The Pre-MARC program can help if you are a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) student who may be planning to attend graduate school and want…

  • a solid background in research in order to have a competitive graduate school application,
  • a mentor,
  • assistance navigating the maze of rules, regulations, expectations, and activities of general college life,
  • to get connected to the on-campus research community, and
  • a summer research experience.

Then Pre-MARC is here for you.  So join us and start your career on the right foot with Pre-MARC!

There is no application for pre-MARC, to be in the program you need to register for the pre-MARC GENS250 class offered in the Spring semester.
