A note from the college

In reviewing applications for admission, Marymount University places primary emphasis on the strength of an applicant’s academic record — the high school record for an entering first-year student or the prior college studies of a transfer student. The university also takes into consideration national test scores, breadth of academic preparation, positive recommendations, and personal character in making its decisions.

From the college: Marymount University participates in the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Program and awards college credit to entering students with qualifying scores.

The prices listed above are probably not what you and your family will pay. Most college students receive financial aid, which reduces the amount the family actually pays. For U.S. colleges, use the college's net price calculator to get the best estimate of what your family will pay.
