Prospective applicants are expected to submit official school transcripts translated from their native language to English, letters of recommendation, a personal statement covering why they want to study at Marshall, and IELTS scores to a standard of 6.5. For undergraduate applicants, a score of 6.5 guarantees admission. For applicants scoring lower than 6.5, admission to a mixed curriculum will be granted with instruction in language and general studies courses.
