We know this is a big change for Marlboro alumni and we’re sure you have questions: Where is my Plan? What do I put on my résumé? Who do I call for a transcript?
We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions, as well as a list of important contacts to help you get what you need, stay connected to each other, and we hope, get to know Emerson.
Where are Marlboro’s plans of concentration?
As a part of Marlboro College’s archives and special collections, all plans of concentration have been transferred to the University of Vermont in Burlington. To access a Plan of Concentration, please contact Silver Special Collections Library at the University of Vermont at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-656-2138. You can also visit the re-created Virtual Plan Room for excerpts from recently submitted Plans.
Does Emerson offer alumni access to library resources?
Alumni have access to on-site privileges including the use of print collections, media collections, databases, and reference assistance. Read full details about alumni library privileges here.
Can I keep my marlboro.edu email?
Email accounts for those who were Marlboro alumni as of the July 23, 2020 agreement will remain active for three years from the date of that agreement. These alumni will retain access to materials stored in Marlboro’s Google Drive for the three-year window, ending on July 23, 2023. Starting on that date, Emerson is offering free email forwarding for an additional period of one year, ending on July 23, 2024.
What about Potash Hill magazine?
The final issue of Potash Hill magazine was published online by Marlboro College in June of 2020. Additionally, Emerson is currently hosting the Potash Hill archives.
How do I request a transcript?
You can order your transcript from Parchment. You’ll need to start the order from Emerson, then later when it asks if you attended Marlboro, select Yes. Please allow 1-3 business days processing time.
Should I list Emerson as my school on LinkedIn, my résumé, job applications, etc.?
You should only list Emerson if you enrolled in and attend Emerson College after July 17, 2020. Graduates or former students who attended Marlboro College should reference that they attended or graduated from Marlboro College.
Should I list Marlboro as the source of my credential despite it no longer being an accredited institution?

Do I qualify for any Emerson benefits?
