Founded in 1971 by the New York State Board of Regents, Excelsior University was originally known as the Regents External Degree Program (REX). Initial development was funded by major grants from the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation. From 1971 until 1998, Regents College (as it became known in 1986) operated as a program of the Board of Regents (which also served as its board of trustees) and under the authority of The University of the State of New York by which degrees and diplomas were awarded during that period.  In April 1998, the Board of Regents granted Excelsior a charter to operate as a private, nonprofit, independent institution and on January 1, 2001, Regents College changed its name to Excelsior College. In the early 2000s, Excelsior was among the first institutions to develop and offer courses via fully online instruction.

Today, an independent board of trustees composed of prominent individuals in the fields of education, business, and the professions from across the United States governs Excelsior University, ensuring Excelsior delivers upon the promise of its mission, vision, and values. As are all educational institutions in New York state, Excelsior University is a member of The University of the State of New York.
