Excelsior College Partners with Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation



Excelsior College is proud to announce a partnership with the Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation, which operates the Military Women’s Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. The Military Women’s Memorial is the leading memorial and education center honoring women’s contributions to the service of our nation, beginning with the American Revolution. It honors the nearly 3 million women who have served or are serving in or with the U.S. Armed Forces through the unique opportunity to register their service and share their stories.

Excelsior awards credit for military experiences and accepts credit for CLEP, Dantes, and other approved exams to help students who are servicemembers and veterans get closer to degree completion. In its 50 years, Excelsior has graduated more than 72,000 service members, veterans, and their family members.

“The Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation is enormously pleased to partner with Excelsior College,” said Phyllis Wilson, the foundation’s president. “The benefit of reduced tuition costs and other fees as well as a generous college credit transfer option is an extraordinary opportunity. I love that the Military Women’s Memorial partnership with Excelsior College can help our valued members, the staff, and their family members achieve their educational goals. Thank you, Excelsior College!”

Since March is Women’s History Month, which encourages the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history, this timely partnership will help those who have served in the military and their families to further themselves and their careers.
