Admissions Requirements

All master's programs at Marlboro College require that you have completed a bachelor's degree. In keeping with Marlboro's emphasis on independent thinking, we make admissions decisions based upon your individual qualifications for our programs and how well our programs align with your goals. Therefore, you are not required to take GREs or to supply test scores.

The following are materials you will need to apply to Marlboro Graduate and Professional Studies programs. If you have any questions, please contact our graduate admissions office at (888) 258-5665 x209 or graduateadmissions@marlboro.edu.
