Tunxis is operating under special conditions due to COVID-19.
College buildings are currently closed and all classes have been moved online until further notice.
Tunxis faculty and staff are available to answer questions, take registrations and assist you remotely.

Tunxis campus buildings are temporarily closed and placement testing is on hold.  During this time, course placements will be determined by a combination of high school GPA and course grades or SAT/ACT/GED scores or successful completion of college-level English and/or math.  Incoming students must complete the form below to submit course placement information.

Email tx-placement-testing@txcc.commnet.edu with specific questions regarding placement testing.
