A convenient, accredited, time-tested way to earn credit at Excelsior College.

You may be able to earn college-level credit in certain subject areas by successfully completing exams that show what you know. It's called Credit by Examination. This is a convenient, accredited, and time-tested way to use independent study to earn credits toward your degree at Excelsior College. Here's how. Choose an Excelsior-approved exam, and register online. You have six months to study and take the exam at a test center. Excelsior provides a ton of resources, free content guides, practice exams, 24/7 library with more materials, supportive staff and study groups, through My Excelsior Community. You get all you need from Excelsior. Sure, credit by exam is different than sitting in a classroom, but it's college learning that fits my tough schedule at work and home. And being able to test out of eight-week courses also saves me time and money. I learned that many Excelsior graduates earned college credit this way. Excelsior is a leader in adult education, so I trust them, and I respect them for giving me real solutions for my future.
