How to Schedule Excelsior College® Examinations

Step 1: Request your exam fee check from Test Fee Services by calling 1-877-725-9410 or by email at If this is not your first exam, you will be required to provide your previous exam score to obtain your next exam fee check.

Step 2: Excelsior College® examinations are administered at Pearson Vue testing centers. There will be two fees associated with each exam attempt: the exam fee charged by Excelsior College® and the administration fee that is charged by Pearson Vue. You must register and pay for the examination through Excelsior College® prior to contacting Pearson Vue to schedule your examination. Register for your exam online at or by calling the Excelsior College® test registration line at 1-888-723-9267. In order to register online, you will need to establish a free MyExcelsior user account on Excelsior's® web site. (Note: With this account, you will be able to schedule your exams with Pearson Vue Centers forty-eight (48) hours after completing the registration process. Additionally, with this account, you will have access to scoring and receipt information, as well as content outlines for Excelsior's® exams.)

Step 3: After you have registered and paid for your exam, you will have six (6) months to schedule your exam appointment at a Pearson Vue testing center. You will pay the required administration fee at the time of scheduling your appointment. We recommend scheduling your appointment online using Pearson’s Internet Scheduling System web site at For your first examination, you will need to request a username and password to access Pearson’s scheduling system. This will take approximately twenty-four (24) hours. You may also contact Pearson’s Candidate Services toll-free at 1-888-926-9488; however, there will be a transaction charge for calling to schedule, reschedule, or cancel an examination appointment. The transaction charge and administration fee are not included in exam fee financing.

Step 4: Complete the exam, and forward your scores. In some cases, exam scores will not be immediately available upon completion of the exam. Always save a copy of your score for your records. See your Academic Guidance Planner for degree-specific details on how to submit your score to your educational institution.
