A grant is a type of need-based financial aid that does not have to be repaid. All grant assistance is automatically accepted for students on CheckMarq.
The Marquette University College of Professional Studies offers a limited number of $1,000 Adult Learner Study Grants each session and/or term throughout the academic year. Grant recipients are selected primarily on the basis of financial need, academic performance and your personal statement.
Each recipient may renew the study grant without limit. Renewal is not guaranteed. The student is responsible for submitting an application each time they wish to be considered. Please direct questions to the College of Professional Studies at (414) 288-3153.
To be eligible, candidates must meet the following criteria:
Applications must be received two weeks prior to the beginning of the term/session. You can email your application to your College of Professional Studies academic adviser or submit it to the College of Professional Studies office in the 707 Building, Room 403 via mail or fax:

A loan is a type of financial aid that has to be repaid. Students who accept loans will be asked to sign a promissory note (a legal obligation to repay) and in some cases also complete loan entrance counseling. The process for each loan may vary. Upon graduation or withdrawal from the university, students may also be required to complete loan exit counseling.
Check with your school or public library for outside sources of financial aid. In addition, the Office of Student Financial Aid has a number of additional resources available on their website at www.marquette.edu/mucentral.
Other external national and local organizations offer annual scholarship opportunities for returning adult students such as Talbot’s, the Southeastern Wisconsin Educational Consortium (SEWEC) and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin.
The Office of the Bursar is responsible for processing your payments, sending out semester bills for your tuition, fees, and housing, and crediting your account with any financial aid you receive. For more information regarding payment policies and methods, contact Marquette Central at (414) 288-4000 or visit www.marquette.edu/mucentral.
