Transfer Credit Instructions for Graduating Seniors 


Below is a message from the Early College Experience (ECE) Office at UConn regarding instructions on how to transfer ECE credits to another college or university;

This is a reminder to speak with your graduating seniors about requesting an official transcript from UConn. Transcripts can be sent to the grad’s new university or college to start the credit transfer process. Students should also send one to themselves for their records. Transcripts are free and unlimited. Transcripts are not sent automatically. Please tell students to first check if the high school instructor has submitted a grade for the course (due July 1) before requesting a transcript.
You may forward these instructions: 
Check your grade:
  1. Go to http://studentadmin.uconn.edu/ with your NetID and password.
  2. Click Self-Service > Student Center
  3. Under Academics select grades from the drop down menu.
  4. Select term to view and click the continue button.
  5. Click the class title to review details about the course. 
  6. Click the change term button to view grades from a different semester. 
Request a transcript:
  1. Contact your new registrar and ask where a transcript can be sent.
  2. Go to http://studentadmin.uconn.edu/ with your NetID and password.
  3. Click Self-Service > Student Center > My Academics > Request Official Transcript.
  4. Complete form and click Submit.
If this is the first time logging in, students might have to complete a FERPA waiver or update contact information. If students do not remember their NetID or password, have them visit https://netid.uconn.edu/ where they can find their NetID or reset a forgotten password. Students will not be able to order a transcript if there is a financial hold on the account.
Students attending UConn do not need to request a transcript but do have to speak with an advisor once on campus to move the credit to their degree record. This decision is irreversible.
Finally, please tell students that they should call the UConn ECE office at 860.486.1045 or email at ece@uconn.edu with any questions or problems. We can also help with the credit transfer process if they encounter trouble. 

Deadline for Selecting ECE Courses Is June 30

Students enrolled in ECE courses for 2016-17 who have already registered through the ECE portal (deadline was June 1) are reminded to return to the portal and select their courses from the drop down menu.  Students should make certain to select the teachers assigned to their courses.  Students are advised to use Internet Explorer with a PC and Google Chrome with a Mac.

For Students Enrolled in ECSU Courses at EOS


Students enrolled in ECSU courses at EOSHS for 2017-18 need to complete an application form by June 19.  These ECSU courses are listed below.

ECSU Human Anatomy & Physiology
ECSU Calculus A
ECSU College Algebra & Discrete Math

Unlike ECE courses that are free for EOSHS students simply because of an agreement made between Region 19 and UConn several years ago when the latter forfeited control of the high school to Region 19 (EOS students would - and still do - take ECE courses at no cost), courses available through ECSU are offered at a nominal fee of $25 per credit.  This cost is a fraction of the cost for the same course available on the ECSU campus.  In addition, the textbooks for students are free.

Applications are available in the EOS Guidance Office.

Students should submit by June 19 their completed applications along with a check made payable to EOSHS in the amount corresponding to the number of credits in which one is enrolled.  EOSHS will then pay a lump sum to ECSU.

For Graduating Seniors

Mailing Final Transcripts to Colleges


Students moving on to higher education should expect their final EOS transcripts to be mailed in early July.  It's during the first week of July that the EOS Guidance Department hopes to have transcripts available for mailing.  
If seniors have not already informed the Guidance Department where they will be attending school in 2017-18, they'll need to do so immediately.  Without this information, the Guidance Department will be unable to mail the transcript, the final and necessary step in the matriculation process.

UConn ECE Registration Deadline Nears


The UConn Early College Experience Application deadline is TOMORROW! All students must submit an online application by June 1, 2017 at 11:59 P.M.


2017-18 Schedules Available Soon on Power School


Counselors are currently adjusting 2017-18 course schedules as they respond to students requests (to add and/or drop classes), teacher recommendations, course prerequisites, and changes in the master schedule.  To date, a few changes have been made in the past week to the master schedule and this has prompted changes in some student schedules as well.  In virtually every instance, changes in student schedules resulting from adjustments in the master schedule have simply altered the sequence of courses in the daily schedule (meaning that a class that originally appeared in the B period time slot, for example, may now be in the H period time slot).  Given all of this, student schedules are not available yet for viewing.

