The PACE Program
The Pre-Major Advising Connections at Emory Program (PACE) is a multifaceted academic advising support system which serves first-year students until they declare a major before the end of their second year. Prior to their arrival, incoming students are matched with a faculty advisor and peer leaders who help them acclimate to college life, find their passions and plan for academic and career success. The PACE Program provides first-year students with the resources and skills necessary to explore a liberal arts education, identify academic/co-curricular interests, understand College policies, and become familiar with campus resources and opportunities.
All first-year students enroll in a one-credit hour course called PACE 101 in their first semester. The course provides an introduction to the liberal arts at Emory and academic opportunities, introduces students to the Emory community, helps students understand College curriculum, requirements and policies, and offers strategies for managing time and health.
