Try asking this question in the distance education area. I did attend Excelsior and graduated in Jan. Good luck!

It actually took me 3 years, but less than a year to do everything except CPNE. I failed CPNE 2 times. It took time get my nerves back and to get the money. People say I was brave, but I just had invested to much time and money to quit. I hope this helps. :twocents:

Can anyone attend Excelsior or is it for military only? I live in Raleigh and have been looking at attending VGCC or Wake Tech but the waiting lists might be too long and I want to start this Fall. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
