A wide spectrum of Mount Mercy students come to the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), but they all have one thing in common; a desire to bring their skills to a new level of excellence. We help underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance, and advanced students excel. Our goal is to help you become a more independent and efficient learner. A friendly and caring place, ACE's services are personalized and flexible. ACE provides some walk-in assistance during office hours and also offers one-on-one and small group guidance with regularly scheduled appointments. ACE is open to all students, free of charge.
