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 resume? 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 recreated Virtual Plan Room for excerpts from recently submitted plans.
Does Emerson offer alumni access to library resources?
Due to campus density restrictions in place due to COVID-19, only current students, faculty, and staff are allowed in-person access to the library. When the campus density restrictions are lifted, alumni may request an alumni library card, which grants access to on-site library services, including JSTOR.
Can I keep my marlboro.edu email?
Email accounts for those who were Marlboro alumni as of the date of the agreement will remain active for two years. These alumni will retain access to materials stored in Marlboro’s Google Drive for the two-year window.
What about Potash Hill magazine?
The final issue of Potash Hill magazine was published online by Marlboro College in June of 2020. Additionally, Emerson has decided to host the Potash Hill archives permanently. Moving forward, Marlboro alumni class notes will be published in the Emerson College alumni magazine, Expression, and the magazine will be sent via postal mail to Marlboro alumni. Please continue to connect with other alumni by submitting your class notes.
How do I request a transcript?
You can request a transcript by writing email@example.com.
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?
Those who studied only at Marlboro College (and did not enroll in Emerson after July 17, 2020) should reference that they attended/graduated from Marlboro.
Do I qualify for any Emerson benefits?
Yes. Explore Emerson College alumni activities and benefits, all of which are available to Marlboro alumni.
I heard there is an independent alumni association. Where is that?
I have named Marlboro College in my estate plans. Do I have to change my will?
Emerson College’s planned giving team will reach out to Potash Hill Society members to confirm planned gifts, provide important information, and answer any questions. You may reach Emerson’s planned giving team directly by contacting Nadia A. Yassa, JD, director of estate and gift planning, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-824-8288.
How can I designate my financial support to Marlboro students?
You may support the Marlboro Institute of Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies at Emerson College by making a gift.
Will there still be Marlboro Reunions as part of Emerson Alumni Weekend events?
In light of COVID-19, all plans for in-person gatherings are on hold indefinitely. As it becomes safe to plan events once more, we look forward to collaborating with Marlboro alumni in thinking about ways to continue their traditions. Marlboro alumni are welcome and encouraged to attend any virtual events planned for Emerson alumni. Please see our events page for details on upcoming programming.
