Academic Resources

During your studies at Miami, there will be moments when you need to utilize additional resources to ensure high-quality academic work. Several campus resources are available to you at no cost as a student. Each office is specialized to provide a specific service, so review the options carefully.

If you are a current student of the ACE program, several resources are available for you including English conversation programs outside of class and additional academic support from the ACE staff and instructors.

If you are a former student of the ACE program and have now fully matriculated as a degree-seeking student at Miami, the ACE staff and faculty are still available to you as resources. There are additional academic support programs for past students of ACE as well.

The ACE program does offer some courses for fully matriculated students to continue practicing and improving English language proficiency. For more information on what courses are currently being offered, please contact the ACE office.

For more information on what programs and events are being offered currently to ACE and former ACE students, take a look at American Culture & English Program, or contact the ACE staff through the email or stop by the office to say hi!
