Registration for MCC Courses


Registration Process for MCC Courses

College Career Pathways (CCP) is a collaborative program between area high schools and Manchester Community College (MCC).  It's designed to allow high school students to sample the challenge of college-level work and earn college credits while attending high school.  The CCP courses meet the same level of challenge taught at the college level and, in fact, are taught by EOS teachers who have been certified by MCC.  Students earn "dual credit" (credits from their high school and credits from MCC).

Below is a list of courses offered at EOSHS that are eligible for MCC credits. Registration for credit remains open.  The registration deadline is December 30, even for courses that students will complete in the second semester.  In order to be eligible to earn college credits, students MUST complete the application.

Accounting 1A (MCC ACC 115)
Human Anatomy & Physiology A (MCC BIO 115)
Intro to Criminal Justice (MCC CJS 101)

Quantitative Literacy (MCC MAT 109)

Financial Aid Workshop for Parents 

EOS Lecture Hall

Tuesday, December 8 @ 7:00 PM


Carolyn Karno will be the featured speaker at this year's annual financial aid workshop for parents.  This workshop is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, December 8th at 7:00 PM in the EOSHS lecture hall.  It is expected to last for about 90 minutes.  Although designed primarily for parents of current 12th graders who are planning to cover costs for higher education, this workshop may also be helpful for ALL parents interested in getting a preview of what's to come.

The presenter is a seasoned financial aid professional with a wide range of higher education experience. Before starting her own consulting business, Karno was the Manager of College Planning and Financial Aid at the Connecticut Student Loan Foundation and was instrumental in starting their “Investing in Futures” Resource Center.  Her work with families included assisting them with financial aid forms, deciphering college award letters, and counseling them as to how much they could realistically afford to spend.

She is also well known throughout the school counselor community for her college planning and financial aid workshops. Last year she provided more than thirty workshops for parents, students, and educational professionals. Prior to joining the Connecticut Student Loan Foundation, she was the Communications and Outreach Director for the GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) initiative at the Connecticut Department of Higher Education.

             UConn Courses On Campus for Second Semester


Students interested in taking a course on the UConn campus during the second semester should contact Doug Melody.  Preliminary registration has begun, although formal registration will be completed in mid-January.

           NEW SAT FORMAT AND NCAA ELIGIBILITY


From the NCAA Clearinghouse:

If a student-athlete takes the current SAT before March 2016 and then takes the redesigned SAT at a later date, the NCAA Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the current and redesigned SAT when determining the student-athlete's initial eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the redesigned SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the current SAT, a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.
