Get International College Credit!
Be Prepared for American Universities
These entry-level university exams let you study independently and earn American academic credit that you can transfer to the school of your choice. Demonstrate your knowledge and show that you are ready for the demands of studying university-level work in the English language. You’ll earn credit now for introductory courses and then move into more advanced classes at your chosen institution.
Choose From Subjects That Interest You
Choose an exam from a wide variety of introductory courses, including Calculus, Physics, Statistics, and College Writing. Helpful preparation tools are suggested by UExcel that include free content guides, recommended textbooks, free recommended open courseware, and online practice tests. Study and prepare at your own pace and then take the exam at an international Pearson VUE test center. After taking the exam, you will immediately receive a letter grade score. This grade will go on an Excelsior College transcript. If you are not pleased with your grade, you can even retake your test after a 60-day waiting period.
