First-Year Student Process
Applying to Monmouth College is a straightforward and easy process. We practice wholistic admission and review completed admission files on a rolling basis once they are complete, starting in early September.
All applicants must submit:
- Admission application via The Common Application.
- Official high school transcripts at any point after the end of your junior year.
- Official ACT or SAT test score(s). These need to be sent directly from the testing service or be included on your high school transcript. We will use your best ACT Composite score or your best individual Evidence-based Reading and Writing and Math SAT scores. Our ACT school code is 1084 and our SAT school code is 1484.
For any materials not being submitted electronically via The Common Application or your school's counseling office, you can mail or email them to us at:

Scholarships and Financial Aid
When we review your admission application, we also review your file for academic scholarships. Nothing more is required in order to receive an academic scholarship...you'll find out the amount you're receiving if you are admitted to the College.
Additionally, we offer competitive scholarships in a variety of disciplines (fine arts, sustainability, Latin, bagpipes, speech and debate, and Presbyterian Scholars). Auditions for these scholarships take place at our Meet Monmouth programs this fall (October 8, November 19) and at our invitation-only scholarship competition in late January. Interested in one of these? Let us know on your admission application or email your counselor.
For need-based financial aid, you can complete a FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016. Our FAFSA code is 001725.
