Center for Academic and Career Excellence

Welcome to the Center for Academic and Career Excellence (CACE)! CACE is committed to helping students succeed. We offer academic support at no cost. CACE provides both group and one-on-one sessions for a variety of courses. The online/virtual sessions may be led by either a peer leader or supplemental instructor to best suit your preferences and availability. CACE subjects include accounting, computer science, criminal justice, mathematics, science, and writing, among others.

For writing courses, CACE instructors can assist you with brainstorming ideas, revising thesis statements and topic sentences, organizing a paper, learning grammar and punctuation rules, learning to cite sources and formatting papers correctly, and interpreting professors’ comments on graded papers.

For math and science courses, CACE can assist in understanding concepts, working through homework, and preparing for exams.

Again, we encourage you to utilize our free services. You can also connect with us by sending an email to: cace@udc.edu

We look forward to working with you!
