Information for Marquette University students

Marquette University is a member of the Consortium of Midwest Catholic Graduate Schools, and participates in the Consortium's Inter-University Visitation Program. The Consortium includes Marquette University, University of Notre Dame, Loyola University, and Saint Louis University. This program provides the opportunity for a degree-seeking graduate student in good standing at one of the participating universities to take course work at any of the other universities and apply earned credits toward degree requirements at the student's home university. The student is responsible for making financial arrangements at the home university but attends classes on a short-term basis at the host university.

Qualifications and Restrictions


In order to participate, the student is required to:

1. be a degree-seeking student,

2. have completed at least one full-time semester at Marquette University and be in good academic standing; and

3. complete the appropriate Inter-University Exchange Course Approval and Manual Registration Form to "visit" one of the other three universities. (No application fee shall be charged.)


A student may apply a maximum of six (6) exchange credits toward degree completion of a 30 credit graduate program.


Application Deadlines


Due to the paperwork involved and the number of approvals necessary, the student must begin the application process no later than July 1, November 1, or April 1 for the fall term, spring term, or summer term(s) respectively.
