Selection and Review Process

After you complete the application process, ACE will keep your information on file and contact you for availability if an upcoming review requires your area of expertise. We will also contact you periodically for updates to your profile.

ACE creates specialized teams for each review based on the required academic areas, the balance between new and experienced reviewers, diversity in the representation of the type of higher education institution, the distance from the site where the review takes place, and the overall composition of the team.

ACE pays all evaluators a fixed fee. For onsite reviews, ACE reimburses approved travel expenses.
