The Center for Academic Excellence embodies Pace University’s commitment to your academic success.  That means that, together, our programs, offices, and resources form a comprehensive academic support network that can assist you as you find your ideal path and pursue your degree.   Whether guiding you through your academic and social transition to college, helping you clarify career goals and explore majors, providing tutoring that helps you meet the challenges of college study, or providing unique leadership and service opportunities, the CAE is an important part of your experience here at Pace.

The Office of First Year Experience (FYE) welcomes all new Pace freshmen to the University and helps them make the transition to college.  By providing academic advisement for students in their first semester, enhancing their membership in the academic community through UNV 101, and introducing them to the rich life of their campus, the Office of FYE helps students create a solid foundation for their future at Pace.

Advising Center for Exploring Majors (ACEM) assists students who are in the process of exploring majors and minors.  Students meet individually with an adviser to discuss their interests, learn about different majors and minors at Pace, and decide on a course of study that meets their interests, talents, and life goals.

The Tutoring Center helps students achieve their academic goals by offering individualized and small group tutoring in a wide range of subjects and upper and lower-division courses.  The walk-in services are free to all Pace students.

The Challenge to Achievement at Pace Program (CAP) gives students who demonstrate academic promise the opportunity to become part of the university community.   Small classes, advisement, workshops and structured academic support help students recognize and reach their academic potential.
