Blackboard Collaborate. Participants listen and respond to each other within the live, online meeting.
Asynchronous means you do not meet in person at the same time or in the same room/virtual meeting. You login to Blackboard or a publisher’s website to access content, and complete assigned activities or assessments at a time of your choosing. You will complete those activities according to the course syllabus schedule or posted due dates.
Please be assured that we have everyone’s safety first and foremost in our minds. As this pandemic subsides, we will begin to have more individuals and activities on our campus.
Prospective students are welcome to join these WebEx information sessions to learn more about Tunxis Community College.
The sessions will include presentations for prospective students about programs and services offered by Tunxis. Immediately following the presentation, participants are invited to ask questions.
Sessions are offered now through January 2021. Find out more and register now.
