Payment Methods


I. Signed Financial Sponsorship Form (if not already submitted)  

Students fully sponsored by their home government or by other external scholarships should provide an official letter of support from their government or other sponsor instead of the sponsorship form.


II. Bank evidence
Students with private sponsors (parents, family, friends) must also provide a current, official bank statement or bank letter that clearly indicates that the financial sponsor has at least $58,700 (the 2016-17 estimated cost for 12 months) in his or her bank account. The bank statement must be dated no more than 12 months before intended Marquette enrollment.

Students who cannot obtain bank evidence can submit a larger verification deposit of $5,000. If you do not become a Marquette F-1 student, $4,500 is refundable. Students who are sponsored by their home government or who have evidence of other external scholarships do not need to provide bank evidence.


Once your deposit and financial verification are received, OIE will reserve your place at Marquette University and issue your Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20) for your U.S. F-1 student visa. Please notify OIE of your correct mailing address, especially if it has changed since you submitted your Marquette application.

Students Transferring F-1 Status: If you currently have F-1 status, you must arrange to transfer your F-1 status to Marquette. Complete the F-1 Transfer History Form in consultation with the Designated School Official at your current school. Your “Pending Transfer” I-20 will be sent to you after the History Form is received and after your SEVIS record has been released to Marquette.

Before You Enroll: Academic Reminders

Complete Current Coursework
Your offer of admission is contingent upon satisfactory completion of the course work in which you are currently enrolled. Satisfactory completion means finishing the work with comparable or better grades than those upon which Marquette offered you admission. Submit an official copy of your final secondary school transcript, final certificates and/or university transcripts to Marquette no later than February 1. Transcripts should be mailed to the Office of International Education. The university will suspend course registration if these official documents are not received.

English Language Assessment
If English is not your first language, you will likely need to take the English Language Placement Test. This test is given during the international student orientation. The results of this test will be used to determine your enrollment in Marquette’s English as a Second Language Program classes.

ESLP classes are always taken in conjunction with regular academic courses and should generally be taken during the first year. Results from ESLP classes are calculated in your GPA and, in all colleges except Engineering, the credits also count toward your undergraduate requirements. Read more about the English as a Second Language Program.

Students who are exempt from the placement test because of extensive evidence of English language proficiency are welcome to take the test if they would like a proficiency assessment to use in planning studies.

Course Registration and Class Selection
Course registration will begin in July. You will receive contact information for your academic adviser and a recommendation for your first semester class schedule. The Freshmen Registration Guide will be available in June.

Transfer Credit
Submit official transcripts or certificates for all International Baccalaureate, A-Level, Abitur, Advanced Placement and university courses no later than January 1 so that we can evaluate your previous advanced studies for possible transfer credit. In addition, please submit English translations of all related university course descriptions. Any transfer credit will be added to your online CheckMarq record for your review before registering for classes at Marquette.
