Creating Opportunities for Diversity in Education (CODE)

Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman and group

Designed to support underrepresented minority and low-income students, CODE provides resources for every aspect of succeeding as a college student.

If you’re feeling a little hesitant about college, CODE is here to help. CODE taps into services across our campuses and the community to make sure new college students — and their families — get a great start at ECTC. Plus, CODE is a great way to connect with other students. You’ll be a part of cohort that supports each other throughout your time at ECTC.

Academic and Career Excellence (ACE)

Real support to accomplish your education and career goals.

The Academic and Career Excellence program, or ACE, gives students personalized assistance with all aspects of college. ACE addresses various academic and social challenges through intrusive academic advising and coaching, peer connection, career connection, exposure to cultural activities, and meeting basic needs. The intensive case management and personalized wraparound services that ACE provides will assist participants in overcoming academic and non-academic barriers, increasing academic preparation, building career and transfer pathways, and persistence.

Find out how an ACE Success Coach can help you with everything from career exploration, to classroom success, to overcoming non-academic challenges.

Let's get started and ACE it!
