ACE has been the best experience that I have had as a student. I finished my Master in Teaching English Learners in 15 months. I had a perfect GPA until my second to last class. That class was my only disappointment. However, I passed it with an 87. I graduated with a 3.90. I highly recommend ACE.

DO NOT ENROLL. I wish I found these reviews before enrolling. The lack of feedback is accurate. If you value your time, then do not waste it here! Faculty is awful. Zero feedback is given. If you expect any of your questions to get answered, forget it!!! If they do respond, its like they didn't actually read the email. Points majorly reduced on assignments without any explanation or justification. Want an explanation of how to do something? Want to know the length requirements? Sorry, that information...

Do yourself a favor and find a reputable school who actually cares about their students and not just making money. While it is the cheapest grad program my colleagues and I could find, we all agree, it’s not worth the money. The last course I took the professor was on vacation the first week of a five week course. My questions and emails were not returned. It was quite embarrassing. The workload is outrageous and not meant for a working adults.

I am surprised to see less-than-stellar reviews full of complaints. This school has fast-paced program; however, the workload each week is manageable for me (I have one full-time job, as well as two part-time jobs). I'm even involved in community activities, and I can still find time every day to complete my work. The professor in my current course is attentive, helpful, and provides useful feedback. If someone doesn't have a productive routine and does not have writing skills at the college/university... Read More

Overall, some of the courses in the program were very interesting and taught me a lot. Some were instead just review and busy work of things I had already learned previously. I liked that everything was online and fairly accelerated...classes every 6 weeks. I was able to submit all of my work easily and earned an A in all of my classes. Unlike some of the other reviews state, I never had any issues with my professors getting back to me when I had questions. They were always very responsive and fast.... Read More

Great Experience!

ACE offers a curriculum which is both challenging and engaging. Courses are accelerated, each is 5 weeks for the Master's program and 10 weeks for the doctoral program. Accelerated courses are NOT a red flag, most graduate programs offer 5, 8 or 10 week courses. I know this because I have worked in higher education for several years. Student support services are readily available to students--whenever I sent an email with any question, I typically received a response within hours. The best part about... Read More

Red Flag! Red Flag! $8,500.00 for a masters Degree that, so far, not one employer recognizes. ACE has one of the highest faculty/staff turn around in the country. Additionally, ACE purchased a small accredited university when their application for regional accreditation was turned down. The University wants your money. The education you receive is sub par. Most classes are only 5 weeks in length. You get what you pay for. Good luck.

If you are looking for an easy and cheap masters, this it. If you have a teaching job and want to move up the pay scale, you won't regret going with ACE. They are accredited, and the program goes fast. By the end, I was knocking out 3 credit classes at about 10 hours of work each class. Not each credit, each class. If you actually want to learn, I have no idea if this program is any good. I never read the assigned readings or took the assignments seriously. All that matters is you write enough, use...

I obtained my Masters degree from ACE (in Education with a specialization in TESOL) while working as a full time instructor in South Korea. I loved the 5 week structure, to echo the sentiments from the earlier review. The classwork itself was challenging but not impossible in my opinion. It's definitely not one of those schools where you can submit anything and get a 100. Granted some professors were more picky than others, but I felt the grading was pretty fair overall. Not having to purchase physical... Read More
