I have NO idea what everyone is whining and complaining about! I graduate with my Masters in July and ACE has been the BEST experience for me. I work full time and I have managed to get straight As in my program so far. Usually, the work is manageable and just takes a bit of discipline. Ive had some late nights and some frustrations, but there has never been anything assigned to me that I could not accomplish. The instructors have been very knowledgeable and supportive. Ive had such an amazing experience at ACE that I decided to go for my Doctorate in January. And no, I do not work for this institution. I am baffled by some of the people saying that the workload is too much for adults that work full time. I have not found that to be true. Attending this school will be the best decision you make for your sanity and career. As long as you have some self discipline and common sense, youll excel at this school.
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.
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.
Phenomenal! Great professors, wonderful curriculum, true value. I recommend this school without reservation. Halfway through I got two job offers and a promotion. Best choice I ever made. Im continuing with the EdD in August 2018. I LOVED my EdS program. They CARED about me!
I am halfway through my program at ACE, and find it to be both extremely useful, and affordable. The lessons have honestly had a great impact on my teaching and make me think about how I can improve my teaching/classroom. The professors have been helpful and provide feedback each week through discussions, or for my weekly research papers. I am not sure about the other programs, but the M.Ed programs are very helpful, and although challenging, I am able to do the work along with working full time in Shanghai. This is an extremely beneficial program for anyone living abroad who is trying to seek a M.Ed.
If you need a totally accessible, friendly, amazing degree, this is the place. I have never had instructors that were so helpful, interested, and knowledgeable in one place. The work is balanced. I love that we had no books to purchase,and we used current everything! The price cannot be beat, especially for what you receive in return. Look no further for a great place for your next degree. ACE is the best!
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 ACE is that I will graduating debt free! However, I must admit, it isn't all rainbows and sunshine. I experienced a few minor inconveniences while enrolled at ACE: for example, the university only offers one commencement ceremony per year (and it's in July), this is upsetting because I'll graduate 7 months before the ceremony; another downfall is that most people are not familiar with the university; the final set back I experienced was that all the rules are not clearly communicated--I had an issue submitting a payment and was forced to pay a $100 late fee, despite never making a late payment and sending multiple emails explaining the difficulty that I had experienced attempting to pay. Apparently, I failed to follow a policy I was never aware of. In any case, for those of you who think that earning a degree online is somehow less work than attending a brick and mortar institution--you are sadly mistaken. At ACE, students must submit a paper, complete a quiz and an additional assignment, each week, every week. I have friends who attended graduate schools at more well known, prestigious universities who would complete 3-5 assignments during an entire course. My thoughts are all over the place and for that I apologize; however, I hope this provides insight to anyone who's considering ACE. Overall, I would recommend it.
I highly recommend the American College of Education if a person is looking for a challenging, online, degree program that certainly is affordable. Instructors were connected and available. No hidden degree requirements; instructional pacing was straight forward. Great experience.....Thank You ACE!
It was a great experience. I have referred three colleagues to ACE, they are also having an amazing experience in learning and growing. ACE was a great learning environment I highly recommend ACE. Every professor was engaged, positive and an asset to my learning and development.
I took online classes here and they were so easy and convenient. I was able to do things on my time, and make sure that I met my due dates. The due dates are all outlined on the class page prior to the semester, so you can work ahead and easily plan in order to make sure that you are able to complete all of the work and that your life won't get in the way. Perfect for people who are busy in their careers.
