        Summer 2015 ACES selfie photoCongress established the ACES (Achieving in College, Ensuring Success) TRIO Student Support Services Program to help students overcome class, social, academic, and cultural barriers to higher education. The ACES Program is funded by an annual $220,000 grant (for a 5 year cycle) from the U.S Department of Education.

        The ACES Program assists low income, first-generation, and/or disabled students so that they can obtain an Associate's degree and transfer to a four-year institution.

         ACES services focus on a holistic approach to student development and success. Participants will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their educational goals and ultimately obtain a Bachelor's degree. 

        Mt. San Antonio College established ACES in 2010 and successfully completed one grant cycle (5 years). Since ACES met its federally-mandated objectives and received its Prior Experience (PE) points on the grant competition in 2015, the program continues to receive its funding through 2020.
