Excelsior Bachelor Degree Credit Cost
If I had 120 credits on my transcipt from another school and wanted to apply for a bachelor of arts in liberal studies and excelsior would accept them towards a degree. I would still have to according to excelsior college website have 12 excelsior college credits to graduate with the bachelor of arts. So does that mean that even with enough credits for the degree I would still need 12 credits from excelsior college and at $355 per credit, we are looking over $3,000 for a bachelor of arts degree at least just for the 12 excelsior credits. Are there any universities with that have cheaper per credit cost than Excelsior?
Have you looked at Charter Oak and/or Thomas Edison State College?

That is if the credits came from an accredited school (national or regional), and two they fit into one their degree programs. The Big Three are fairly well priced for what they offer, not many schools take close to 100% credit in transfer like they do. That is a very cool thing for adult learners!
However, your best bet is to call them directly, word from the horses mouth is better than second hand info. Many folks here have graduated from this school so you should get some great input but for my money I would contact them personally, you may be pleasantly surprised.

What porcentage of foreign credits do the big three accept for transfer?
First they are evaluated by a independent agency and then Excelsior usually gives you that credit as long as it fits with their requirements. I had around 50 units in engineering and math from the UK accepted into my BS at Excelsior.

Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs.
Many engineers develop new products. During the process, they consider several factors. For example, in developing an industrial robot, engineers specify the functional requirements precisely; design and test the robot's components; integrate the components to produce the final design; and evaluate the design's overall effectiveness, cost, reliability, and safety.
In addition to their involvement in design and development, many engineers work in testing, production, or maintenance. These engineers supervise production in factories, determine the causes of a component’s failure, and test manufactured products to maintain quality. They also estimate the time and cost required to complete projects.
•Starting salaries are among the highest of all college graduates.
•Employment is projected to grow faster than the average for all occupations, although growth will vary by specialty; overall job opportunities for engineers are expected to be good.
•A bachelor's degree in engineering is required for most entry-level jobs, but some positions may require a graduate degree.
