Admission & Scholarship Deferral Policy

Deferring Admission

Students admitted for a fall term who do not enroll at Marquette for that term may choose to enroll at Marquette in the subsequent spring term.

If a student took college courses at another institution prior to reapplying to Marquette for the spring term immediately following the fall term for which they were admitted, they will, for financial aid purposes, be packaged as a transfer student.  The Pere Marquette Scholarship and any other financial aid they received as a first-year applicant should not be promised to them as a transfer.  Transfer applicants will be awarded based on the transfer awarding policy for the term for which the transfer student has been admitted.  They will not need to resubmit the FAFSA.  Additionally, transfer applicants may qualify for any of the transfer scholarships based on eligibility.

Students admitted for a fall term who do not enroll that fall but do enroll the subsequent spring term and who have not taken any college courses since their high school graduation will have their financial aid package reinstated for that spring term.
