About Excelsior College
Excelsior College is an accredited, nonprofit distance learning institution that focuses on removing obstacles to the educational goals of adult learners. Founded in 1971 and located in Albany, NY, Excelsior is a proven leader in the assessment and validation of student knowledge. It offers efficient and affordable access to degree completion through multiple avenues: its own online courses and college-level proficiency examinations, and the acceptance in transfer of credit from other colleges and universities as well as recognized corporate and military training programs. Excelsior College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
Here are some reasons why Excelsior College could be the right choice for you . . .
Excelsior is a great option if you’re in the military, or if you are a veteran. In 2009, Excelsior College was again named a top military-friendly college by Military Advanced Education magazine (MAE), which gives added commendation to Excelsior College for its “notable veterans support programs.” This is the third year that Excelsior has won recognition from MAE, a journal of higher education for service members. Nearly 30 percent of Excelsior’s 30,000 enrolled students are members of the military, and the College offers degree programs specifically designed for military students and veterans wishing to transfer military education credits.
It’s a top choice for nursing too. In fact, Excelsior College is America’s largest nursing school, with 10 percent of all American nursing students enrolled at the school.
Excelsior is a world leader in distance education. Like all StraighterLine’s Partner Colleges, the emphasis is on top-quality online instruction, coupled with caring support by faculty and staff.
