ACE (Accelerated College Education) is a cohort program that allows you to complete a two-year set of courses as a unified group of students. As a cohort you have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from your fellow students over the course of your study. The cohort model fosters long-lasting relationships that can extend beyond the classroom.
ACE is designed for working adults who wish to complete 46 units of general education transfer and Associate degree requirements.
The program is made up of a pre-planned set of classes. Students enroll in two short-term classes every eight weeks during the semester, for a total of 10-12 units each semester.
Each week, students attend classes one weeknight and on Saturday at the Natomas Center. No classes are scheduled in the summer.
ACE students have access to all campus services, including the library, computer labs, counseling services, disabled student services, Learning Resource Center, Career Center, Transfer Center, and more. Many of these services can also be found at the Natomas Center.
