New Student and Family Programs


New Student & Family Programs plan three special events for incoming students and their families to help you prepare for your transition to life at Marquette.

SPARK (Summer Priority Advising and Registration Kick-off) is a required summer program to register and welcome new first-year students and their families.

New Student and Transfer Orientation will take place August 23-27, 2023, and is for all first-year and transfer students.

Family Weekend: will take place September 29-October 1, 2023! We can't wait to host you and your family.
