This transfer guide is provided for informational purposes only and does not guarantee requirements to complete degree. Requirements will
be based on actual coursework taken by any individual student.

Excelsior puts no limit on the number of credits a student can transfer as long as that of credit meets degree requirements and comes from a
recognized source. Therefore, any credit completed in addition to those pursued with WNC, and that meets a degree requirement, will be
considered for transfer. However, as part of the Excelsior/WNC partnership, students are required to take a minimum of 12 credits in
Excelsior College coursework.

The first step in becoming an Excelsior College student is to apply by submitting an Undergraduate Application, which requires the
inclusion of all official transcripts of prior college credits. Once an application is reviewed, an evaluation summary outlining what is still
needed to complete this degree will be provided to the student. Upon receiving the results of this report, a student may enroll at any time. To
