Value Package for our $110 UExcel Exams

Excelsior College is pleased to announce a special Value Package for our $110 UExcel Exams. This Value Package provides you with a second chance – a free retake registration in case your first attempt at the operating exam is unsuccessful – so long as you purchase the practice examination along with the operating examination registration in the value package bundle. The value package is priced at $145 and covers the registration for the practice exam, the registration for the operating exam, and a free retake of the operating exam (a $110 value!), if needed.

The current option of registering for a UExcel operating Exam alone is still available if you do not wish to register for a corresponding practice exam, and are confident that you are prepared to complete the exam successfully on the first attempt.

The Exam Payment Plan (EPAYPLAN) is not available for the Value Package option.

The value package covers the registration cost of the exams only; if you need to schedule to take the examination again, you will need to arrange your seat fee directly with the approved method of testing.

Excelsior College wants to make your road to success as smooth and attainable as possible, and we hope that by offering this innovative value package, we will help you succeed the first time, and offer a second chance if you don't. We want to offer our students the best in flexibility and convenience!

Excelsior College's Testing Options

Test Preparation Advisory

Test Preparation Advisory

Preparation for Excelsior College® Examinations, though based on independent study, is supported by Excelsior College with a comprehensive set of exam learning resources and services designed to help you succeed.

These learning resources are prepared by Excelsior College so you can be assured that they are current and cover the content you are expected to master for the exams. These resources, and your desire to learn, are usually all that you will need to succeed.

There are test-preparation companies that will offer to help you study for our examinations. Some may imply a relationship with Excelsior College and/or make claims that their products and services are all that you need to prepare for our examinations.

Excelsior College is not affiliated with any test preparation firm and does not endorse the products or services of these companies. No test preparation vendor is authorized to provide admissions counseling or academic advising services, or to collect any payments, on behalf of Excelsior College. Excelsior College does not send authorized representatives to a student's home.

Depending upon your individual learning style and needs, you may consider using the services and products of a test preparation vendor to help you prepare for an Excelsior College Examination. Some students have found such materials beneficial while others have not. The decision to purchase the services and products of any of these vendors is entirely up to you.

Excelsior College does not review the materials provided by test preparation companies for content or compatibility with Excelsior College Examinations.

To help you become a well-informed consumer we suggest that you consider the following before making any purchase decision regarding study materials provided by organizations other than Excelsior College.

Does the company:

  • Clearly articulate that it is an independent business enterprise, separate from Excelsior College, and that it is not a degree granting institution?
  • Clearly inform you that the products and services it provides have not been reviewed, nor are they endorsed, by Excelsior College?
  • Openly indicate that it is not an agent of Excelsior College, that it is not authorized to provide admissions counseling or academic advising regarding Excelsior's degree requirements, and that all its costs and fees are separate from those you will pay to the College?
  • Have a record of unresolved complaints/disputes with consumer protection agencies, nursing boards, attorneys general offices, or other similar organizations?
  • Require clients to commit to long-term, binding contracts to access its products and services?
  • Provide data to substantiate the satisfaction of its clients with its products and services?

We have been made aware of several recent incidents in which a test-preparation firm has contacted an Excelsior College student requesting access to their Excelsior College Examinations ® preparatory materials, including practice exams. Sharing learning resources with a test-preparation firm is a clear violation of the academic honesty code. Students found to have engaged in academic dishonesty at Excelsior College will be subject to disciplinary action.

If you are approached by any individual or third-party about sharing any Excelsior College provided study materials, please contact us at PR (at) excelsior.edu.
