The ACE (Accelerated Content-Based English) Program is a fast-track EAP program for students with strong academic backgrounds. Participants in this program will complete two levels in one semester (Levels 3 and 4, or 5 and 6). Also, ACE students take a regular college credit class, such as a computer science or psychology class, thereby allowing them to get a head start on their college career at MDC. Admission into this program is on a competitive basis and requires a separate ACE Program application, as well as an interview and a writing sample. Students who choose this option will normally take 15-16 credits including their regular college credit class.
