Academic Center for Excellence

The ACE offers several services to enhance student success. Tutors are available for several courses by appointment; however, walk-ins are welcome.  Distance tutoring through video chat is available at the KC Education Centers.  The ACE proctors testing (as allowed by your instructor) for make-up exams and proctored online exams.  Testing accommodations are available to students who receive DSS (Disability Services).  ACE staff can assist students with making connections to services to meet personal and academic issues.  The KC Library, housed in the ACE, provides access to over 17,000 books and a variety of periodicals in support of student research efforts.  It also provides computers and quiet study areas as well as access to information housed in over 500 other libraries.
