Achieving Collegiate Excellence
The ACE program has one overarching goal: to provide personalized support via academic coaching to eligible students that need to meet a specific cGPA to maintain an institutional scholarship by helping them achieve their academic goals, fulfill their academic potential and provide them with New York Tech resources to succeed.
Academic Coaching is the one-on-one process of helping students with academic skills, providing opportunities for formal self-assessment, sharing effective strategies, and creating a plan for success. Through coaching, students are motivated to improve their academic performance, actively practice new skills and effectively navigate appropriate resources that will help them succeed, both academically and personally.
Identify your goals and what you want to accomplish each semester.
Together with your coach, establish a plan of action and success.
Maintain your accountability and make progress towards your success.
Achieving Collegiate Excellence (ACE)
ACE is designed to provide academic support to eligible undergraduate students who need to raise their cumulative GPA in order to meet scholarship requirements. Students are provided with individualized support and encouraged to explore their academic and personal goals to improve barriers to their academic success via an Academic Coach. ACE is a year-long program, therefore, students must participate in the Fall and Spring semesters to successfully complete ACE.
ACE eligibility is based on a student's cGPA, full-time enrollment status, and total number of credits completed. Eligible students must also meet SAP (Satisfactory Academic Progress) and must currently receive an institutional scholarship. For more information or to see if you are eligible, contact Financial Aid or contact the ACE Coordinator. Eligible students are invited via email and must register for the program.
