UConn Early College Experience Goes Online

After several years of paper registration, the UConn Early College Experience Office is happy to announce that UConn ECE will move to online registration for Fall 2014. For the ECE Office, this is a long-awaited transition that will align with UConn practices and mirror other college processes - such as the Common Application, CSS Profile and FAFSA - that many high school students typically encounter as they launch their post secondary plans.
Some changes will barely be noticeable, while others will require a slightly different approach.  Most of the steps in the process will remain familiar to you if you've already gone through the ECE registration process and the timeline will vary little from the past. New for the 2014-2015 school year, students will be responsible for applying and registering for their approved courses online; either at home or at school.

To assist in the transition, ECE customer support hours will be extended during the registration cycle to help those who need assistance.

 Below is a checklist that students should follow as they complete the registration process;
Select Your Courses
  • Meet with your counselor to choose your ECE courses for 2014-15
  • Obtain all required consent to enroll in courses, including counselor and parent/guardian signatures.
  • Review your completed and signed Consent Form, including double-checking the course information with your counselor.
  • Make a copy of the form for your records.

  • Complete the online application.
  • Upload your signed consent form with your application.  If you are unable to upload the form (you may scan it or take a picture of it before uploading it), contact the helpline at 1.855.382.8323.  Help is available from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday-Friday.
  • Monitor your email daily for a message from UConn confirming your application has been processed and you are ready to enroll.  You will be unable to enroll in your course(s) until your application is processed.  Please allow at least two weeks for your application to be processed during peak periods.  Apply early for quicker processing.
