I earned my BS in Liberal Studies from Excelsior back in 2002. I was able take a combination of DSST, CLEP, and ECE tests to earn over three years of credits while in the military. My gameplan from the start was to take the BS and get into a Masters program. I ended up attaining my Masters in Network Security through Capitol College (all online) which will be conferred in a few weeks. I already had extensive experience in the field. To all the people uncertain about Excelsior put your fears to rest. It works and I am an example of it. I have as much pride in my BS as in the Masters, because of the way Excelsior gave me the opportunity to earn the latter. Just sharing my experience.
