Advanced Placement (AP)

Marymount University participates in the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Program and awards college credit to entering students with qualifying scores. Applicants who seek advanced placement because they have taken one or more of the Advanced Placement Examinations must have the examination results sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to enrollment. Freshman and transfer students matriculating for fall semester who have earned a qualifying score may be granted credit (without grades). Advanced credit earned in this manner by entering freshmen and transfers will fulfill any University or departmental graduation requirement.

Current students’ official reports must be mailed to the Registrar’s Office. The examinee copy cannot be used to assign credit. Credit will not be assigned for exams that duplicate coursework previously completed. The following information is meant to be used as a general guideline and is subject to change.
