Get Involved

We are excited that our students can now upload documents directly to Marquette! We know that the process of scanning and uploading documents can be challenging so we put together this guide to make the process easier! Please use the instructions below to help navigate the process of document upload.

Follow these Easy Steps...

Login to CheckMarq and review which documents have been requested by Marquette. You can follow these instructions on how to find out which documents are needed. Below are instructions for Android and iPhone users.

Step 1

No matter the type of phone, the tips below are universal

  • Use a contrasting background: If you’re scanning a white document, put it on a dark background. This will help the camera find the edges.
  • Try to get a straight-over shot: If you need to place the paper on the floor to get a perfect overhead shot, do that. It’ll result in a much cleaner scan.
  • Be patient, it may take more than one shot: Sometimes the scan feature clips the edges off of a document, cutting part of it off. It may take a few tries to get it just right.
Step 2
