The staff members of ACE endeavor to support the academic goals of all Benedictine students set forth by the faculty. Please contact an ACE staff member with any questions or to request a service such as a classroom presentation or workshop.
Our Learning Specialists track all of their appointments with students and can provide confirmation to instructors that their students have received help in math (Mariam Flattum), science (Carol Fendrick) or writing (Anne Marie Smith). These confirmations can meet course or extra credit requirements. The Learning Specialists are also available to provide customized classroom presentations and workshops upon request. The ACE Center offers other forms of academic support for students and faculty.
Accommodation staff are available for consultation about students with academic accommodations. We are also available to help instructors make online resources accessible to all. Here are two resources for instructors:

Administrative Withdrawal and Drop Policy*
Intent of the Policy: The primary intent of the Administrative Drop Policy is to ensure full enrollment in classes in which demand for seats exceeds supply. The purpose is to free seats held by non-attending students in such classes so that students who wish to take the class may be able to do so.
Drop for Non-Attendance: Undergraduate students may be dropped from a class for non-attendance by a departmental administrative drop by the end of the first week of the class.
*This policy does not apply to adult undergraduate and graduate courses offered by the School of Graduate, Adult and Professional Education.
For additional information, please visit the Registrars' homepage and review the Administrative Drop Policy or contact the Office of the Registrar at (630) 829-6349.
