Applying for admission to Marshall University is a step-by-step process. The Marshall University International Office of Admissions is ready to assist as you complete the undergraduate admission process to apply and be admitted as a Marshall freshman.
Your first step is to review all of our freshman admission requirements. When you’re ready, you can apply by completing our online application.
