Abstract: Let G be a finite group whose order is divisible by a prime p to the first power only. Restrictions beyond the known congruences modulo p are shown to hold for the degrees of the exceptional characters of G, under the assumptions that either all $ p'$-elements centralizing a Sylow p-subgroup are in fact central in G and there are at least three conjugacy classes of elements of order p, or that the characters in question lie in the principal p-block. Results of Feit and the author are thereby generalized.
