By The Numbers Vol 2


The percentage of enrolled students who are either active-duty military servicemembers or veterans. While servicemembers and veterans have always been a significant percentage of Excelsior College students, this is the first time in recent years that they represent half of all enrolled students.


The percentage of alumni who are re-enrolled after earning a degree from Excelsior College. In all, more than 13,700 graduates have earned more than one degree from the College.


The amount new graduates can contribute to the Pay It Forward campaign and become contributing members of the Alumni Association. When graduates participate in this campaign, their contributions of $25 or more go to the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund and they help provide support for current students with financial need. Helping those students complete their own degrees is one way our graduates pay it forward.


The number of emails that will be sent to associate degree in nursing students with tips for preparing for the Clinical Performance in Nursing Examination, known as the CPNE. The emails are sent about once a month to give students helpful suggestions for studying for and mastering the comprehensive exam.


The number of people who took the exam Anatomy and Physiology for credit through independent study in the past year. That exam was the one taken most often from among the more than 60 exams the College offers. The 6-credit multiple choice exam corresponds to an introductory, two-semester sequence of anatomy and physiology courses.
