To enroll at Marquette, please review and complete these next steps:
Log in to your Application Account. Click on the "Accept Your Admission" form and follow the prompts to officially accept your spot and pay the $500 non-refundable deposit.
The deadline for tuition and housing deposits for Spring is December 1. The priority deadline for tuition and housing deposits for Fall is May 1. The total deposit is $500: $200 for tuition and $300 for housing. Submitting your deposit means you are committing to enroll at Marquette. Deposits are non-refundable.
If you have trouble making your deposit payment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Complete these three steps to receive your Form I-20 (see details for each step below):
A. Submit Financial Verification
B. Submit Official Academic Documents
Upon completion, you will receive your Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20) for your F-1 student visa.
Students Transferring F-1 Status: If you currently have F-1 status, you must transfer your SEVIS record to Marquette by completing our F-1 Transfer History Form with help from your current Designated School Official. Your I-20 will be sent after the History Form is received and your SEVIS record has been released to Marquette.
I. Signed Financial Sponsorship Form (if not already submitted)
Students fully sponsored by their home government or by other external scholarships should provide an official letter of support from their government or other sponsor instead of the sponsorship form.
II. Bank Evidence (if not already submitted)
Students with private sponsors (parents, family, friends) must also provide a current, official bank statement or letter indicating the financial sponsor has at least $65,232 (the 2022-23 total estimated cost) on deposit. The statement must be dated no more than six months before Marquette enrollment.
If you cannot obtain bank evidence, you can submit a verification deposit of $5,000. If you do not become a Marquette F-1 student, $4,500 is refundable.
Options to Submit Financial Verification Materials:
If you uploaded or submitted unofficial academic records (transcripts) and/or exam results when you applied, you must provide official transcripts and examination results before an I-20 Form can be issued. (Academic records may include high school transcripts, university transcripts, examination results, and/or graduation certificates if available.)
Remember, your offer of admission is contingent upon completion of any course work you are currently enrolled in with grades comparable or better than those upon which Marquette offered you admission.
Options for sending official academic records
Complete the housing application by logging into your CheckMarq student account and clicking on the Next Step link. The housing forms will be unlocked 24 hours after you pay your deposit.

If you have trouble logging into CheckMarq or don't remember your password, call the IT Help Desk at (414) 288-7799.

Any transfer credit will be added to your CheckMarq record for review before registering for classes at Marquette.
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 merit 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, full scholarships 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.
