I finally completed my Bachelor's Degree at Excelsior after many years away from school. I am totally satisfied with my experience at Excelsior. The professors were truly excellent, the curriculum was rigorous and engaging. My fellow online classmates were also very collaborative and engaged. I would get my Master's at Excelsior if they offered a graduate program of interest. Overall from start to finish, great experience!

Excelsior is great for online learning with a variety of programs to choose from. Easy to apply, transfer credits, and earn credits from professional experiences and licensees. Excelsior is military friendly and works around the demands placed on service members. A great place to earn a degree when juggling life responsibilities.
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 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.
