Welcome New Students

We are thrilled you will be joining the Marlboro community and look forward to meeting you.

Prior to your arrival, there's a lot of information we need to exchange. In order to make things easier for you (and to further green our environment), we present to you this Virtual Welcome Packet. When you have completed every item on the CHECKLIST PAGE, you're ready to come to campus! Your deadline for each and every form is January 5, 2018. It is imperative that you submit your forms by this date or your enrollment status will be affected. Thank you for your cooperation.
