Advanced Study Program 

Program Description

The Marian University Advanced Study Program provides students the opportunity to take rigorous, college-level courses concurrent for both high school and college credit.

Enrolling in these programs does not commit the student to Marian University after high school graduation. Credits obtained from Marian University are normally accepted in transfer by other colleges and universities provided the student achieves at least a grade of C or higher in the respective courses.

Students who are admitted to Marian University and register for classes agree to abide by all policies and procedures of Marian University including those related to tuition and fee payment. Submission of the registration form financially obligates a student to pay the tuition and fees associated with this registration.

Students desiring the rebate must provide a written request including their printed name and Marian University student identification number to the Business Office prior to the tuition due date for their first semester of undergraduate attendance.