Students will be able to view their tentative 2017-18 class schedules on June 2nd at 3:45 pm by logging into their Power School accounts.  Note that these schedules are tentative.

Students may still request changes through the end of this school year and should contact their counselors ASAP if they wish to do so.  Any change made after June 19 will be due to failing final grades in current courses or failure to meet prerequisites in courses scheduled for 2017-18.

Counselors will be available sporadically during the summer and will return on Thursday, August 24th.  Students are encouraged to contact their counselors regarding their availability.

Meanwhile, courses not being offered next year appear below;

Accounting 1B
Accounting 2A
AP Chemistry
Computer Art
Entrepreneurship
Introduction to Management
Music Theory
Perspectives in Music
Sculpture


PSAT Score Reports Mailed Home

Sophomores who completed the PSAT back in April may now access detailed reports of their performance on the test.  These scores first became available on-line and students should have been notified of this by The College Board a few weeks ago.  Since then, the EOS Guidance Department received (this week) paper copies of these reports and will mail home next week the individual reports to students along with their test booklets.


Students should click here to create a College Board account and get their full PSAT score report.  Students may also create a Khan Academy account by clicking here and link it to their College Board account to receive a free, personalized practice for the SAT.  Finally, the College Board provides a tool to learn more about careers and majors.  This tool is called Big Future and is available by clicking here.  

For those who wish to learn more about this new PSAT (that is aligned with the new SAT that was introduced in March 2016), click on the following resources for more information;

For Students Interested in Courses on UConn Campus

With construction of the 2017-18 master schedule near completion, it's time for EOS students interested in taking courses on the UConn campus for the fall semester to contact Doug Melody.  

For now, the most expeditious way to express interest is via email (dmelody@eosmith.org).  The class schedule is available on the UConn website and by clicking here.  Be sure to select Fall 2017 from the drop down menu and to select "Storrs" for the campus.  There is drop down menu for departments as well.  Courses are listed there along with meeting times.  Enrollment numbers are also available.  See below for eligibility criteria.

Eligible students (11th and 12th grade students with academic credentials - strong transcript and combined SAT scores of 1200+ in Critical Reading and Math) may request enrollment in no more than two classes per semester. Decisions on enrollment are made by the Early College Experience Office. EOS students enroll as part-timers. Typically, about 30 students enroll in courses there each semester. 

Final grades earned in courses there appear on both EOS transcripts and UConn transcripts. It should be noted that the grades earned in courses taken on campus are NOT factored into the EOS cumulative GPA.

New Student Loan Interest Rates Posted


The interest rate on new federal student loans will increase from 3.76 percent on undergraduate Direct loans issued for the 2016-17 award year to 4.45 percent for the 2017-18 award year, according to the results of Treasury Department's 10-year note auction held on Wednesday. The interest rates for new graduate Direct loans will increase from 5.31 percent for 2016-17 to 6 percent for 2017-18, and the interest rates for new parent and graduate PLUS loans will increase from 6.31 percent to 7 percent

Where Will Your Degree Take You?


You don't need to be reminded of the high cost of higher education in this day and age.  So much attention has been given to the relative value of a college degree and the specific majors that provide a return on one's investment.  With this thought in mind - that not all college majors are equal - an interactive tool has been constructed that examines 171 college majors.

This interactive tool was developed by the Hamilton Project and draws data from the American Community Service.  Click here to learn more about this and to access the interactive tool.

Colleges With Openings Still Available


The National Association of College Admissions Counselors (NACAC) has published its annual list of colleges with openings still available at this late date.  In other words, these schools have not yet reached their enrollment figures established as benchmarks earlier in the school year.  NACAC makes this list available as a courtesy to its membership.  It may be noteworthy to consider the long-term health of at least some of these institutions as they face continuing declines in enrollment over the next decade due to a shrinking pool of high school graduates across the country.

Click here to find schools on the list.

Summer Opportunity to Earn PE Credit


The Health/Physical Education Department at EOSHS is offering students an opportunity to earn .25 credit (equivalent to one semester of PE) this summer.  This option is available o students who are looking to open space in their schedules during the school year that allows them to take more dual enrollment (ECE) courses.  There is no cost for enrollment in this course.

