Official Transcripts for Excelsior College® Examinations and UExcel® Exams

Statement of Policy

Examinees taking Excelsior College Examinations and UExcel Exams may request an official Excelsior College Examinations transcript be sent to an institution, employer, regulatory board, etc.

Transcripts are released in compliance with the Family Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, with the condition that no third party may be given access to this information without the written consent of the student.

Procedure

Excelsior College issues Official Excelsior College Examinations Transcripts for students who have completed Excelsior College or UExcel Examinations, and who have not been enrolled in an Excelsior College degree program at any time. Students who have enrolled in an Excelsior degree program, a course, or the College’s OneTranscript® service must request an Official Transcript from the Office of Registration and Records.

Examinations Transcripts contain the following fields: student name, address, Excelsior College student identification number, last four digits of the Social Security number (if available), DOB (month and day), examination date, examination catalog number, code number and title, recommended credit hours and exam level, and letter grade. A standard score is also provided for those examinations taken prior to Fall 1999. The Official Examinations Transcript also contains the College's official seal and the signature of the Registrar.

Requesting Examinations Transcripts

There is a fee for Official Examinations Transcripts.

Students may request Official Examinations Transcripts through MyExcelsior (login required), with their MyExcelsior login used as an electronic signature. Signed authorization from the student is required with all other transcript requests, which may be submitted by mail, fax, or scanned email attachment.

Official Examinations Transcripts can be issued either to a third party or directly to a student, and will be mailed in an appropriately annotated sealed envelope. The transcript will include only the examinations that have been completed and whose results have been posted in the student’s academic record.

Official Examinations Transcripts are mailed within five business days of the receipt of a student’s request. If a student needs an Official Examinations Transcript sent sooner, they may request Rush Service. Although this involves an additional fee, Rush Service will guarantee that the Examinations Transcript will be sent within three working days from receipt of the request and payment. Note: In order for Rush Service to be guaranteed, the request must be properly completed and full payment of the Examinations Transcript and Rush Service fee must be received with the student’s request.

Excelsior College reserves the right to place a financial hold on the academic records of students who have not met their financial obligations to the College. A financial hold will result in the suspension of all College services, including the issuing of transcripts.
