Marshall accepts all transferable coursework from accepted, accredited institutions. However, our Admissions Office must determine how your previous credits equate to courses offered at Marshall. Use this transfer equivalency tool to see how the classes you’ve already received credit for may transfer to MU and how they can help you complete the four-year plan for your intended major. Also, be sure to check if your school has an articulation agreement or a 2+2 Agreement with Marshall.
