On Your Marq (OYM) is a college success program designed to assist students on the autism spectrum in navigating the college landscape at Marquette University. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, we work together to build the support team students need to thrive at Marquette. Everyone on the student's team receives training on the best practices for working with people on the autism spectrum. Formal and informal supports available to aid students in the development of academic, social, and independent living skills include:

  • weekly seminars
  • one-on-one coaching
  • peer mentors
  • OYM specific tutoring

The first two years of the program focus on the student’s transition to the rigors of academia. In the second two years of the program, On Your Marq works with students to identify strengths and skills to transfer to their career and life after college.  

The cost of this program is $3,000 per semester, which assists in offsetting the costs of individualized support, materials for the weekly seminar, and specialized training of faculty and staff. If the program fee is a limiting factor in the participation of On Your Marq, please reach out to us to discuss funding options.  

We welcome all questions and inquires. For more information about On Your Marq, please contact us at oym@marquette.edu or 414.288.0212.
