UExcel Exam and Excelsior College Exam (ECE) Equivalencies

Updated 7/1/2013

Students are eligible to receive credit for UExcel and Excelsior College Exams (ECEs) upon application to a UAA Certificate, Associate, or Bachelors level degree program.  Students pursuing an Occupational Endorsement Certificate are not eligible.  Please verify your admission status before ordering transcripts.

Satisfactory minimum scores are based on recommendations and evaluations from both The American Council on Education and academic departments at UAA.  Credit for exams will be elective credit or, through agreements with departments, will be equated to UAA courses.
The UAA course equivalency for each exam is subject to change.

 

To order a UExcel or ECE score report, visit http://www.excelsior.edu/exams/transfer-credits.

Your score report should be sent to:

UAA Enrollment Services
PO Box 141629
Anchorage, AK 99514-1629

If you do not see your exam listed, took an exam that was scored on a numerical scale, or took your exam prior to 2008, please contact the Transfer Credit team at transfer@uaa.alaska.edu.  Scores and equivalencies for older exams, as well as Excelsior exams that are no longer offered, are available upon request.
