Discussion of Marshall University's Admissions Standards:

Marshall University admissions aren't overly selective, and the great majority of applicants will be admitted. In 2015, 88% of all applicants received an acceptance letter. Most hard working high school students should have a good chance of being admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who won admission. Most had SAT scores (RW+M) of 880 or higher, an ACT composite of 16 or higher, and a high school average of a "C+" or better. Your chances will improve if your grades and test scores are above these lower ranges, and you can see that the majority of students admitted to Marshall had solid "A" and "B" high school averages.

In general, Marshall does not have holistic admissions and admissions decisions are based primarily on high school grades and ACT / SAT scores. The Marshall application does not ask for an application essay, a list of extracurricular activities, or letters of recommendation. The university does ask about your legacy status, varsity sports, and military service. You can learn about the university's GPA and standardized test score requirements on the Marshall University admissions website. Realize that the university does enroll a limited number of students who don't meet these requirements under "conditional admission." These students must complete certain college preparatory courses early in their time at Marshall.
