Early Admissions

Undergraduate Admissions

Welcome to Marshall University!

If you are a high school student, you can apply to Marshall University as an Early Admission student — and start earning college credits before you graduate from high school! (If you are not currently enrolled in high school, please visit our Admissions page to get more information about other types of students who apply and are admitted to Marshall University.)

Marshall University offers a variety of Early Admissions coursework options for qualified high school students. Prior to graduating from high school, you can apply to Marshall for early college credit on either a full or part-time basis and can enroll in classes offered online or in person.

Please note that students who enroll at Marshall to earn college credits prior to high school graduation are not admitted as freshmen, cannot receive financial aid, and are not eligible for on-campus housing.
