Empowering our students is our number one goal. And offering affordable tuition without sacrificing quality is a big part of making that happen. The majority of our students graduate without student loans from their ACE programs, and most pay their
tuition course by course.
Additionally, our online degree programs are accessible to individuals in under-served fields and communities. Working professionals can continue their education and make a difference without having to leave their states or regions.

The following tuition refund policy applies to all students except those who reside in Indiana, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, and Wisconsin. Residents of those states should refer to the state-specific refund schedule below.
Students are monitored during the first week of each course for signs of activity such as downloading readings, posting to discussion boards, submitting assignments, and completing quizzes and tests. Students who do not demonstrate activity in their courses during the first week are administratively withdrawn and the effective day will be the 5th day of the course. Students who are administratively withdrawn from the course for non-participation will receive a 100% tuition refund. This refund does not include the non-refundable Application, and Payment Processing fees and Technology fee. Refunds will be issued within 30 business days.
Participation in courses is the responsibility of the student. If a student remains enrolled in a course after the Drop Date (Friday 11:59 p.m. PST of the first week of the course), he/she will remain enrolled in the course through the end of the term. Students are financially and academically responsible for their enrollment in courses if they are active beyond the first week.
If the student withdraws or is terminated from any program course or program and the College has received any monies for tuition or fees in excess of the student’s obligations, the College will refund such excess to the appropriate party(ies) to eliminate any outstanding balances for any student financial aid received by or with respect to the students account.
ACE reserves the right to modify or discontinue curricula, academic program offerings, published policies, and any other matters addressed in the College Catalog and other publications in the College’s sole discretion and without prior notice to carry out its purposes and objectives.
