Marquette Advantage Transfer Pathway

The Marquette Advantage is a transfer pathway for Catholic Memorial High School (CMHS) graduates to earn a Marquette University degree. CMHS graduates first enroll at Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) OR University of Milwaukee at Waukesha (UWM-W) and complete recommended transferrable coursework prior to transferring to Marquette University to complete their bachelor’s degree.

The Advantage

Upon completion of your Marquette degree, you will join the many thousands of proud MU alumni around the globe! The only difference is the path you took. The advantages of this path are clear.

  • Marquette family
  • Cost savings
  • Support

You are Marquette! Marquette Advantage participants are part of the Marquette family from the start. While at WCTC or UWM-W students will be able to use all the services WCTC or UWM-W provides, and participants will also receive a Marquette ID, access to the MU libraries, opportunities to participate in Marquette clubs and sports, and exclusive invitations to Marquette events like basketball games and on-campus speakers.

With the help of our transfer advisor, students can transfer up to half of their MU degree from WCTC or UWM-W, shaving off two whole years at Marquette. Typically, you will only have two years remaining at Marquette University. Participants will also be considered for scholarship and financial aid!

To ensure your success at WCTC OR UWM-W and a seamless transfer to Marquette, you will be assigned a peer mentor and have two academic advisors, one at the community college and one at Marquette. You will be well taken care of! Your peer mentor, who is a student that will have gone through the same process you're going through, will assist you as you transition to the college environment, navigate course registration, and learn the tips and tricks of being a college student.

Get Started

By completing the participation form, you are submitting your interest in joining the Marquette Advantage program. The participation form is not binding. CMHS Students have until May 1 of their senior year to decide if the Avenue Advantage is best option for their future.
