I have to say that I received an excellent education at Excelsior College. The cost was much cheaper. A co worker finished quicker than I did but paid $60,000.00 and I paid $20,000.00. I learned so much. The teachers were so helpful when you had a question. All in all I probably will return for my MSN.
They are amazing working with the military. They have clear expectations and are willing to accept CLEP as well as DSST examinations which is a huge help time-wise and financially. They were very clear with communication and that has not stopped as I have progressed into a masters program. I have been been accepted to the University of Oregon as an MBA candidate while also pursuing my MBA at excelsior. The advisors are very helpful ensuring that courses at the University of Oregon match their expectations to complete requirements as long as the student in proactive in communicating with their advisors. The advisors are top notch. They respond quickly and let me know exactly what I need to do in order to meet my goals. They have made higher education accesible to me as active and ex military and have let me manage my time at my will while pursuing higher education. Fantastic experiences for both under grad and grad school (in progress). Would 100% reccomend.
I should have graduated in 2016. Unfortunately this school enjoys failing nurses during their final clinical experience so they can make more money when you are forced to pay $2,400 + travel expenses to repeat the test. This things they fail you for are a complete joke! Pulses and blood pressures are 2 examples that they use often. They will say they got a different reading than you and then you fail that individual experience. My recommendation would be to go to a "real" school, you will actually learn there. At Excelsior you have to teach yourself everything cause the teachers do not teach.
My review is based upon my personal experience with this so-called college. Regarding their LPN to RN or Paramedic to RN programs..... Excelsior College does not provide RN students with the necessary tools or support to successfully graduate. Excelsior has been recruiting students for many years with less than accurate facts being posted on their website for the statistics on important issues such as, number of students who actually graduate vs those who enrolled. Also the number of students who actually pass the final exam (CPNE) on their first or subsequent attempts is quite low. Unfortunately it has taken a second class action lawsuit against this college to help bring consumer's attention to being very cautious before entering their ADN programs. It sounds great to be able to do most of the program online, especially for those who are unable to attend a full time RN program locally. However, if your chances of graduation are fraudulently stacked against you, does it make any sense to give them your hard earned money without an eventual degree? Buyer beware. I would not recommend this school to anyone as they place profit above providing support and mentoring towards a successful graduation.
In the beginning is not like Genesis for God seperated light & dark, truth & lies.Ex-LYCR does not know truth from lies! Mandatory CPNE, FCCA classes & fact that we pay for them, hidden in the dark.EX-LYCR's mission is to fail YOU & take YOUR monies!
Enrolled at the encouragement of staff, disappointed by same. Complete waste of time, money, sanity. Lesson learned. On to a brick-and-mortar program where obtaining the degree is guaranteed...regardless of how many times it takes to correct minute mistakes that aren't an indicator of how you will function as a higher-level nurse. No degree, no opportunity, just a lousy paper and encouragement to drop another few grand to play their game. No thanks.
I passed the final nursing requirement called the CPNE but the nurse administering this 3 day exam disagreed and failed me! This college took a lot of my money and time. I do not recommend nursing students attending here. Students fail and the school profits!
I had a very good experience at Excelsior. I thought the Professors were helpful and responded to my emails in a timely manner. If I had problems with the web site, I got timely help. The classes were good but challenging (sometimes very challenging). I had to study hard: I had a lot of late nights studying and doing homework while holding a full time job for which I travelled. I had very good classmates so all of my group projects were enjoyable and the work was shared equitably (not something I can say for other institutions I've attended). The discussion boards in most classes I attended were lively and spirited. I would recommend Excelsior to anyone thinking of attending college, especially online learners. The Liberal Arts program was awesome and allowed me to segue into my Masters degree at another institution.
I did it online, and had a great experience. The guidance counselors were helpful, and the courses I took were educational, informative, and interesting. I would definitely recommend Excelsior College as an option for those looking to attend an online college.
I I received a BS in Liberal Arts from Excelsior College in May 2018. Excelsior College was a wonderful experience for me. I took online classes which enabled me to financially support myself by working a part-time job as a receptionist at a high school. I believe that I received an excellent education from Excelsior College and would recommend it to any student who wants to pursue a college education while simultaneously working.
