UConn Early College Experience

UConn Early College Experience is a program that allows students to take college courses while still in high school. Courses taken through UConn ECE are equivalent to the course provided at UConn. This is a great opportunity for high school students to experience college level work and earn college credit. The Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture offers several ECE courses in Sustainable Plant and Soil Systems. Visit UConn ECE for more information.

Check to see if your high school is a Partner School and offers Sustainable Plant and Soil Systems courses. If you're a high schooler interested in plant science and would like to get a head start, our courses may be for you!
