The Academic Center for Excellent Students (A.C.E.S.) is geared towards helping students excel academically. The center is designed to provide educational services to UDC-CC students. Although the main function of ACES is to provide face-to-face tutoring, we offer other resources such as computers for academic and school-related use, and academic workshops. ACES provides a safe, distraction-free learning environment for all UDC-CC students.
Visit ACES, where we are committed to your success!
