    Log in on Click on register button at top of page (3rd from left at top). Scroll down to "exam registration" and sign up for your test. Same process to sign up for practice exams. Good luck.

    I think the problem is that you are looking to schedule classes. There aren't classes for the LPN-ASN/RN degree (hence why no financial aid is available). Some of the pre-req courses give you the option of course or exam. You register for the exam, download the content guide to prepare for the exam. You'll receive an ATT from Excelsior to schedule your exam at Pearson Vue. You do your own studying and preparation to get ready to take the exam. There are also practice exams that you can register for (for a fee) that will give you a good idea of what material and the format of the challenge exams.

    The only class you will have to register for is the two part FCCA but you won't be eligible until you complete all of the theory exams.

    The exam content guide provides your "syllabus," with suggested readings from various texts, as well a few example exam questions. It doesn't contain study materials. Finding those materials is up to you. A lot of folks use things like notes from to supplement their textbook reading. The Excelsior practice tests ($75 for each corresponding exam) are also excellent study tools. You might find more helpful information here:

    Best of luck!!!
