Excelsior College helps busy working adults earn the degrees they need with flexible distance education programs. The College, formerly Regents College, was founded in 1971 on the fundamental philosophy that what you know is more important than where or how you learned it. We recognize that adult learners can attain college-level knowledge in many ways. Our name, which means "Ever Upward," depicts how, with over 100,000 graduates, we propel students just like you toward their goals.
