Tunxis Community College in Farmington will offer accelerated credit courses during a Winter Session which runs December 29-January 19.

Registration is currently in progress and will be accepted through December 29, prior to the student’s first scheduled class. Courses meet Monday through Friday during the three-week session at an accelerated pace.

New students can register by email, mail, fax, or in person. Those who have not previously taken a credit course at Tunxis or another CT community college can submit an application online at tunxis.edu/apply.

Students who attend other colleges may enroll in courses at Tunxis and transfer the credits earned during the winter to their bachelor’s or associate degree programs. Those who plan to transfer credits should have the Tunxis courses approved by their home institution before they register to assure transfer of credits.

Accounting, art appreciation, art history, business, computer science, dental assisting, economics, U.S. history, mathematics, music history & appreciation, public speaking, sociology, and Spanish are among the courses offered. Online and traditional classroom courses are available. Visit tunxis.edu/winter to view all courses.
