Accelerated College Education (ACE) is a program designed for adult students juggling work, family, and life. We have designed your educational path to consist of two classes at a time, every 8 weeks. You will get a one week break in between classes and then start your next set of 8 weeks classes. A traditional semester is 17 weeks in length, you’ll start and stop at the same time as traditional students and receive the same holiday breaks!
