UConn - Early College Experience Program (formerly known as the Cooperative Program)

UConn Early College Experience (ECE) provides academically motivated students with the opportunity to take university courses while still in high school. These challenging courses allow students to preview college work, build confidence in their readiness for college, and earn college credits that provide both an academic and a financial head-start on a college degree.

UConn ECE instructors, who are high school teachers certified as adjunct professors by UConn faculty, create a classroom environment fostering independent learning, creativity and critical thinking – all pivotal for success in college. Berlin High School offers UConn ECE courses in Biology, Physics and Chemistry. To support rigorous learning, University of Connecticut library resources are available to all UConn ECE students.

UConn ECE students must successfully complete the course with a grade of C or above in order to receive University credit. University credits are highly transferable to other colleges and universities.

Students are charged a reduced fee, per credit. For additional program information visit:
