Let's Get Started

Announcement: UExcel Exams and ECE name change

Announcement: UExcel® Exams and ECE name change

Starting Thursday, June 27, 2013, Excelsior College is implementing a new registration process for the eight UExcel® Exams in Calculus, Introduction to Psychology, Political Science, Intro to Sociology, Statistics, College Writing, Spanish Language, and Physics.

You will need to register for UExcel Exams through the Excelsior College website at excelsior.edu/exams, or through your MyExcelsior account. Scheduling of your exam session will still take place through Pearson VUE at pearsonvue.com/excelsior

In addition, Excelsior College Examinations® (ECEs) will be gradually changing in name to UExcel (The exception is the required nursing theory exams for our associate and bachelor degree in nursing programs, which will keep the ECE name). This change will not affect your exam transcripts or prevent you from registering for or taking any upcoming exams.
