Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I know which course to register for?

Please reach out to your guidance counselor or high school teacher to find out which one of our Molloy College courses (course codes) match the course you are taking at the high school. For example, something that may be called Italian 5 at your high school may translate to ITA 1010 at Molloy.

How does the High School Scholars Program compare to the AP Program?

The High School Scholars Program at Molloy College awards credits based on the grade you earn for the work you accomplish during your course. Credits earned through the AP Program are dependent on the score achieved on a single examination.

How do I know if I'm registered for a course?

You can use your Lion's Den account to see the courses you are registered for by clicking the "My Academics Tab" and then "My Current Schedule." You may also confirm your registration with your high school. Each partner high school has a designated High School Coordinator. Your High School Coordinator can confirm if you are on the Molloy College Course roster.

What happens if I miss the late registration period?

No registrations will be accepted after the deadline. Students who miss posted deadlines will not be eligible for college credits.

Can I drop a course and get a refund?

No, High School Scholars Program courses are not eligible for refunds.

Is there financial aid available?

The High School Scholars Program tuition is already greatly discounted from on-campus rates. Therefore, no other financial aid is available through Molloy College for participating students.

How can I find out my grade in a course?

Reach out to your high school guidance counselor or teacher to find out the grade you received in the course and use our conversion chart listed below.

What is Molloy College's grading policy?

All students must be assigned letter grades. The following grade conversion chart is generally used to transfer numerical marks to letter grades:

Letter Grade           Numerical Grade

How do I request my Molloy College transcript?

The best way to request a transcript is by downloading our transcript request form from our website. Further instructions can be found on the transcript request form. You can also contact our Registrar Office at 516-323-4300.

Can I transfer Molloy College credits to other schools?

Please keep in mind that credit transfer practices vary by school. Colleges and Universities that accept college credits earned through a high school program will accept Molloy College credits. Students may receive elective credits, advanced standing placement, requirement waivers, or a combination of the aforementioned. Most colleges require a minimum grade of "C" or better. We highly recommend that students directly contact colleges for information on transfer credit policies.

Will my High School Scholars Program grades affect my GPA at the college I eventually attend?

Most institutions do not factor course grades for transfer credit into a student's GPA. However, the grade you earn in your course is part of your permanent record at Molloy College and will count toward your GPA if you attend Molloy College. If you are concerned about your grades earned in the High School Scholars Program, you should contact the Admissions Office at the college/university you plan to attend for more information.
