STUDENT ELIGIBILITY

Academically sound high school students are eligible to take college courses. Students must meet all prerequisites for each course as described in the Handbook. If a course requires eligibility to enroll in ENGL 1010 (College Composition I), students must demonstrate proficiency through a means approved by the Department of English or they need to complete the basic skills assessment in reading and writing through an Accuplacer assessment. 

REGISTRATION PROCESS

  • Students enroll in ACE courses with their guidance counselor in the spring. Students will complete a Student Information Form and submit these to the Office of Academic Outreach by the required due date. These information sheets can be obtained from their guidance office and/or mailed to the students during the summer.
  • The ACE Coordinator along with the administration at the high schools will submit a Course Offering Form indicating the courses, times, and instructors for the upcoming academic year.
  • The ACE Coordinator will submit class rosters for each course.
  • Students are required to obtain a Certificate of Residency from their county of residence. The Office of Academic Outreach will assist students in filing the required form for the Certificate. If students are absent on the day the Office of Academic Outreach visits, they will receive a Certificate in their billing to complete.
  • A College Representative visits high schools to explain the ACE process to students and collect residency applications.

WITHDRAWING FROM CLASS

  • If students do not wish to take the ACE course for college credit, they will be required to sign in to their MyCCC account or contact the Office of Academic Outreach by calling 607-962-9533 by  November 15, 2019, for the Fall Semester and April 10, 2020, for the Spring semester to drop the course without incurring a transcript record of their enrollment.

COST

  • Tuition – Free for New York State and PA ACE students.
  • Additional tuition charge for students in New York State who have not submitted proof of residency is  $130.00 per credit hour

STUDENT CONDUCT / ACADEMIC HONESTY

The rules of the host high school should be followed in non-academic behavioral misconduct situations.  However, in cases involving academic misconduct, particularly academic dishonesty, the College’s regulations should prevail.

ATTENDANCE

Success in courses is directly related to attendance. Regular attendance in class and laboratory sessions is expected of all students; however, instructors determine student attendance requirements for their courses. These attendance requirements, along with their relationship to final grades, should be clearly stated in the course syllabus. Attendance will only be considered in the final grade of a student when individual participation is deemed necessary for meeting course objectives.

CERTIFICATE OF RESIDENCY

If a New York State student does not have a valid Certificate of Residence on file or if he or she does not qualify for New York State residency, he or she will be billed an additional Out-of-State Tuition Charge. If a student qualifies for New York State residency but has not yet applied for a certificate, he or she needs to complete the Certificate of Residence form. Instructions for completion are printed on the backside of the form. Notaries are available in the Enrollment Advisement Center. A College representative may visit the school for assistance with this form. Students should check with their guidance office for more information. Upon completion of the residency form, students may deduct the Out-of-State tuition charge from the total due on the bill. The Certificate of Residence must be completed and returned to Student Accounts by the billing due date.

Tuition for the ACE Program is Free. An additional tuition charge for students in NYS who have not submitted proof of residency is $130.00 per credit hour. 

HONOR SOCIETY: PHI THETA KAPPA

ACE students are eligible to become members of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. Eligibility is based on completion of 12 credit hours of associate degree course work and a cumulative 3.5 GPA. It is organized on three levels. 1) local (student becomes a member at a two-year college), 2) regional (29 regions nationwide with information at www.ptk.org), and 3) international (more than two million members and 1,200 chapters located worldwide.)
