Excelsior College Consortium

HCC has developed a consortium agreement with Excelsior College in Albany, NY, providing an avenue for HCC students to complete degrees at both the associate and bachelor levels. Excelsior College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the same body that accredits HCC. Students may transfer up to 90 credits earned at HCC to Excelsior, and may be eligible for discounted rates on Excelsior’s tuition and fees. Excelsior provides generous transfer benefits to students who have earned college credits through traditional and nontraditional avenues, including classroom instruction, military training and experience, employment experience, and CLEP, DSST, and Excelsior College exams (all of which are administered through HCC’s Test Center). Students can complete the bachelor’s degree programs through a combination of online classes and credit by examination.
