Hurricanes Harvey and Irma

For Students Affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma

Our primary concern for students in areas affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and those serving as first responders, is their safety. The College is working to ensure these students have options during this challenging time.

Students and those serving who are registered for courses, and have been impacted by the hurricanes, should contact the College to discuss their options.

If you reside in Florida, Louisiana, or Texas and have a payment plan

Excelsior College has approved the deferment of the September 20 and October 5 payments for those students who reside in Florida, Louisiana, or Texas. We are working with Nelnet to defer the payments. Student Accounting is available to answer questions or concerns.
