Advanced Placement/College Level Credit

High school students may earn Medaille College credit by taking college-level courses in their high schools. A formal examination at the completion of the course is required with scoring processed through the College Board (see Academic Catalog). If a student has taken any Advanced Placement (A.P.) classes or any other college level courses during high school, he/she will need to make sure final transcripts from his/her high school and the college granting the credit are sent to the Admissions Office at Medaille. The Admissions Office will then forward them to the Registrar’s Office for review and evaluation.

Transfer Credit

What is the procedure to transfer credit to Medaille from another institution?

If a student is planning to take a course at another institution, he/she should contact the Registrar’s Office for the proper guidelines. A student should receive approval from the Registrar’s Office in advance of taking the course. A course description from the other institution needs to be provided when making the request. It is also important to review your plan with an academic advisor before completing the course.

Please Note: A student must earn his/her final 30 credits at Medaille if enrolled in a bachelor's degree program and his/her final 15 credits at Medaille if enrolled in an associate’s degree program (see Academic Catalog).

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
