Transfer Admissions

Newly Admitted Students

Congratulations on your admission to Marymount University! Here are some important next steps you need to take to make your enrollment at MU official:

STEP 1: Confirm your enrollment
To confirm that you will be attending Marymount, you’ll need to return the Enrollment Notification Form that was sent with your acceptance letter, along with your enrollment deposit.

You may pay your deposit by credit card over the phone by calling the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at (800) 548-7638 or you can mail a check to

Marymount University
Attn: Undergraduate Admissions
2807 North Glebe Road
Arlington, VA 22207

Copies of any submitted transcripts have been forwarded to the Registrar's Office for a credit evaluation. Please note that priority will be given to students who have submitted their enrollment deposit. Allow a few weeks from the time your deposit is received by the Office of Admissions to review your Transfer Credit Evaluation. Should you have any questions prior to your enrollment specifically related to your curriculum or courses, please contact your School office. If you have any courses in progress at the time of your acceptance, please be sure to have an official final transcript sent so that we can finalize your credit evaluation.


STEP 2: Generate your Student Account
Your student account will provide you with access to the Marymount portal, e-mail, Blackboard, and other internal sites. Create your account now.

You will receive a computer-generated password. If you would like to change this password to something easy for you to remember, please link to the myMarymount portal and select "Forgot/Change Password." Your password needs to be at least six characters.


STEP 3: Reserve your spot at New Student Orientation (NSO)
Incoming transfer students must attend an orientation session prior to their first semester at Marymount. During New Student Orientation (NSO), new transfers will be able to obtain a student ID and parking hang tag, learn about campus resources, meet with an academic advisor, and schedule or confirm their classes for the upcoming semester. Questions about transfer orientation should be sent to orientation@marymount.edu.

If you are unable to connect with an academic advisor prior to New Student Orientation, there will be an opportunity to create a class schedule when you attend.

For further questions about registration once you have connected with an advisor and attended NSO, please contact the Office of the Registrar.

Second-degree Nursing Students: There is a customized Orientation experience for those students enrolled in the accelerated second-degree B.S.N. program. You will receive information from the Malek School of Health Professions regarding the advising, registration, and orientation process once you have officially enrolled. Please skip to Step 5.


STEP 4: Review your Transfer Credit Evaluation from the Registrar's Office
After submitting all necessary transcripts, the Office of the Registrar will review materials and mail you a Transfer Credit Evaluation. You should receive this evaluation a few weeks after submitting all your materials. In this packet, you may receive notification that you need to complete the Directed Self-Placement (DSP) process. If that is the case, link to the DSP site here and complete the exercise.


STEP 5: Connect with an Academic Advisor.
All transfer students who have deposited and received their transfer credit evaluation should contact their academic school to connect with an advisor. This can be done only after you have deposited, received your Transfer Credit Evaluation, completed the Directed Self-Placement process if indicated by your Transfer Credit Evaluation, and reserved your spot for an orientation session. You can connect with an advisor prior to attending the orientation session of your choice; however, your schedule will be confirmed only by attending your orientation.

All transfer students are required to take DSC201 (INQ), a one credit inquiry course.

Find your major or program of study and connect with your Academic School here.

If you are unable to connect with an academic advisor prior to an NSO session, there will be an opportunity to create a class schedule when you attend.

For further questions about registration once you have connected with an advisor and attended NSO, please contact the Office of the Registrar.


STEP 6: Inquire about campus housing (Resident Students)
Transfer students who want to live on campus must contact the Office of Campus and Residential Services to determine their eligibility and to get more detailed information about their housing options.


STEP 7: Attend New Student Orientation (NSO)
Participate in this program for students and families. Students will have opportunities to meet peers, faculty, and staff; learn about campus resources; and confirm their class schedule. Please direct questions about orientation to the Orientation Office.


FINAL STEP: Begin classes at Marymount!
Spring classes start January 12th. We’re happy to have you at MU!
