• A Personalized Approach to College Affordability

    A Monmouth University education is an investment in yourself that will pay off for the rest of your life, and we help students access the resources needed to make it happen.  We will partner with you to develop a plan to manage your educational expenses, taking into consideration your individual financial situation.

    Every year, thousands of our students receive financial aid packages.  Those packages typically include scholarships, grants, student loans, and work-study that may be applied toward tuition and fees, room and board or living expenses, books, and other personal expenses.

    Here are some facts to consider about the financial aid packages created for Monmouth’s undergraduates last year:

    • 97% received some form of financial aid.
    • About 92% received a scholarship or grant (federal, state, or University).
    • The average scholarship/grant package was $15,000.
    • The average financial aid package, including student loans and work-study, was approximately $24,700.
    • The more than $50 million in University grants and scholarships was awarded; this places Monmouth among the more affordable private universities in New Jersey. 


    To get a preliminary estimate of your financial aid package and out-of-pocket costs, please take a few moments to complete our Net Price Calculator.  To receive an official offer of financial aid or financial aid package, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov; the FAFSA should be completed as soon after January 1 of the student’s senior year as possible. 

    We have also partnered with Great Lakes & Affiliates to bring you Access Ready, an interactive website designed to give you the tools and information you need to navigate the financial aid process.  Websites, though, are no substitute for personalized counseling.  Our knowledgeable counselors are here to guide students along the way and are just a phone call or email away.
