    There was more information in the video description than there was in the video.

    Well, then to save everyone a click:

    Excelsior College is pleased to announce a new collaboration with The National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS). Philip Kahn, MST, Assistant Director at NCCRS said, “It’s extremely gratifying that together we can provide individuals with a pathway to a degree because that otherwise might not have been possible.” He added, “We’re thrilled Excelsior is offering employees and students of our member organizations so many benefits, including tuition saving of up to 20%.” Since 1973, NCCRS has been evaluating training and education programs offered outside of the traditional college classroom setting and translating them into college credit equivalencies.

    I'm confused. Is this really anything different from what we knew last week or last month or whatever?

    Nothing new really, I just think this is more of a "let everyone know we're doing this" type of thing... they just want to let the word out and get more publicity from it as for most colleges, enrollment is dwindling downwards at an unwanted rate...

    I'm just glad they no longer go by the name National PONSI. Way too close to Ponzi scheme. I don't know what they were thinking with that one, lol.

    Comments like this are why I rarely post on this site. This site is going down the tubes while Degree Forum is thriving.

    The comment wasn't about you; it was about the video. It's a fact; the video didn't include any information about the partnership. In the meantime, anti-vaxxers and white supremacists are spreading misinformation on the other forum, so it's not any different.
