Transferring Credits

Marymount University generally accepts credits for courses completed with a grade of C or higher at other regionally accredited institutions of higher education.

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.

Marymount University has a 36 credit residency requirement, meaning no student may apply more than 84 hours of transfer credit toward a degree. For more details on our current transfer policies, see our undergraduate catalog.

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.
