Advanced Placement Courses

Students in Advanced Placement courses (AP) are required to provide a final, official transcript showing the results of AP coursework. Transcripts must be sent directly from the College Board to Admissions at Mount Royal University. Request official AP transcript through collegeboard.com.

*If an MRU course equivalency (university level) is awarded as shown in this chart, the course may be used as a high school equivalent course as noted in the MRU Group A or B column.

Note: 1xxx = Junior Level Unspecified


Applicants who successfully complete AP courses with a minimum grade of ‘3’ may use applicable AP courses for the purpose of admission and transfer credit. Where an applicant presents both an

AP course and the corresponding Grade 12 course, the higher grade will be used.
