Excelsior

Offered through Excelsior College in cooperation with StraighterLine, UExcel uses the concept of credit-by-examination (CBE) to help you graduate sooner—and save money in the process. Instead of taking a full-length college course that could include lectures, labs, and multiple exams, you simply study for and take an Excelsior test to earn credit on your college transcript. Some students have actually earned associate's or bachelor's degrees just by taking UExcel exams.

What You Get with UExcel

When you buy UExcel, you get more than just a test—you get an entire study program, which you’ll need because the UExcel exams aren't easy. In fact, it takes weeks to prepare for UExcel, although each test itself is only 120-180 minutes long.

Students have been taking UExcel for over 40 years, and more than 2,000 colleges and universities accept UExcel for credit. And unlike CLEP and DSST tests, your UExcel score comes from a regionally accredited college: Excelsior College.

Credits may transfer to more than 1,800 colleges that participate in ACE CREDIT or any college that chooses to accept them.
