Application Instructions

Apply for an alumni award or to be a member of the Alumni Advisory Board.

Instructions, deadlines, and downloadable forms are below.

Each year, the Alumni Advisory Board recognizes alumni based on their academic, professional, personal and community contributions. This is a great way to honor those whose accomplishments can inspire others.  You worked hard to earn your Excelsior degree and deserve to have your accomplishments recognized. Because Excelsior alumni are spread out all over the world, it's unlikely that a graduate will be nominated for an award by someone else. That's why we rely on you to help build our alumni community by letting us know how you've used your degree to advance your career and improve your life.

If you would like to be considered for any of the Excelsior College Alumni Awards, forward:

  • Your resume
  • A brief biography
  • A letter indicating the award you feel qualified to receive, including a 100-word statement explaining why
  • The completed Alumni Award Application Form (PDF)

Deadline for applications is January 15.

 

Applicants for alumni awards must also meet the following conditions:

  • Must be available to attend Commencement to receive the award
  • Cannot be a current member of the faculty or staff
  • Cannot be a member of the current graduating class (preferably, the applicant earned an Excelsior (or Regents) College degree at least three years prior)
  • Cannot be a previous Excelsior (or Regents) award winner of any type
  • Must be available for publicity events, articles, and similar activities

The Alumni Advisory Board is the leadership of your Alumni Association and represents Excelsior's 150,000 graduates to the College on issues that are of interest to our diverse population. If you're an interested alum who is passionate about Excelsior and cares about the future of the College and the value of your degree, then use your personal combination of skills and expertise to give back to Excelsior by applying for the Alumni Advisory Board. Your contribution of thoughts, ideas, and enthusiasm in support of the College will help the Alumni Association develop programs and services valuable to your fellow alumni.
