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.

If you have any questions regarding the dual enrollment program with Mount Aloysius, please do not hesitate to stop in the guidance office to discuss the program and obtain application materials.









The Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives high school students exposure to college-level material through involvement in AP courses. Through this program, students may earn credit, advanced placement, or both for college. The AP Program promotes critical thinking independent evaluation, accelerated learning and achievement.

Our AP program offers rigorous college level courses that have been approved by the College Board and prepares students for success in their academic futures. Under this accelerated learning program, students will sharpen their analytical and writing skills, and hone their study habits in preparation for a demanding college curriculum.


The College Board has implemented an ordering window and procedure for taking the exams. You must go onto your college board account and sign up for each exam you are planning to take. Even if you are not taking the exam, you still need to “join the class” in case your teacher wants to give assignments from the College Board. The payment of $93.00 for each exam and this form is due by Friday October 28th. No refunds will be given. If students have financial needs, please see Mrs. Pearce in the guidance office for payment instructions.


Please circle the exams that you will be taking and make checks payable to Marion Center High School.
