Send official transcripts directly to Marian University's Office of Graduate Admission for all previously attended high schools and colleges. For any university you attended that is not in the United States, we require a course-by-course evaluation. Evaluations must include the U.S. equivalency, a course-by-course list, and copies of the original transcripts.
Admission to all graduate programs is subject to availability of space. Program faculty size, the number of students already in a program, and the number of new applicants all affect selection ratios in a given year.
