The ACE Program


The Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) program at Millersville University serves individuals who wish to pursue academic interests while also fulfilling work and/or family responsibilities. The ACE program enables students to reach educational goals or obtain a degree by attending college on a full-time or part-time basis through evening and weekend classes. Courses are available both on campus and at several off-campus sites.

ACE students may complete the following undergraduate degree programs by attending classes only evenings and weekends:

  • Business Administration

  • (Accounting, Management, Marketing)
  • English
  • History
  • Industrial Technology

  • (CADD, Electronics, General, Graphic Communications, Manufacturing, Mechanical)
  • Occupational Safety and Hygiene Management
Degrees can be obtained in other majors through a combination of daytime and evening courses. Minors are available in Psychology and Occupational Safety through evening-only studies.

Admission to ACE. ACE is an ideal program for the adult who didnít have strong academic interests in high school or who tried college but didnít continue due to motivational or personal reasons. The only required admission credential is a diploma and official transcript from an approved secondary school, a Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma or a General Education Development (GED) certificate.

ACE Students. Applicants who meet admissions criteria for regular admission will be admitted to the ACE program with the full privileges of degree students. Applicants who do not meet established admissions criteria may pursue a college degree on a part-time basis with provisional degree status. Provisional status ends when students successfully complete 12 credits with a 2.0 average. Students who recently were asked to leave a college due to poor academic performance may not be admitted to the ACE program. New students may begin the admission process in the spring, fall or summer semesters. ACE application forms are submitted to the Millersville University Office of Admissions with a one-time application fee of $25.

Students who are granted admission will be assigned academic advisers in their major fields. Those admitted provisionally, or who applied for admission to elementary education, will be listed as undeclared and assigned an undeclared adviser temporarily. ACE students are urged to meet with advisers well before the beginning of the semester to determine course selections.
