Marshall is the place for you!
What is MPP?
The Marshall Pathways Program (MPP) is the first Undergraduate Admissions initiative designed to assist underrepresented Black and African—American undergraduate students successfully transfer to USC Marshall. Marshall Admissions partners with USC Enrollment Services Division to identify students who were on the cusp of being admitted to USC as freshmen, and invite these high achieving students to apply to USC as sophomore transfer students. MPP was founded in 2019 by Marshall Undergraduate Admissions, and since its inception, MPP students have transformed the USC Marshall community by excelling both inside and outside of the classroom.
Through this invitation-only program, you will be fully engaged with the USC community, involved in Marshall opportunities, and become a lifelong Trojan. The Marshall Undergraduate Admissions team will partner with you through various activities to ensure that you are well prepared to begin your journey at Marshall as a sophomore.