For more information, contact Mrs. Rowett ASAP at crowett@eosmith.org.

UConn Announces Explore Engineering Program


The University of CT has announced that it will once again offer "Explore Engineering", a five-day program offered in June on the UConn campus allows high school students several opportunities to explore the various fields available in engineering.  There are two sessions scheduled...6/18-6/22 and 6/25-6/29.

College Board Announces Summer SAT Date


The College Board has announced that it will offer the SAT (Along with Subject Tests) on August 26th.  This will be the first time that the SAT will be offered outside of the regular school calendar year.  The registration deadline is in late July.

This test date may make sense, particularly if Saturdays will be occupied in September and October.

For more information, go to The College Board website.


UConn ECE Updates Transfer Credit Database


Below is a message from the UConn ECE Office regarding its updated transfer credit database:

"We’ve completed the update of the Credit Transfer Database, which mines the concurrent enrollment policies of 980 universities and colleges in the nation and predicts the likelihood of ECE credit transfer. The database can be accessed here

We have simplified the rating from 5 stars to 3 stars and have added a map. Just click the state you are interested in and the schools evaluated from that state will pop up! The database is a great resource for student (and parents) to explore the potential for their credit of transferring and to plan for the future. We always tell students to contact their new school directly for most accurate information but the database is a great starting point."

Guaranteed Admissions Program


The following comes from the UConn Admissions website - "The Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP) is an agreement between the Connecticut Community College System and the University of Connecticut, designed for students who enroll in a liberal arts transfer program at one of Connecticut's community colleges to transfer seamlessly to the University of Connecticut without needing to apply. Students who plan to continue their studies to earn a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences; Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources; or Business are guaranteed admission to the University of Connecticut once the associate degree has been earned, appropriate courses have been completed, and minimum grades and requirements for the selected program have been achieved. Advisers from individual community colleges and UConn meet with GAP students throughout their community college careers, assisting in their eventual transition to the University. Students wishing to enroll in GAP must be matriculated in a liberal arts transfer program at a Connecticut community college."

Click here for more information about this attractive and affordable option.

President-to-President Scholarship Opportunity


Related to the (GAP) opportunity outlined above, merit-based scholarships are available to students who participate in the program.  These scholarships cover two years (four semesters) once students transfer from community college to UConn.  It should be emphasized that students must meet the prerequisites for their desired majors and have earned an associate degree in order to be eligible for this merit scholarship.  In addition, students must be nominated for the award by their GAP advisers and approved by their respective community college presidents.  Finally, students must be enrolled on a full-time basis at UConn in order to receive the award.

This is an opportunity worth pursuing if community college is the next place to enroll after graduating from high school.


Timeline for Registering in Courses on UConn Campus


Students interested in registering for courses on the UConn Campus for the fall semester should wait until the middle of May to contact Doug Melody. The 2017-18 master schedule for EOSHS should be constructed by then, so it will be easier to match courses on campus to courses offered at EOS.

Important Information About MCC Courses


Students enrolled in College Career Pathways (CCP) courses, otherwise known as Manchester Community College (MCC) courses at EOSHS, have the option of withdrawing from a CCP course if they wish to exclude the course from their MCC transcripts.  Students MUST complete a withdrawal form, available in the EOS Guidance Office, if they intend to withdraw from the course.  The deadline for withdrawal is April 21st.

Note that withdrawal from a CCP course at this time of year only means that the final grade in the course will not appear on an MCC transcript.  This does NOT mean withdrawal from the course at EOSHS.  Although the final grade will not appear on an MCC transcript, it will appear on an EOSHS transcript.

Students who withdraw from a CCP course after April 21st but before the last day of school will receive a "W" (withdrawal) on their MCC transcripts.

Students who do not withdraw by the last day of classes at EOSHS will receive the grades assigned to them and these grades will appear on their MCC transcripts.  Transcripts are permanent records and cannot be altered.  MCC reports that a grade of "W" on a college transcript may negatively impact eligibility for financial aid.
