Talk with our transfer admission advisor and visit our campus to see for yourself what we have to offer. To enroll for Fall 2017 classes at Marian University, apply now for admission.

Articulation information

Marian University is committed to maximizing credit transfer for each student in order to speed time to degree. Students who intend to graduate within a year (rising and continuing seniors) will be eligible for a teach-out arrangement subject to HLC approval. All students (regardless of anticipated graduation date) will transfer their earned general education requirements with a "C-" or better, in addition to their program credit as determined by an individualized transcript evaluation upon admission. Our goal is for Saint Joseph's students to be able to complete their degree at Marian in the same amount of time that it would have taken them at SJC.


Marian University is committed to awarding transfer students from Saint Joseph's College a comprehensive financial aid package that reduces the "out of pocket" tuition cost to what the student is paying at Saint Joseph's College as part of his or her tuition guarantee. There will be a few exceptions to this as it relates to those who are athletes and students receiving some form of tuition remission. We will work with these students to develop an aid package that fits each individual financial situation.

Steps for applying for aid:

  • Add Marian University to your 2017-18 FAFSA (school code: 001821)
  • Provide a copy of your 2016-17 Saint Joseph's College award letter (current year)

We may be reached by phone at (317) 955-6040 or via email at finaid@marian.edu. We can also schedule an in-person appointment, but we will need the documentation above in order to answer any detailed questions.
