Mount Aloysius College Dual Enrollment

Marion Center Area School District has entered into an agreement with Mount Aloysius College to offer college level courses at our high school for interested juniors and seniors. The courses eligible for college credit include:

Advanced Placement English Literature - 3 credits

Advanced Placement Biology - 4 credits

Advanced Placement Chemistry - 4 credits

Advanced Placement US Government - 3 credits

Advanced Placement Calculus BC - 3 credits

Students enrolling in these courses are not required to participate in the dual enrollment option.

The cost of a 3 credit course is approximately $155 and a 4 credit course is $205. Payment for these courses will not be due until November of the participating school year.

Students will receive a transcript from Mount Aloysius with courses and credits listed. It is the student’s responsibility to forward this information to any post secondary institution they will be attending. They will need to check with the admissions office of that school to see how the credits will transfer. Credits usually transfer as general education requirements. Actual grades and grade point averages do not transfer.
