JCC, Excelsior update transfer agreement

Jamestown Community College and Excelsior College have updated an agreement that streamlines the transfer of credits into Excelsior’s programs.

The agreement guarantees JCC students acceptance into their choice of Excelsior degree program if they meet Excelsior’s admission standards. Students must also transfer with a JCC associate degree, and also hold an active RN license if applying for a bachelor’s degree in nursing program. Students can transfer approximately 90 JCC credits toward meeting Excelsior degree requirements.

Excelsior College is an accredited, private, non-profit institution that focuses on the needs of working adults. Its primary mission is to increase access to a college degree for adult learners by removing obstacles to their educational goals. Founded in 1971 and located in Albany, it is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
