Seems like these types of exams are going the way of the dinosaur. CSU Global was retiring their SSA exams. They had retired several of them while I was attending. Excelsior probably isn't making enough $$$ on these exams. Many of the courses listed are readily available as ACE credits elsewhere. I can see Excelsior becoming like ESC everyday. They definitely are NOT nearly as transfer easy as they once were. They're kind of a pain to work with honestly.

Wow, not good. I never took UExcel exams but they definitely have some great options. I have a few young adults but I wish I could get them to take the nursing exams before the school does away with them. Sigh...

Ouch, there goes the cheap alternative upper level credits that was not available elsewhere... some of those upper level are just $110+exam fee. Oh well, Excelsior is most likely wanting people to take courses from them instead of taking these exams for credit. Sad...

There are cheaper alternatives to most of the UExcel exams, and the school probably didn't have many students willing to pay the higher costs now that there are options available. This will be a bummer for those using UExcel as cheap RA/graded credit, but for alt credit in general I think most of these exams (but not all, unfortunately) are duplicated elsewhere.

Wow! I've long been done with undergraduate education, but I think I will register for the physics exam since there are no CBE options other than tests made available to high school students.
