First-Year Student Admissions Calendar

Please note, the timeline below is for First-Year Applicants who plan to start classes in the Fall semester. Applications for the Spring semester are reviewed on a rolling basis starting in October.


Apply for Admission

For the Fall 2024 application cycle for first-year domestic and international students, Marquette is offering two application deadlines: Early Action and Regular Decision. The application will be available in early August. 

If you applied Early Action (on or before November 15), you will receive an admission decision notification through your student status page on December 15.

Regular Decision applications submitted to Marquette by January 15 are considered as on-time and are reviewed as part of the initial Regular Decision application pool. On-time Regular Decision applicants will receive an admission decision through their student status page by February 1.


Applications received and completed after the January 15 deadline will be reviewed on a rolling and space-available basis. Decision notifications for these applicants will begin in February following the decision release for on-time Regular Decision applicants.
