Excelsior admissions counselors can help you, whether you are ready to enroll in an online degree program, register for an exam, start a financial aid application, explore your transfer credit options, apply your military benefits, or simply learn more about what it's like to be an Excelsior College student.

First Steps

Once you've explored all that Excelsior College and other colleges have to offer, you're ready to move forward. Use our calculating tools to estimate your costs before completing your free application for financial aid (FAFSA). Talk with an admissions advisor for an evaluation of your transfer credits. Ask whatever you need to before you apply.
