Excelsior College Examinations (ECE)
Most ECE exams are 3-hour tests. They are administered via computer at Pearson VUE Testing Centers.
Excelsior College was formerly called Regents College. Several years ago, these tests were called ACT-PEP (Proficiency Examination Program) exams. In the changes over the years, scoring methods and cutoff scores have varied. If you tested several years ago and need assistance in interpreting your scores correctly, contact the Director of Testing Services.
