Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What if I registered for an event and cannot make it?

A: Please call or email the office as soon as you know you will not be attending so others can take your spot.


Q: What if I need a ride?

A: Speak with your liaison or other members of ACE to see about carpooling to events.


Q: What if I do not want to attend one of these four colleges, do I still have to go to the event on campus?

A: The whole premise of ACE is that you attend programs to help you learn about many different aspects of searching, applying and attending college. The more often you are on any college campus, the more information you will have to help you make decisions about your college future. Each event covers a wide variety of topics, not just information specific to that particular college.


Q: I am in 10th grade and would like to join ACE, is it too late?

A: No, it is not too late. See your high school guidance counselor or your ACE liaison for a new student commitment form.


Q: I am a senior and have attended several ACE events over the past three years. Will attending ACE events as a senior still help?

A: YES!! As you head into college you will still have questions and tasks you are uncertain of or need some clarification. Many Regional Institutes are designed to help all students learn about the steps related to enrolling in and transitioning into college.


Q: Are ACE events free for students?

A: Yes. All ACE events are free to students and families.


Q: How will I know what ACE events are available?

A: Three times a year a newsletter will be mailed home with a calendar and registration information. There is also an up to date calendar on the ACE website: www.cortland.edu/ACE


Q: What if I do not have a B average?

A: We still encourage you to join ACE. The expectation is that you will work toward a B average so you will have the most number of choices when applying to college and scholarships. You also must have a B average to qualify for the Outstanding Senior Award.
