The Accelerated College Education (ACE) program at the Natomas Center puts you on the fast track toward a Bachelor's degree!

ACE  is designed for working adults who wish to complete 46 units of general education transfer and Associate degree requirements. The program is made up of a pre-planned set of classes. Students enroll in two short-term classes every eight weeks during the semester, for a total of 10-12 units each semester. Each week, students attend classes one weeknight and on Saturday at the Natomas Center. No classes are scheduled in the summer.

ACE is a cohort program that allows you to complete a two-year set of courses as a unified group of students. As a cohort you have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from your fellow students over the course of your study.  The cohort model fosters long-lasting relationships that can extend beyond the classroom.
