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.

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.

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. In addition, please submit English translations of all related university course descriptions. Any transfer credit will be added to your CheckMarq record for review before registering for classes at Marquette.
If English is not your first language, you will likely need to take Marquette's English Language Placement Test. The dates for the tests will soon be posted.
The results of this test will be used to determine whether you place into any of Marquette’s English as a Second Language Program classes. ESLP courses are taken in conjunction with regular academic courses and are generally taken during the first year. ESLP course grades are calculated in your GPA. In all colleges except Engineering, the credits count toward your undergraduate requirements. Read more about the English as a Second Language Program.
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 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.
