Achieving Carolina Excellence (ACE)

Due to COVID restrictions, ACE will not be held in its traditional format until your safety can be ensured. The safety and well-being of everyone at Carolina are our top priority. Therefore, we are offering ACE as a series of sessions held over the Fall semester, instead of the traditional two-day experience.

ACE provides incoming students with the tools needed to ensure their academic, social and emotional success at Carolina 

This year, ACE will not be exclusively for incoming first-year and transfer students, but open to all Carolina undergraduate students.

  • Gain direct access to campus resources, support services and other matriculated students
