Excelsior College Reviews
Review Excelsior College
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.
The school is convenient, low-cost, and has an excellent faculty. Both advisers and professors are extremely helpful. Students have options to do both 15 and 8 week courses, allowing each student to work at a pace that best suits them. The courses are extremely interesting and engaging.
So far my experience has been wonderful. I've had a lot of questions, but they've been there every step of the way!
