Application Process for Adult Undergraduates and Returning Students

Part-Time and Full-Time Adult Students

* Personal Essay Requirement
To help organize your essay consider the following questions:

  • Why are you interested in pursuing a degree at Marist College?
  • What are your academic/professional goals and how do you believe Marist can assist in achieving those goals?
  • Provide some personal history/any additional information about you that will help the Admission Committee better make an informed admission decision.

Application for Non-Matriculated Adult Undergraduate Students

Students who wish to attend Marist but are not seeking a degree may become non-matriculated students. Often students enrolling as non-matriculated are ones who are unsure if they want to become degree-seeking students or who just want to take a course they are interested in and would like to receive the college credit for that course. Students who want to enroll as non-matriculated students must submit a special application form to the Undergraduate Admission office.
