Affordable and assessable depending on your needs, very user friendly.
This college seems to be very helpful for adults who want to continue their education.
This is a great school to deal with. The advisers will help guide you through your path and help achieve your goals. Being a 100% online school the experience is different but well worth the energy, what you put in is what you will get out of it. I can not say enough about the school. If it was not for them I would never have been able to go back and work toward my degree. When the day comes, I will be a proud alumni.
None it is a great online college. I have just started going and it seems like the staff are very helpful and courteous. I hope to have success at Ecelsior and achieve my RN degree!. So I think with the help of the school I will be able to achieve my dreams

No matter what do not give up, find something you love, and go all in. Put every ounce of your energy into achieving the goals you set once you've discovered your passion. Nothing will ever be handed to you expect to work hard.
My classmates at Excelsior College are extremly varied and diverse. Majority of the enrolled students are online so my fellow classmates are form all 50 states and beyond. Some are just out of high school and others have lots of real world experience.
Excellent external degree programs and distance learning programs for working adults. The focus is on the students ability to tailor their program and learning to their personal needs.
I love being able to finish school online. I work full time and this form of education fits with my schedule.
Being a strictly online campus however, they offer support groups, on line communities and the professors are available via email, on line chats ect if needed.
Again, being a new student, I am still figuring this out as well. Being an online student can be very isolating if you allow it. I tend to focus on my course and the time frame I need to complete my work .
Going back to school, I am learning new things, meeting new people, facing new challenges, and obtaining new skills that will increase my work-force and personal value. My children and friends are proud of the work that I am doing, which helps inspire them and me to do our best and never give up on dreams.
I really have not had a bad experience at Excelsior College thus far. The staff has been very helpful when needed and in a timely manner. If I have to say one bad thing is that Excelsior is a distant learning type of college and I work from home under the guidance of instructors and advisors. There are times when I miss the classroom education.
A driven individual.
Excelsior College is an online school, meaning it requires a great amount of self discipline as you work on your own time and mostly by yourself. A student who cannot manage their time wisely and procrastinates often will not do well here. Students who are not familiar with how to navigate the internet and how tuse use basic computer programs, such as Word or Powerpoint, mayd struggle as well. Many of the classes involve weekly short-answer questions, forum discussion between classmates, and papers or essays; a student who does not enjoy writing may want to consider a different college.
Excelsior college allows you to reach your full poential . Excelsior College is dedicated to working with important groups like our active military and returning students. It is important to recognize that many students today are part time students that are working full time. Excelsior College is a great school that offers flexibility and encouragement to work toward the very difficult goal of pursuing a degree while working full time.
This school allows you to do what you need to do and also find time for work and family.
One stereotype is that it's mainly a college for people in the military, but there is a very diverse student body from working moms to single young college students. A variety of ethnic groups attend and the male to female ratio seems pretty even. Though I think many of the males are military men. Overall, its a pretty good cross section of people in the student body.
Classes are intense and highly informative. Lots of homework and essays.
I am thankful for Excelsior college. I am able to work and attend college within the convenience of my home.
Before coming to this school, I wished I had known how many upper level credits were needed for graduation. Excelsior College offers many programs to their students, from business, to nursing, to liberal arts degrees. I am in liberal studies; Excelsior College offers a liberal studies option that requires 6 upper level credits and a major option that requires 18 upper level credits within one subject area. But both require a total of 30 levels of upper level credit at the junior and senior level. This was very confusing to me when I first came to the school.
That the school is in New York and I live out of state. It's hard to remain focused on continuing to take courses while working full time and having the duties of a family.
