Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

I took my BSN with Excelsior College and was so impressed with the quality of my education I signed up right away for my MSN. I am on my third Master Prepared Nursing class and am thrilled with the instructors, rigor and future possibilities in my career! I would highly recommend Excelsior College for anyone looking to further their education in any field.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Excelsior College made a huge difference in my life. There are a lot of pros in studying at Excelsior College. This college only offers online degrees. Instructors are very experienced and professional. They work in the field and have first hand experience on what they teach. They dedicate a lot of time to their students and always available to assist. I enjoy taking online courses, because I can work full time and study when I have free time. Instructors and college staff are always there to help. It was an amazing feeling to meet them all during the Commencement Ceremony when I completed my Bachelors Degree. I am now taking classes towards the Masters Degree in Cybersecurity. I am very happy that I found this college and chose the same college to continue with my Masters degree needs.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Scholarship awards are based on FAFSA results and based on my income, I do not qualify for any help. I am a struggling full time working RN expecting my first child and I am paying out of pocket for this degree. One class costs at least $1500. I hold a 3.78 GPA while working full time and maintaining a household. The accessibility of online classes makes it easier to attend school on a full time basis, however, not being in a classroom sometimes makes it hard to understand information that is being delivered. The teachers are pretty quick to respond back to your emails though which is a plus

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

Material is comparable to a 2 year community college's material, difficult but not impossible. Financial aid had odd system, didn't care for it.
