Help Students Demonstrate Their Mastery of Introductory Course Material
UExcel® offers you an excellent way to help your most motivated students receive credit for prior knowledge and make the most of their time and tuition dollars. UExcel is a leading Credit-by-Examination program created by two global leaders in distance learning: Excelsior College, a regionally accredited institution of higher learning; and Pearson, a leader in academic products and services.
Your institution can help students take advantage of UExcel examinations in several ways: grant transfer credit, waive lower-level courses and fulfill admission
requirements for incoming, first-year students.
Wide Variety of Subjects
UExcel examinations test for college-level knowledge in a range of disciplines, from Calculus and Physics to Spanish and Political Science. Just as in a traditional educational setting, yet at a much cheaper cost, students who take UExcel exams receive a letter grade. Each passed exam earns from 3 – 6 credits. The grade and the recommended credit are recorded on an official Excelsior College transcript.
Rigorously Evaluated Exams
The exams, which test learning outcomes for popular introductory level college courses, are created by experienced faculty from esteemed institutions around the country in conjunction with Excelsior College experts in educational testing. The exams are subjected to rigorous statistical analysis and standard-setting procedures, including an evaluation by the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT), which has provided recommendations for UExcel examinations.
Students Are Prepared For More Challenging Courses
With the UExcel program, students can demonstrate they’ve mastered introductory material. By taking and passing the introductory-level exams, they will prove their readiness for more challenging material and higher level courses at their chosen college or university.
Most Cost-Efficient Path to A Degree
Using the UExcel program is a cost-efficient way for students to stretch tuition dollars, because exams are less expensive than even the most affordable college courses. Students who pass UExcel exams earn college credit that can be transferred to the institution of their choice.
