Students should take these two courses during their first semester at college. Students need to keep in mind that they only have one year to successfully complete the courses with a C- or better. Taking the courses in the first semester allows students the chance to retake a course if there is a situation that requires them to do so. The courses you take with ACE will appear on your college transcript, because they have earned you four SCSU elective credits.
ACE students are full members of the SCSU campus community and have the opportunity for participation in all SCSU activities, services, and programs. For example, students can compete in and attend varsity sporting events, take any SCSU course, and join SCSU clubs/student organizations.
The ACE program has a limited number of seats available for new students transitioning into the University. Students who complete their admission steps will be admitted into ACE and SCSU on a space available basis.
No. Student information is kept confidential.
COLL 150 courses are designed for ACE students. Your general education courses will be with all SCSU students. Some sections of selected courses have space reserved for ACE students.
You will be meet for each course twice a week for a 50 minute class period.
Students cannot directly apply to ACE. The Admissions Office identifies students to be a part of the program, and then the First Year & Transition Programs staff makes the final admission decision for all ACE students. Students who are not admitted into SCSU through the ACE program will be recommended for admission to our Community College Connection Program at St Cloud Technical & Community College.
