The Academic Skills, Communication and English Support for Success Center (ACESS Center) is a resource primarily supporting freshmen graduate students on their Tianjin Juilliard Journey, no matter whether their first language is English or not. Operating in both physical and virtual spaces spanning the Tianjin Juilliard community, the ACESS Center meets students when and where they want.

Through the ACESS Center English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program, students can participate in weekly personalized English coaching in addition to collaborative learning opportunities like Academic Reading Circles, communities of practice, and interactive workshops to enhance their ability to communicate and think in English. EAP activities are joined with English for Professional Purposes activities aimed at post-graduate work and study, to ensure students achieve academic excellence while in Tianjin and successfully prepare for further professional study or careers.
