CT State Community College (CT State) Tunxis will hold an Open House on November 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the 600 & 700 Buildings.

All are welcome for tours of campus and to learn about academic programs, financial aid, admissions, and student services. Faculty and staff will be available to answer questions.

Free college through PACT: Pledge to Advance Connecticut is still available to graduates of Connecticut’s high schools who have never attended college before. Accessing PACT and any financial aid starts with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov. PACT is not based on household income; all students who plan on attending full- or part-time should complete the FAFSA so they can access PACT, even if they do not think they will quality for need-based aid. Additional information is available at ctstate.edu/pact.
