Academic Year

Marymount University operates on a semester system. The two terms of the regular academic year are known as the fall and spring semesters. Marymount may also offer abbreviated mini-mester sessions within the academic year. The summer term is known as the summer semester, with courses taught in segments identified as sessions. Sessions of varying length offer students the opportunity to earn credit during the summer semester.

Undergraduate students at every level use the summer sessions to accelerate their studies, compensate for missed or failed courses, or continue steady progress toward the completion of their degree programs. The university encourages visiting students to use the summer sessions to acquire credits for transfer to their home institutions.
