Review program admissions requirements if you’re interested in our nursing programs or graduate degrees, or to see if you’re eligible for our partnership tuition discounts.
Request that your official transcripts be mailed to us from any of your prior education institutions.
If you plan to use financial aid, submit your FAFSA online using the Excelsior school code: 014251. If you don’t plan to use financial aid, proceed to step 5.
Receive your results. Once your application is complete, you will receive a review of your credits and course approvals via email for the upcoming term. Your admission is valid through the first two 8-week terms from the date of admission. If you have not become an enrolled student after that time, your admission will expire.
Register for your approved courses. To become an enrolled student, you must register for a course starting within the next two 8-week terms after your admission date and remain in your course through the cancellation period (first 15 days of the course).

If you’re looking to continue your education, and you need it to be done in a flexible, innovative way at your own pace and at your own comfort-level style, you cannot do better than Excelsior! They will walk with you along your journey—whether your journey is short or long—and they will encourage you each step of the way.
