Public Service Application Requirements

Before you apply, check that you meet the requirements for the program you want to pursue at Excelsior College.


No special admission requirements.


  • The GRE is not required.
  • You will need to submit an official transcript confirming your completion of a bachelor’s degree at a regionally accredited college or university, or the foreign equivalent. Bachelor’s degrees from non-regionally accredited institutions will be accepted if the school was accredited by an accrediting body listed in the U.S. Department of Education’s Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs at the time you attended.


If you don’t already have one, you’ll be prompted to create a MyExcelsior account when you begin your application. You can save your work and go back to it later if you need to.
