ACE Advising

ACE provides primary and supplemental academic advising to program participants throughout their enrollment in the program. The ACE advisor works exclusively with ACE scholars to assist with course selection, major support, registration, degree audits, co-curricular engagement support, grade monitoring to ensure timely completion of a bachelor's degree, among other services. Through academic advising, students are set up for success before classes even begin.  

The ACE program is committed to assisting participants with a successful transition to Loyola and supporting overall personal well-being. ACE staff provides assistance to students on various aspects of college life including stress management, addressing family/friend concerns, and challenges related to commuting during the students' time at Loyola.

To set up an advising appointment, go to Navigate, which serves as the university system to schedule appointments with your advisor/counselor.
