Please note: To start or complete your degree with a leadership-focused bachelor's degree program, please follow the application steps below.

1) If you previously attended Marquette University and left while in good standing, use this form to apply for readmission.

2) If you have never enrolled in a degree program at Marquette, you must first apply and be accepted into Marquette University by following the steps listed below. Applications into the Undergraduate Professional Studies Program within the Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences are accepted year-round.

  • Complete the online application. If you have attended other colleges, please have your dates of attendance (month and year) ready and the number of college credits earned at each institution. Be sure to fill in the required fields marked with an asterisk. On the final application page, click on the Submit button at the bottom of the screen. Clicking this button is the equivalent to signing Marquette's application for undergraduate admission.
  • Order your transcripts. Request your official transcripts from: (a) the high school or institution from which you received your diploma or GED; and (b) all colleges and universities you have attended.

    Ask each school to mail your official transcripts directly to:

    PLEASE NOTE: For a transcript to be official, it must be received by the Undergraduate Professional Studies Program in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences directly from the records offices of your high school and college(s). A photocopy delivered by the student will not be accepted. Only then will your application be matched with your transcript(s) for review and evaluation.

  • Prepare an essay. An essay is required as part of your application and admission into the Undergraduate Professional Studies Program.

    Answer the following in your essay: At Marquette University, we want our students to Be The Difference. How does receiving a Marquette education allow you to Be The Difference? Consider all aspects of your life: family, community, workplace, etc.

    Once your essay is complete, send an email to sandra.cleveland@marquette.edu and attach your essay. Please remember to add your name, address and contact information (phone and email address) to the essay.
