A.C.E. Program - Tuition & Policies
The courses are offered at a discounted rate of $130 per credit ($390 for a 3 credit course). This is approximately an 85-percent savings. Bills may be seen through the student’s My LIU account and are due when they are posted. Students who decide after registering not to take a course for college credit must follow the Drop Policy or they remain registered for the course and remain responsible for full tuition and any accrued fees. Students with an unpaid balance from the fall semester cannot register for the spring semester.
Registration for Fall 2010
All registration forms must be signed by student and parent/guardian. Student and parent/guardian retain the pink copy. Registrations without signatures cannot be processed. All registrations must be received in the A.C.E. Office from high schools by October 1. Only registrations sent by participating high schools will be processed. Registrations sent by individuals are not processed.
Dropping a course for college credit is a formal process with specific paperwork. All completed Drop forms must be received at the A.C.E. Office before the Drop Dates: November 15 for fall semester and full year courses, April 15 for spring semester courses. After these dates no refunds are made and no drops are processed except for students who drop all their high school classes. See your high school coordinator to get the process started. High school coordinators are listed along with A.C.E. Schools by clicking here.
The thirty dollar application fee is a one-time, non-refundable fee used to process the student’s application. It is not applicable to tuition.
Change of Grade
Changing a grade for college credit is a formal process with paperwork. The change of grade requires the A.C.E. teacher to complete the form including an explanation for the change. It requires the signature of the A.C.E. teacher and of the principal. The A.C.E. Change of Grade is then reviewed by the A.C.E. Review Committee before it may be processed. Changes of grade for fall semester courses must be received on or before February 15 immediately following the fall semester in which the student took the class. Changes of grade for spring semester courses and for full-year courses must be received in the A.C.E. Office on or before July 15 immediately following the academic year in which the student took the class. Requests to change a grade received after these dates cannot be processed.
