Admitted Freshman Steps
Apply for Financial Aid
We’re dedicated to making a Marshall education affordable for every accepted student. In addition to offering competitive tuition, our financial aid packages include generous merit and need-based scholarships, loans, grants, and work-study opportunities. To be considered for financial assistance, you’ll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is made available each year on October 1.
Submit Your Enrollment Deposit
After you are accepted to Marshall University, you’ll pay a $100 enrollment deposit to reserve your spot in the incoming freshman class. Then, you’ll complete other steps on this checklist, including applying for campus housing, attending orientation, registering for classes, and more. We make it easy for you to pay your deposit to the Office of Bursar in one of these ways: online, by phone, or by mail.
Housing
After you submit your $100 enrollment deposit, you can sign up for on-campus housing. You can choose from residence halls designed for first-year students, with multiple dining options throughout campus, or opt for one of our Living-Learning Communities to live with other freshman students who have similar interests.
Marshall University has a two-year residency requirement for all freshmen and sophomores, so signing up for housing is a required step.
Local students who will be living at home with their parents and commuting to campus must fill out an authorization to commute request.
Register for Orientation
As a new freshman student at Marshall, you’ll take part in a full-day program to learn what it means to attend Marshall University. During New Student Orientation, you will:

Prepare for your first year at Marshall University, including academic expectations and student life
Meet with an academic advisor to register for your first semester of classes

Register for Classes

Secure Your Parking Permit
All Marshall students are permitted to have cars on campus. When you attend Orientation, you’ll be able to get a parking permit. If you are unable to attend Orientation, you’ll need to apply online for a parking permit.
Tuition & Fees
Check online for detailed information about Marshall’s tuition and fees. You’ll work with our Office of the Bursar to make your payments; we offer various options for paying tuition and fees — by check, money order, credit card, cash, and payment plans.
