Closer to Home!

Want to Become One of the Herd but stay closer to home for a while?

Marshall University offers an undergraduate studies curriculum at the South Charleston Campus that allows students living in the Kanawha Valley and surrounding counties to complete the freshman year at Marshall without moving to Huntington. Students transition to the Huntington Campus in the sophomore year to finish their degrees.

Our undergraduate course offerings meet the first-year needs of most but not all majors at Marshall. For a complete list of undergraduate majors served by the South Charleston Campus, check here.

It is our goal to provide you with the quality education you expect from Marshall University. Enroll at South Charleston for your freshman year if you are looking for smaller class sizes, one-on-one attention from your professors, opportunities to pursue undergraduate research, a close-knit network of friends, and a chance to build your leadership skills in a welcoming environment. We offer academic services through the Student Resource Center and have an active student-led Creativity Board. We also sponsor periodic road trips to Huntington for special events and transition planning so you’ll be ready when the time comes to finish your degree in Huntington.

If you are a new student at Marshall, simply tell your advisor at New Student Orientation that you wish to take your freshman courses at the South Charleston Campus.
