Transfer Discovery Days

find your place

Students come to Marlboro because they want to be part of a learning community that values who they are and what they have to offer. Transfer Discovery Days are a great opportunity to get to know Marlboro, and to decide if you could see yourself within our community.

We understand that you are more than just a transfer; you are an individual with unique talents searching for the path to best suit your needs for academic and personal growth. At our Transfer Discovery Days, you will have the opportunity to ask questions specific to transfer students, and experience an instant admission decision if you wish.

Marlboro College hosts a number of opportunities to visit throughout the school year. In addition to the options listed below, you are welcome to schedule a tour and and interview whenever is most convenient for you.

Instant Admissions Decisions:

If you would like to be considered for an instant admissions decision, you should submit beforehand, or bring the following materials with you when you visit:

  • The Common Application Form. This does not need to include the personal statement, and can be submitted online before the visit, printed out and brought the day of the event, or completed upon arrival.
  • Transcripts of all schools attended (high school and college; unofficial is acceptable pending that officials will be sent to the college).
  • An analytical writing sample. This paper should have been written for an academic class and accurately reflect your current analytical writing skills. There is no length requirement.

You should also be prepared for a campus interview. This will be an opportunity to chat with a community member about your academic experiences and learn how your academic goals can be realized through a Marlboro education. For questions about the instant decision process please contact the admissions office at 800-343-0049 or via email.
