Developmental/Remedial Courses

Statement of Policy

Excelsior College does not offer developmental or remedial courses. This policy governs transfer of developmental and remedial credits.

Excelsior College awards transfer credit only for academic study that carries regular college course-level credit that can be used to satisfy degree requirements at the institution where completed. Courses that are designated as developmental or remedial will not be listed on Status Reports or transcripts. A written statement from the institution will be required to have these courses considered for credit. This statement, on official college letterhead, must be sent directly to Excelsior College by the issuing institution. In instances where the coursework is clearly developmental or remedial, the College reserves the right to withhold credit.

Courses that are designated as developmental or remedial will not be eligible for financial aid funding.
