Excelsior Transparency

Transparency at Excelsior

Excelsior College is the founder and a member of The Presidents' Forum, a consortium of colleges and universities that are regionally accredited, serve adult students, and provide education at a distance. Consortium members joined together in a project called Transparency by Design, which was intended to provide information that would help students make informed decisions about their educational investment. When the project concluded, Excelsior College chose to continue providing data on important topics such as student and alumni satisfaction, student engagement, and the costs of degree programs.
