Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I highly recommend this school for Master level programs. I earned my M.A. Degree while committed to my career and while committed to earning my degree; in other words, I spent long hours involved in both. There were few days that I remember getting only an hour to two of sleep because I was completing a paper or studying for an exam while working full-time. You will have to do the work. You will have to write your own papers. You will have to study for your exams. If you want a program that is one of the best values for your money...Go with ACE.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Think twice before attending this school. I thought it sounded great to attend school online and signed up from overseas. After one week, I found the course work and adjusting to their computer system was going to be taxing. I asked the teacher for assistance but was put on hold and had to wait to find out the school was not for me. I asked for a refund as quickly as I could and was denied. Less than 1 week in school and my money was held. The school admits there is a challenge on coming on board and learning their system. Yet they make no concessions in work load, adjustment or refunds.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2022

Don't do it. You do 5 times more work then other doctoral programs. You spend more time trying to figure out what to do then you spend getting it done. The materials they provide you are irrelevant to the assignments. If you do plan on attending be ready to spend 50-60 hour a week writing papers and discussions. You will not get any instruction - just confusing directions on how to complete assignments. The masters program at ACE was great but the Doctoral program is a lot of busy work with little learning.

Unrealistic expectations for full time working students. Several articles to read and post by Wednesday, replay to two other peers, and a final project and test by the end of the week, every week for 5 straight weeks. Also, you should already know APA format before you begin.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2018

First rate professors: Dr. E. is amazing! Lots of work if you are not organized. Strict deadlines. Grades are always in on the Thursday after the assignments are due. Each week, expect to write at least one paper, complete a discussion board, watch 4-5 presentations, read 4-5 peer reviewed journal articles, and take a quiz or final exam. The school offers lots of assistance/help, but I did not use of the services, so I cannot comment on them.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The program at American College of Education can be challenging if you are not self-motivated. You are required to write numerous papers, participate in discussions, and take quizzes and tests. There I are courses that require peer reviews, research, and inquiry with current administration. You get out of the program what you put in. Yes, its time consuming, and at times, challenging. It is a huge commitment that is worth the challenge.

Degree: Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language/ESL Language Instructor
Graduation Year: 2018

Expectations are unrealistic. 4 papers and a final exam ALL for one class is ridiculous and an untrainable goal for full time workers. DO NOT enroll in this program!!! Online classes are very difficult and there was no training on all of the requirements. The instructor expected you to learn APA format in 2 days. I am not happy and feel I wasted my money.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2023

If you do not already know what your dissertation topic will be, then this is not the school for you. The ACE doctorate is a completely DIY program. If you ask the instructors for guidance they will only say "pick whatever topic you want." Also, you will not receive helpful feedback on assignments. If you ask for clarification, it will not be given. But on the plus side, if you know your topic and are a self-starter, then this program is the obvious choice--it's so much less expensive than other online programs and you can miss the entire point of an assignment and still get 100% as long as you don't miss any deadlines (there is NO late work accepted). Sadly, I did not have a solid topic in mind before I started the program, so the entire experience has been frustrating, hence the 1-star rating.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018

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. I enjoyed my time at ACE!
