Marquette is a test-optional institution. At the point of application, students can choose if they want their scores to be used as part of the review process. The details listed on this page only apply to students that choose to include a test score.
Methods of Test Score Submission
Applicants who choose to submit test scores may submit their ACT and/or SAT scores in any of the following ways:
- Submit a screenshot, picture or scanned copy of the score through your applicant portal at this link or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Send your scores directly from the testing agency to Marquette. Click here for the ACT (4610 is Marquette's ACT code). And click here for the SAT (1448 is Marquette's SAT code).
- Ask your high school counselor to submit your score through the free platform Slate.org.
- Submit your scores via notation on an official transcript submitted by your high school counselor.
Admission decisions are made with your success at Marquette in mind. Academic integrity is a critical element of higher education, and part of our student code of conduct; this is a standard we want to reinforce as we make admission decisions. If the university discovers potential misrepresentation of test scores, the Office of Admissions will review the situation and determine if a student is ineligible for admission at the sole discretion of Marquette University. Students who misrepresent academic information are subject to registration cancellation (if registered), or to sanction from Marquette. This could include dismissal from the university for students already enrolled.
For students submitting a standardized test score, Marquette will use a superscore (a new composite created by using the highest testing section scores from multiple ACT or SAT testing dates) when reviewing a file for admission.
