ACE is proud to announce the Fall 2014 Workshop schedule, featuring sessions on academic excellence, career prep, financial literacy, grad school prep, and reflection.

Taking the GRE sometime soon?

Half off the cost of the GRE - here's how!

Many ACE Scholars are eligible for 50% off the cost of one GRE Test Registration (one General GRE Test and/or one Subject Test). For details, please read about the process here (links to Financial Aid's GRE Fee Reduction Program site). Please note, Financial Aid does not set the guidelines for this waiver, so if you aren't eligible, there are no appeal options. Also, expect the waiver processing to take some time, so you should start the process well in advance!
