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 adviser and peer leaders who help them acclimate to college life, find their passions and plan for academic and career success. The Office for Undergraduate Education (OUE) and Campus life supplement this advising team and provide educational panels, programs and sessions throughout the first year. These informational meetings serve to further connect students to campus resources and help them identify avenues for academic and personal growth. First-year students enroll in PACE 101 and receive one semester hour of academic credit toward their Emory College degree for successfully completing the program. The grading basis for the course is satisfactory/unsatisfactory.
