About Accelerated College Entrance
Welcome to the Accelerated College Entrance (ACE) Program
There are two components to ACE: an On-Campus Program (Sac State-based) and an Off-Campus Program (High School-based).
The On-Campus Program allows students to attend courses on the Sacramento State campus. The Off-Campus Program enables select area high schools, in partnership with Sacramento State academic departments, to offer university level course work at their own school site.
The ACE Program allows qualified high school students (11th and 12th grade only) to enroll in classes at Sacramento State and earn university credits while completing regular high school studies.
Through ACE, advanced high school students can study subject matter which may not otherwise be available to them. Qualified students may take courses at Sacramento State provided that they maintain good academic standing with both the University and their high schools. Credits earned while participating in ACE may be applied to degree programs at Sacramento State or may be transferred to other universities.
Students interested in competing in Academic Decathalon are eligible for ACE credit. Please contact your ACA/DECA coordinator with your high school.
