Partner Testimonials

"I was extremely busy and knew Excelsior would work around my schedule, which would help me when I'm traveling for business. The credentials for my place of employment are based on a scale, and my Excelsior degree has helped me accelerate my career by about five years."

- Diane Hoke, AHCAP employee

"I chose Excelsior because it transferred my military education and experience to credit hours. I was able to take different style courses and especially liked the CD-ROM courses. The instructors were helpful and got back to me quickly with answers to my inquiries. Personally, it helped me feel better about myself and has given me more firepower when it comes to trying to get my kids to go to college."

- Mark Wykes, Booz Allen Hamilton employee

"I have nothing but good things to relay about my experiences with Excelsior. The coursework was thought-provoking and thorough, and there was excellent communication between the students and the staff."

"My BS in the Liberal Arts has given me the tools and confidence to pursue a Master of Arts degree at the University of Southern California."

- Ambrose S. Dawson, Defense Acquisition University member

"With Excelsior College I was able to work full time and get my RN license. Subsequently I became an RN in direct care and then case manager, making almost twice what I had been making as an LVN at the same facility."

- Delanie McElroy, National Latino Peace Officers member

"Excelsior was the only college that had an ABET nuclear program that was easy to start after I got out of the Navy. The program was challenging and had great instructors.

"Now I can apply to get a master's degree, and I'm confident that my Excelsior degree and training will help me in my future career. And, because I don't have to get another bachelor's degree, I'll have more time to spend with my family."

- Daniel Fox, Newport News Shipbuilding employee

"My company referred me to Excelsior College, and it was a wonderful experience for me. Excelsior had the most helpful and understanding professors of any college I've ever taken classes with, and they accepted all my credits."

"Excelsior is great!"

- Sandra S. Anthney, Tyson Foods employee

About Excelsior College

Accredited, Private, Nonprofit

Excelsior College—a Middle States accredited, private, nonprofit institution—is nontraditional in all the best ways. For more than 40 years, our innovative model has helped adult students achieve traditional markers of success:

  • Advanced degrees
  • Better career prospects
  • Higher earning potential
  • More rewarding lives

Few working adults can fit a traditional college experience into a schedule that's already jam-packed with family, work, and community responsibilities. Excelsior College addresses those challenges with a computer-based classroom model that lets students take courses where and when it makes sense for them.

Our Center for Educational Measurement offers credit by exam for students who want to transfer college level credit either to your or our college by passing one of our proficiency exams. All Excelsior College Exams (ECEs) and UExcel exams have been evaluated and recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education College Credit Recommendation Service. Our exams help students fulfill course requirements, prerequisites, and save money. Colleges often use our exams to help alleviate overcrowded classrooms or limited schedules by offering students the option to fulfill general education requirements by exam. Excelsior College offers materials to help students prepare for the exams and all exams are given at secure Pearson testing centers across the globe. Visit our Credit by Exam section for a comprehensive list of exams and more information.

More than 146,000 working adults have graduated from Excelsior College. We empower students to create their own educational opportunities, achieve their goals, and improve their lives.
