Marietta encourages all qualified students to apply for admission. Decisions are made on a rolling basis, and admission is competitive. Each application is considered carefully.
Marietta College seeks students who are prepared to meet the challenge of a rigorous college curriculum. The Admission Committee considers the applicant's high school record, including the college preparatory courses taken, grades received, and scores on national examinations. Furthermore, it evaluates each applicant's energy, motivation, potential, emotional maturity, seriousness of purpose and attitude toward learning. Each application is read carefully.
Additionally, we seek students who are more than just academically prepared. The College prides itself on its strong sense of community and the diverse backgrounds and varied interests of its students. The Committee considers how each applicant will bring quality and vitality to the Marietta community. Such things as extra-curricular activities, non-academic interests, and creativity all become part of the admissions decision.
Marietta College is a member of the National Association of College Admission Counselors (NACAC) and endorses the Statement of Principles of Good Practice.
