Tunxis Community College will hold an Open House on November 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the 600 & 700 Buildings.

All are welcome to tour the campus and learn about Tunxis degree programs, financial aid and scholarships, admissions, and student services. Tunxis faculty, staff and students 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 ct.edu/pact.

To view a map of campus and register in advance, visit tunxis.edu/openhouse. Walk-in visitors are also welcome.

Tunxis offers more than 70 associate degree and certificate programs that prepare students for transfer to bachelor’s degree programs and employment in areas with industry need. Tunxis transfer programs offer guaranteed admission to the CT State Universities, Charter Oak State College and University of Connecticut. Transfer agreements with private colleges and universities are also available.

An accelerated winter session runs December 28-January 13, and spring semester classes begin January 20. For more information or assistance, email [email protected], or call 860.773.1500.
