I have been offered admission — now what?

Once you have been offered admission, you must notify the Graduate School that you intend to accept the offer of admission. Instructions are included in your admission letter regarding how to notify the Graduate Schooll.

Once we receive your notification, we will matriculate you, which is the administrative act that will generate eligibility for you to register for classes. Within 24 hours of being matriculated, and once registration has begun and your registration time/date has been reached, you will be able to register for classes.

You are encouraged to register for classes early in order to avoid being closed out of classes that might fill up. It is not necessary to delay registering in order to avoid receiving an early tuition bill.  Tuition bills are not sent out until approximately one week before the beginning of the term.  (See the Office of the Bursar Web site for specific dates.)

Shortly after we received your application for admission, you should have received an email containing your Checkmarq User ID and password. This is what you will use to log in to the CheckMarq system to register for classes. The Web site for CheckMarq is

If you never received or ha
ve misplaced your User ID or password, you must contact the ITS Help Desk at (414) 288-7799 or via e-mail at

Additionally, every student is assigned a nine digit Marquette ID number which identifies you as a Marquette University student and will stay with you forever. This number is included in your letter of acceptance and will also be found on your MU ID card.
