Registration for UConn ECE Courses Closes on June 1

On-line registration continues until June 1st for courses offered by UConn's Early College Experience (ECE) Program  and taken at EOSHS.  Information about the registration process was made available on the May 1 blog post that you can access by clicking here.   
It's important to emphasize that EOS students are now being viewed by the UConn ECE Program as college students and as such the burden of responsibility for enrolling in these courses is in the hands of high school students.
As of today (May 28), several EOS students had still not picked up the application form in the Guidance Office.  Others have completed the form but have not yet started the online registration process.  Still others have started the online application but have not completed it.  Finally, some students have completed the online application but have not submitted it. 
The ECE Office will NOT notify students who have started the process but have not completed it, nor will it notify students if they have failed to submit their forms after having completed it.  Students are responsible for checking the status of their applications.  Only when they receive confirmation that their applications have been submitted will they have completed the first step in the process.
As is stated in a previous blog post and on the ECE web site, students will be able to select their courses once they receive the email indicating that their applications have been approved.  The ECE Office reports that there is about a 5-7 day wait between the time one's application is submitted and approval arrives in an email.
Students who fail to apply by June 1 and wish to add or drop courses after this date will be charged a $25 processing fee for each time a change request is made.  This fee is assessed by the ECE Office.
One final note - students wishing to enroll in Latin 4, Latin 5, Spanish 5, Physics A, or AD Physics must secure a permission number for each of these courses before enrolling online.  Permission numbers will be available on Monday in the Guidance Office.
Contact your counselor for more information.

For updates on the registration process, click here to go directly to the ECE web site registration link.

See below on information that the UConn ECE Office sent this morning.

Ø  Please instruct your students not to use the enrollment instructions contained in the NetID e-mail. These instructions are for matriculated UConn students only.  We are unable to modify this e-mail at this time.  Students will receive a second e-mail with instructions and a link to enroll in their UConn ECE courses.

Ø  If a student has not received their NetID or enrollment e-mail, please have them check their SPAM folder.

Update on Student Schedules for 2014-15

Students should be able to view their 2014-15 course schedules in two weeks.  Stay tuned for more information.

For Students Interested in Courses on UConn Campus

With construction of the 2014-15 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 2014 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.
 Note that students successfully completing AD Calculus this year are automatically eligible for enrollment in UC MATH 2110 in the fall semester.  A section has already been designated for EOS students and the class will meet on Mondays and Wednesday from 6:30-8:30 pm.
