Undergraduate Admissions

Marlboro College is a learning and living adventure like no other. You’ll attend classes with on average seven other students, collaborate with faculty to map out a personalized course of study, participate in a self-governing community, learn to embrace snow, become well-versed in broomball, and meet your friends for life.

Are you passionate about learning? Do you want to be an active member of an exceptionally close-knit, open-minded community? If your answer is yes on both counts, Marlboro may be the right place for you.

Our admissions team is here for guidance and eager to get to know you as you get to know Marlboro. So if you don’t find the information you’re looking for in this section (or just want to talk to a human), contact the Marlboro admissions office at 800-343-0049 or admissions@marlboro.edu.

Life as a Student

Self-directed learning and a self-governing community. (Are you sensing a pattern?) Marlboro students have the freedom and responsibility to shape their own academic journeys and to be part of a dynamic, creative community that embodies the DIY spirit.
