"I highly recommend ACE to my friends and family because I had an excellent experience. I completed my Ed.D. in Educational Leadership in under three years by taking extra classes. The dissertation writing process was smooth and there was support every step of the way which I greatly appreciated. My dissertation chair, Dr. Evans, was absolutely amazing! She was always available to answer questions and reassured me that WE would complete this degree. The rest of the staff at ACE were always friendly and willing to support me and answer questions. Emails replies were often received within a day or two and all questions were answered by staff from various departments. Feedback by instructors on assignments was useful, timely, and applicable. I have several friends who have enrolled in the Ed.D. program and their experiences have been positive as well. Excellent value for your money, you receive high quality instruction for a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere."

"Same grading rubric for all classes. The statistics class begins at the elementary level and finishes at a very advanced level within 10 weeks! No practice at all. Lectures and videos are short and are not related with the work. Do not waste your time. What I learned with ACE that it is better to wait to apply yearly to your state university, and you will pay about the same price for a reputable school."

"Having earned both my Bachelor and Master's Degree from different reputable brick and mortar schools, I was not really interested in online degrees. However, when a friend told me about American College of Education doctoral degree programs, I realized that ACE offered what I was looking for in leadership and in education. The content of my courses was current and relevant to my work as an educator and could be infused in my everyday practice. The work at ACE is not cakewalk, so working and studying full time at ACE was not the easiest undertaking. However, developing priorities and following a structured schedule made it manageable. When the challenge was hardest, particularly during the dissertation process, my chair and other members of my dissertation committee were very supportive. The team provided prompt constructive which helped in moving my work along a timeline that did not take forever. If you are considering graduate study, ACE is an excellent choice because of the affordability, the quality and relevance of the courses and the level of support that you are likely to get from the professors and the team assigned to guide you through your studies."

"ACE is a good school, especially if you put in the effort to learn. It tries to balance value for the student with low cost. Most assignments provide the ability to learn something relevant in a low stress environment. I've only had 1 bad instructor, most range from helpful to very helpful. I have offered feedback on several occasions and have felt listened too, which speaks to a student-centric climate. The doctoral program has been reorganized, it sounds like for the better but it is too early to tell. I am not sure if I would attend this school if I wanted to get a degree and teach at a university, but for a professional who is already employed, it is a good fit."

"The Ed.D. program is incredibly organized and all assignments are relevant and interesting. The faculty members are quick to respond to question, and they are incredibly helpful in providing assistance when needed. Everything is well organized, and I am impressed with the professionalism of all staff and faculty. Faculty members take their time to make sure that you are effectively learning the curriculum. The program is also affordable, and you pay as you go."

"Employers will turn you away if ACE is on your resume! Happening to me now! You get what you pay for. This ended up being a degree mill. Students write useless papers, get no feedback, earn A's and graduate... HUGE regrets I will never get my money back. This school PURCHASED their accreditation from a bankrupt school called Barat College. Google It! ... and attend a real school instead."
