Academic Program

A cornerstone of the ACE program is your enrollment in courses specific to your admission. All ACE students will enroll in the following courses their first semester at SCSU:

  • COLL 150: Discovering the College Experience (2 credits)
  • COLL 110: Reading/Study Strategies (2 credits)

The COLL 150 and 110 course credits apply for a total of four SCSU elective credits. These credits will work towards your overall degree at SCSU.  For detailed information on the COLL courses, explore the Undergraduate Bulletin.

In addition to your COLL courses, students will enroll in additional coursework through the Liberal Education Program, pre-major/minor courses and/or developmental coursework as determined by placement testing and ACT scores.


All first year SCSU students are assigned to a professional advisor in the Advising Center. Students who have expressed an interest in a major within the Herberger Business School will be assigned to the Pre-Business Advising Center.

To learn more about course selection and advising at SCSU, please visit the Advising Center.
