Excelsior College

For over 40 years, Excelsior College has expanded access to higher education for adult learners through its flexible, affordable, and innovative programs and services. Established by the New York State Board of Regents in 1971, America’s first virtual university was founded on the philosophy that what you know is more important than where or how you learned it.

The Sessions/Excelsior partnership includes two facets: an exciting articulation agreement under which Sessions College graduates of its Graphic Design, Web Design, and Digital Media degree and certificate programs can round out their education by earning a specialized bachelor’s degree in Business and Management or Technology Management from Excelsior College, a regionally accredited institution, in two years or less —taking advantage of outstanding credit transfer program and academic partner tuition.

In addition, the Center for Professional Development at Excelsior College offers Sessions College award-winning vocational design certificates, in line with its mission of preparing students for “portable” careers.
