Credits for Teaching

Statement of Policy

Students who have been the sole instructor of a degree-level college course at a regionally accredited college or university will be granted credit for the course toward a Excelsior College degree. The number of credits granted and level of the course will be the same as the credit earned by a student in the course.

Students who have been the sole instructor of a military service school course will be granted credit toward a Excelsior College degree if the course has been evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE), carries a college-level credit recommendation, and is applicable to the degree requirements.

Students who have been the sole instructor of a business or industry course which has been evaluated by ACE College Credit Recommendation Service or National College Credit Recommendation Service (National CCRS) will be granted credit toward an Excelsior College degree if ACE or National CCRS has made a college-level credit recommendation for the course and if it is applicable to the student's degree requirements.

No credit will be awarded for team teaching or teaching only part of a course.
