Adult College Express (ACE)
Fast-Track Degree Completion for Busy Adults
Why Get a College Degree?
Many adults return to school because they are looking for a career change, a promotion, or to update their job skills and further their education. Others may have experienced a life-changing event, such as job loss, divorce, or relocation. Whatever the reason, a college degree will give you a competitive advantage in the job market and provide you the skills and knowledge valued by employers.
Why Adult College Express (ACE) at Motlow?
The ACE program is an adult centered (25 and older) cohort-based program. Cohort refers to adults who begin the program together and support each other throughout the path to earn an Associate of Science in General Studies. Most classes meet one night per week normally on Tuesday nights. Degree completion is possible in just 24 months. ACE encourages the development of study groups to help reinforce learning. Motlow ACE cohort students are more successful in retention, graduation, and four-year institution transfer than non-cohort-based students. The ACE Program is an accelerated program intended for highly motivated, independent learners. A mandatory attendance policy is strictly enforced.
