Undergraduate Tuition and Fees
Excelsior College offers affordable undergraduate degrees that are designed to fit within a working adult's budget.
We offer two enrollment options:
- The Excelsior Course Option—cost-optimized for students who need at least 12 credits to graduate.
- The Multi-Source Option—designed for students who need to take fewer than 12 Excelsior credits.
Visit our Enrollment page for more details on the two enrollment options.
The costs specified below do not apply to military students, family members, or veterans, or to nursing students seeking an associate degree. If you fall into one of these categories, please see the corresponding page in the left navigation to find your tuition and fees.
Contact the financial aid office to learn about fee waivers and discounts.

This is not part of the approved copy - but I want to verify whether or not it should be excluded. If it should stay, should it go on each of the tuition and fees pages?
