Community College Partners

Many students enroll in community colleges as a springboard toward a bachelor's degree. Articulation agreements with Excelsior College allow these graduates to maximize the use of earned community college credits toward their educational goal. Excelsior accepts up to 105 community college credits plus credits from other approved sources toward completion of our bachelor's degrees.

Excelsior College is excited to extend the same discounted rates students receive, to all employees of our community college partners.

Academic Partners

Students can transfer many of the college credits they may have already earned toward an associate, bachelor's, or master's degree.

Academic partnerships are leading the way toward affordable and accessible education.
