ELEVATE: The Campaign for Student Scholarships

To honor Excelsior’s 50 years of delivering on our promise to provide an affordable education and to meet student where they are, academically and geographically, we are raising funds for student scholarships. Your contribution, in any amount, will reduce financial obstacles faced by adult learners just like you.
