Once credits are posted to the official transcript, they cannot be removed.

The Excelsior University OneTranscript® is a service to students not enrolled in Excelsior University who want to consolidate their academic records for employment or educational purposes.

Prior to Spring 2023, D grades were accepted in transfer.
If a OneTranscript® student enrolls in an Excelsior University degree program, they will be under the degree program policies in effect upon admission. All course work listed on the OneTranscript® will be evaluated according to their applicability toward the degree program the student enrolls in. Not all credits listed on the OneTranscript® will apply toward a degree program (example: external D grades are not applicable to Excelsior University degrees).
