Marymount will accept a maximum of 64 credit hours from freshman- and sophomore-level courses and an additional 20 credit hours from junior- or senior-level courses.

Transferology is a system which gives prospective Marymount transfer students the ability to determine which courses will transfer to Marymount. Transferology is a free resource. Students may create an account and input their courses from their prior institution into the system so that they may be reviewed for transfer credit eligibility. Students may also use Transferology to request more information about Marymount, view majors available at Marymount, and request an appointment with a Transfer Admissions Counselor at Marymount. Transfer applicants are encouraged to use Transferology to learn more about how their credits will transfer to Marymount.
For many colleges, course equivalences are readily available for students who wish to transfer to Marymount via Transferology's course equivalency
tool. Create a Transferology account and add your school and courses to see how your courses will transfer.
While very useful, this equivalency tool is not exhaustive. Students transferring from two or four-year colleges or universities not included in this tool or who have additional questions about transferring credits, should contact our admissions team to gain more information.
Credit by Examination
Transfer students may apply up to 30 hours of credit earned by examination to the 84-hour transfer credit maximum. Marymount will accept credit earned through College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and Advanced Placement (AP), and DANTES Program examinations. You can learn more about receiving credit by examination from the Office of the Registrar.
