Since the other thread has begun to go off topic somewhat, I decided to start a new thread. I wrote to Excelsior to inquire about my specific situation and received the following reply: "Beginning July 1, Excelsior College will institute a new procedure for the consideration of credit from non-regionally accredited degree-granting institutions in the United States. To qualify, institutions must be approved by the US Department of Education, and hold either professional or national accreditation, as verified by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The two institutions that you have attended, Ashworth College and California Coast University, meet these qualifications, as they are nationally accredited (by DETC), so I would encourage you to pursue this process. The process involves having each of the two institutions that you attended verify that three regionally accredited institutions have accepted their credits. We will then contact these institutions, and the information that we receive from them will be reviewed by a faculty committee that will make a decision regarding the awarding of credit. There will be a $200 fee for each institution reviewed through this process. The fee will be applied toward your enrollment, if you matriculate in Excelsior College within a year after the review process is completed."
