Excelsior is great for what it is. It is a low residency school, meaning you are not required to take a certain number of courses through them. If you are someone who has racked up a lot of college credits but are missing the degree, Excelsior is for you. Also you can take advantage of credit by exam as there is no limit to number of credits accepted through this and the college has several it offers for upper-level courses. The online classes offered by the school are your standard blackboard style with needing to post in discussion threads and a few assignments to submit. Use sights like degreeforum.net for advice on how to rack up credits to transfer in. After graduating I was able to get promoted at work as I just needed to have a finished Bachelor's degree. Also I was able to get into two graduate programs since then and my Excelsior education served me well in those programs.
Review Excelsior College
This college is an online school. This type of schooling is very convenient but it is also difficult to stay focused and determined without the classroom setting. I wish the college would add some inexpensive and interactive prep courses to help, assist with on-line students. This type of education is very expensive and at times I find myself having to wait on enrolling to the next class or test due to the costs.
As an excelsior student you will gain an educational opportunity in a flexible and individualized manner that accommodates your work and family life schedule despite gaining the assets in expanding your knowledge at your own pace both domestic and international.
It is very flexible in the path of their service.
Thank you for giving me the support to earn this award to help me to meet the need of expanding my knowledge that will benefit all around me more especially to the ones that I am humble to serve.
Thank you very much
