Amplify your future at Monmouth University 

At Monmouth University, students experience a big-school atmosphere and a personalized education through our exciting Division I athletics, professional connections, and hands-on research opportunities. Our focus on real-time skill building allows students to work closely with distinguished faculty and receive the opportunities and support they need to prepare for post-graduation success. Our coastal campus lies an hour outside of New York City and close to neighboring Asbury Park and Red Bank, providing students with meaningful college experiences and expansive internship opportunities. At Monmouth, you don’t just build on your existing passion, you amplify your future.

As one of The Princeton Review’s “387 Best Colleges,” Monmouth is rising as a highly ranked private, non-sectarian, Division I institution. Which is why students from around the Northeast, and the rest of the US—30 states and 30 countries actually—continue to choose Monmouth as their academic home. Our diverse student body of approximately 4,100 undergraduate and 1,350 graduate students make Monmouth large enough to have dozens of majors and degree programs and a breadth of student resources, yet still small enough that instant connections can evolve into life-long friendships and professors can quickly become important mentors.

Monmouth’s engaging and experiential learning process also includes opportunities for students to create real-world connections from experiences through the Kislak Real Estate Institute, the Urban Coast Institute, the Bruce Springsteen Archives and the Center for American Music, the Institute for Global Understanding, Center for the Arts, the Monmouth University Polling Institute, and more.

Students can also participate in over 120 active clubs and organizations at Monmouth, including intramurals and recreational clubs, fraternities and sororities, and media organizations.

The University offers many types of financial aid to students, and many factors are considered, so you are encouraged to explore them all. Monmouth partners with students to develop a plan to manage tuition and fees and other educational expenses, guiding you throughout the process.

Visit our 170-acre campus, just a mile from the beach, and you’ll quickly feel our warm, friendly atmosphere and appreciate our historic architecture mingled among our modern academic buildings and residence halls. 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 could be the perfect fit for you.
