The Marian University Dual Credit Program allows high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn college credit in introductory level courses and provide them a head start in their college careers. These courses are taught in a high school setting by qualified high school instructors. Students find the program both challenging and beneficial in reaching their educational goals.
Dual Credit Program courses taught in the high school carry the same course number and credit weight as the comparable course taught at Marian University. In addition, the same academic standards are expected ensuring the dual credit courses provide college level experience for students. The course requirements, syllabus, textbook and faculty evaluations are all identical to the course offered on the campus. Click here for more Benefits of Dual Credit
The student must submit a completed Marian University application for admission indicating non-degree seeking status. The application information is used to build the student’s academic record, which allows for course registration, grading, and academic transcript. Students will receive log in credentials to access MyMarian accounts upon acceptance.
Participating students must:
- Have taken appropriate prerequisite course(s), where applicable
- Achieve a grade point average of “B” within the appropriate discipline
- Rank in the top 25% of their class OR be earning a GPA of 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, OR score in the top 25% of the most recent standardized test (PSAT or ACT)
The application fee has been waived for all Dual Credit Program applications. Dual Credit students will register for semester only courses and/or courses that are fall and spring semesters through MyMarian. Course registration must be completed no later than September 1 of the academic year. Course registration for spring only courses must be completed no later than January 15 of the academic year. Failure to do so will result in non-enrollment.
Tuition for all Dual Credit Program courses is $150 per credit and will be billed directly to each student’s home address. Any financial questions should be directed to the university’s Business Office at 920.923.8520.
Marian University establishes an official transcript for each student enrolled in a Dual Credit Program course. High School instructors assign and submit final grades to the university’s Office of the Registrar. Credits earned and grades received become part of the official transcript and count automatically towards degree requirements for students who subsequently enroll at Marian. Credits may be transferrable to other universities and colleges, though policies for accepting transfer credits vary at different institutions. Marian can make no guarantees regarding transfer of credits; students should consult individual institutions and programs concerning transfer credits. Transcripts are $3 per copy and can be requested through your My Marian account. Instructions are provided to students.
