Excelsior College Partners with Kentucky Community and Technical College System & More Than 70 Campuses

Albany, NY — Excelsior College announced an educational partnership with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), and now all graduates of KCTCS as well as staff and faculty are eligible for discounted tuition and fees. KCTCS includes 16 colleges and more than 70 campuses with the mission of improving the quality of life and employability of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

“We are excited to partner with this diverse college system to provide pathways for its graduates and its employees seeking to complete their bachelor’s or master’s degree,” stated James N. Baldwin, JD, EdD, president of Excelsior College.

“KCTCS makes every effort to create lifelong learning opportunities for our graduates, faculty, and staff,” said Kris Williams, PhD, chancellor of KCTCS. “Our partnership with Excelsior College will provide additional access to higher education to help achieve their educational goals of advanced degrees, advance their careers, and improve their lives.”

Excelsior College is excited to share information about this new partnership and the advantages of Excelsior’s 3+1 Bachelor’s Completion Program with the KCTC System. The 3+1 program helps reduce the cost of earning a bachelor’s degree by allowing students to earn additional credit at KCTCS after completing their associate degree and then, in consultation with Excelsior’s academic advisors, seamlessly transfer into one of Excelsior’s bachelor’s degree programs to earn the remaining 30 credits toward their degree.

Excelsior College has helped more than 177,000 adults earn degrees since its founding more than 45 years ago. To learn more about this partnership, visit the Kentucky Community and Technical College partner page.
