Submit official transcripts or certificates for all International Baccalaureate, A-Level, Abitur, Advanced Placement and university courses no later than the first day of classes at Marquette for transfer credit evaluation.

If English is not your first language, you will likely need to take Marquette's English Language Placement Test. The test will be offered (online) twice before the start of the Fall semester:
On June 1-2 – results will be available before SPARK to aid in class registration; and
On August 9-10 – results will be available a few days later to assist with final class registration
The results of this test will be used to determine your enrollment in Marquette’s English as a Second Language Program classes. ESLP classes are taken in conjunction with regular academic courses and are generally taken during the first year. ESLP class grades are calculated in your GPA and, in all colleges except Engineering, the credits count toward your undergraduate requirements. Read more about the English as a Second Language Program.
Students who submit their enrollment deposit by May 24 will be included in the first (June) placement test. Students who deposit after May 24 will be included in the August placement Test. Students who are exempt from the placement test are welcome to take the test if they would like a proficiency assessment to use in planning studies.
Students will receive additional information about the placement exams shortly before each exam. There is no need to prepare anything for the placement exam.
University costs include tuition, a residence hall room, meal plan charges and student fees. Details are explained at Marquette Central's site. Also see our tuition information for total costs and estimated living expenses for 12 months.
An electronic billing statement will be generated after you register for classes. This information will be viewable in your CheckMarq student account under the Bursar tab. Click "View e-bill statements." Also see Marquette Central Office of the Bursar information with methods of payment, deadlines and monthly payment plans.
International students are considered for financial scholarships at the time of admission. If awarded, your scholarship is announced in your admission letter and will be credited to your tuition account each semester. Unfortunately, Marquette does not offer international student loans or need-based financial aid. Scholarships are not awarded to students who have full government funding.
Details on the orientation for new international students will be available on our new student orientation and arrival page.
