I am new to the forum. About 2 days ago I was ready to sign up with RUE for my RN, luckily I found this website and have now been researching for the last few days about Excelsior. I find Excelsiors website to be very confusing. I was given a print out for the cost from RUE for example for English comp, my fee for RUE is $425 then I also would have to pay $335 to Excelsior for fees. Are you saying I would only have to pay the $335? But then I would have to find my own study guides or text books? If that is the case thank god I found this site I will save about $5000. Does that Fee to Excelsior also include the exam fee? Thanks for any info this is a huge decsion for me and now I am even more confused.
