UExcel® Credit By Exam
When you’re looking for extra flexibility, UExcel exams are an alternative to traditional coursework and let you earn credit on your own schedule using online proctoring.
You don’t have to enroll in a degree program to take UExcel exams, and you can earn credit for exams in business, liberal arts, science, technology, and more.
Save time and money with credit by exam
UExcel exams cost significantly less than tuition for equivalent course credits. Motivated students who set and stay on track with their study goals can save thousands of dollars by taking UExcel exams—compare $110 for one 3-credit exam with the average $900 in-state tuition for one 3-credit course.
Also, since you can schedule UExcel exams as soon as you’re ready, you may be able to earn some of your credits sooner by exam than by coursework. If you’re already familiar with a subject, you may only need a few weeks to refresh or round out your knowledge before scheduling your test.
About Online Proctoring
Nearly all of the exams Excelsior College accepts for credit are available with convenient, secure online proctoring which means you can earn credit when it’s convenient for you, rather than having to schedule your test at an in-person testing center.*
