Student Benefits

Participation in The College's Excelsior Program allows high school students:

§

To enrich their high school academic experience by taking college courses at their high school during regular school hours.

§

To be challenged during their junior and senior years in high school experiencing the high academic standards and increased personal responsibility for learning, characteristic of college study.

§

To be provided with additional course options, an alternative to AP or IB courses, and a motivator to engage in a full course of study throughout high school.

§

To prepare for college learning by starting the transition to college level work and build motivation and confidence for continued study.

§

To enhance their college admissions application.

§

To enjoy greater flexibility in college by shortening the time to complete a college degree, or taking a lighter course load; affording more time for internships, dual majors, minors, study abroad, etc.

§

To earn advanced standing once accepted to college.

§

To pay affordable tuition with no additional fees.

§

To available, select College services and enjoy a connection to the college.

§

To earn portable college credits. Since courses offered through the Excelsior Program generate an official transcript through The College, college credits earned can be used toward a degree at The College or transferred to many other colleges/universities around the country, though every college and university has its own policies governing transfer credit. We recommend that students confirm with colleges of interest regarding transfer credit policies.
