Academic  Center for Excellence (ACE)

The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) provides students with a central resource for information about the academic programs, student support services, and other opportunities available at CSU. The Center assists students in exploring various majors and refers them, when appropriate, to related campus resources such as the Career Center and the Counseling Center. Advisors in the Academic Center for Excellence work closely with advisors in the academic departments to provide specialized advising to transfer students, first-year students who have not selected their majors, and returning students who are considering changes in their majors. The faculty and staff of the Academic Center for Excellence are supportive of students and encourage them to make responsible and informed decisions about their programs of study. The Office of Tutorial Services is located in the Academic Center for Excellence and provides free tutorial assistance for learning support courses in reading and writing and also core curriculum courses not served by the Math and Science Learning Center or the Writing Center. Free seminars and workshops provide information and strategies that assist students in making satisfactory progress in their chosen fields of study.
