UExcel, formally Excelsior College Examinations (or ECE), is Excelsior College's credit-by-exam program. With these exams, one can earn college level credit in select subject areas by passing a proficiency exam in selected topics. Exams are offered in computer-based format at thousands of test centers globally. Many colleges and universities will grant college credits for each test, although they are not as widely accepted as CLEP and DSST. Each exam usually corresponds to a one or two semester introductory or secondary course on the topic, and many provide upper-division credit. Most UExcel exams are considered equivalent to 3 credits in the semester system.

UExcel exams are acceptable for credit at the The Big Three schools. They are considered more difficult than easier CLEP tests, but offer more options to receive upper level credit in many cases.

COST: Around $110 to $470 depending on the test (as of January 2017)
