Excelsior College Exams

Excelsior College Exams are designed to give individuals an opportunity to demonstrate proficiency in various college-level subjects. Most Excelsior College Exams are objective, consisting of multiple-choice questions. Some are entirely essay exams. The Exams cover work typical of undergraduate-level courses. They examine how well one knows facts and terminology, along with how well one can apply essential concepts and skills. Excelsior College Exams are available up to 6 days a week, 12 hours a day, around the country. Several Excelsior College Exams are accepted for credit at UWGB, but these exams are not administered at UWGB. Contact Excelsior College for additional information:
