We're glad you have an interest in continuing your education at Marietta College. Candidates for admission may apply year round; but we recommend you file your application as early as possible. If you wish to be considered for academic scholarships you should apply as soon as possible. For those transfer students who have applied early and have been accepted, class registration for the semester will begin shortly after our graduation ceremony, so you are urged to submit your $200 enrollment deposit soon. This ensures your advising appointment is arranged prior to your registration time. Your enrollment deposit is fully refundable up until May 1st. Please read this entire page carefully before submitting your application.
