ACE Critical Reading for Success

This program will be facilitated on-campus.


ACE Critical Reading for Success focuses on strengthening the reading skills and strategies of incoming freshman students to maximize their learning experience and academic performance at UIC. The course's overall goal is to prepare students to successfully meet the reading challenges they will face in their UIC coursework. This 5-week, in-person course employs readings in a variety of subject areas where first- and second-year students are likely to take courses. Reading-related note-taking and test-taking are also addressed. Students are expected to attend classes on campus, carefully complete all reading assignments, and actively participate in class discussions of the readings and related matters. The course has no cost, carries no graduation credit, and involves no formal evaluation of students. However, class attendance and course completion will be reported to Summer College.
