With You From Start To Finish
Get a head start on your college degree! When you pass UExcel exams, you earn college credit on an official transcript from Excelsior College, a private, non-profit college. This regionally accredited college is fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
A Regionally Accredited College
Excelsior College is a regionally accredited college and a recognized leader in adult learning. This higher learning institution has partnered with Pearson, the global education leader, to offer UExcel, a robust and affordable Credit-by-Examination (CBE) program, to help you earn college credits and work toward your goal of a college degree. As regional accreditation is considered more prestigious and strenuous than national accreditation, credit on a transcript earned from a regionally accredited institution is more likely to be accepted by other institutions.
What makes Excelsior College different from other non-profit colleges is that Excelsior offers busy students around the world the advantage of both earning credit at a distance and applying previously earned college-level credit toward degree or certificate programs.
