Request a Graduate School Campus Visit

Get a personal tour of the Marquette Graduate School campus 

Curriculum is important, but so is your environment where you'll be pursuing your graduate studies. A personal on-site campus of the graduate school visit gives you a chance to take it all in; the facilities and resources, meeting students and faculty, as well as the inviting, convenient campus that sits within the urban backdrop of Milwaukee. It's the best way for you to truly absorb Marquette's philosophy of cura personalis — care for the whole person — and how it will support you throughout your graduate experience.

Whether you are thinking about pursuing your master's, doctorate or graduate certificate, we're ready to meet you.

Advanced scheduling

Please contact us at least three weeks before your group visit. We will do our best to accommodate your selected date. However, because of campus events and staffing limitations, we may need to consider alternate dates. Most visits last between two to three hours. Group visit appointments are not available on weekends or university holidays.

What's included in a group visit?

  • Admissions presentation: Join a Marquette admissions representative for a formal presentation about the university, our history, our programs of study, and admission and financial aid procedures. Time will be available for general questions.
  • Campus tour: A current Marquette student will lead the group on a tour of campus. Tour highlights include the Raynor Memorial Libraries, St. Joan of Arc Chapel and the Alumni Memorial Union.
  • Special requests: Current student panels, meetings with faculty, or group lunches may be available upon request. The more notice we have, the more likely we will be able to accommodate special requests.
