Monmouth has endless opportunities to find your passion

Everyone and everything is on the rise at Monmouth University. Working closely with distinguished faculty, students are getting the attention and support they need to prepare for the road ahead. In fact, this strong, personalized education continues to lead students to successful careers and greater academic pursuits. That’s part of why every year, students choose Monmouth from a variety of top private universities and East Coast institutions. The University attracts students from around the US, but with a majority of students coming from the Northeast. Our diverse student body consists of approximately 4,450 undergraduate and 1,500 graduate students. We’re large enough to have dozens of majors and degree programs and a breadth of student resources, yet we’re still small enough to boast a low student-faculty ratio.

There are many types of financial aid for students, and many factors are considered, so we encourage you to explore the breadth of our resources. Monmouth partners with students to develop a plan to manage tuition and fees and other educational expenses, taking into account individual financial situations.

As one of The Princeton Review’s "Best Business Schools," our recent distinctions and accolades highlight how the University is enhancing its academic reputation. From athletics and clubs to Greek life, from social gatherings to multicultural activities, Monmouth has staked a place among the top private universities in the country. At Monmouth University, you can follow your interests as far as your courage will take you. We have a Real Estate Institute, a Peace Corps Prep Program, the Bruce Springsteen Archives, and the Center for American Music. And through these offerings, all our students are actively engaged in experiential learning—whether through our Urban Coast Institute, our exclusive relationships within the music industry, or our prime location an hour outside both New York City and Philadelphia.

Even our campus is evolving. With new academic buildings and residence halls, Monmouth provides new students with a rewarding and meaningful college experience. Come visit our 170-acre campus and you’ll quickly feel our warm, friendly atmosphere and marvel at our historic architecture mingled among new academic buildings and residence halls. Given Monmouth’s coastal location and its proximity to cities like New York and Philadelphia, students enjoy easy access to many cultural and recreational opportunities. An in-person visit is the best way to get to know our school, experience the positive energy and enthusiasm of our students, and learn firsthand why Monmouth University could be the perfect fit for you.
