Accelerated College Education (ACE)

ACE is a concurrent enrollment program for high school juniors and seniors who have a strong academic background (i.e., cumulative “B” high school average or higher). The program is nationally accredited through the National Alliance for Concurrent Enrollment Partnership (NACEP) and is one of only 57 colleges in the country to have achieved this status.

Students take college level courses at their home school and earn Corning Community College (CCC) credits at a substantially reduced tuition cost. These credits generate a CCC transcript and transfer directly to Corning Community College and over 300 colleges nationwide.

Students must meet the prerequisites for the courses, as described in the course section of this catalog. If a course requires eligibility to enroll in ENGL 1010 and the student has not taken that course, he or she must demonstrate proficiency through basic skills assessments in reading and writing.
