Special Academic Programs

Marymount California University offers a variety of programs designed to meet the needs of students preparing for post-secondary education and professionals looking for rigorous academic professional development.

Marymount in the Schools offers a concurrent enrollment program where high school students have the opportunity to earn Marymount California University credit while taking select AP courses.

The BA-MS Application provides students with a structured graduate education during the last two semesters of the undergraduate degree.

Studying overseas provides a unique opportunity for exposure to fresh perspectives on international political, economic and social issues, interpersonal relationships and ultimate career choices.

Kings On Campus Plus program is a unique program designed to help international students adapt to life in the USA more easily and succeed in their studies.  Students enroll in American degree programs and – from day one of their freshman year – they attend the same classes as their American colleagues.

Graduating seniors of the Archdiocese’s high schools are eligible for the program. Neither SAT nor ACT test scores are required for admission. Plus, the process for admission is a simple, one-page form, and not the cumbersome paperwork routinely required by most universities. Marymount also has waived the $50 application fee. A $200 deposit is required to secure a student’s enrollment in the fall class.  For more information, please contact admission@marymountcalifornia.edu
