Begins March 7, 2016
Continuing students in good academic standing will be invited to register EARLY for all Summer 2016 sessions Beginning on March 7, 2016. The WebAdvisor online listing of SUMMER COURSES is now available to students for planning purposes.
Students will be able to self-register using the Monmouth University Portal, myMU, Registration component of WebAdvisor provided that they have met with their advisor(s) and obtained permission to self-register. If students have not yet obtained advisor approval, they will need to register in-person at the Registrar's Office.
Monmouth University believes that attendance is essential to success in academic courses. Therefore, class attendance is required. The University believes that learning is an interactive process dependent in part on the student and is not just a matter of the passive absorption of information. The University also believes that to benefit fully from their respective courses, students need to participate in, and contribute constructively to, the classroom experience, and, secondly, that the success of any course depends as much on what students contribute to the class as on what the instructor presents.
Grades in courses are normally based on academic performance (participation, contribution, and examination). However, individual faculty members may adopt reasonable regulations that additionally relate grades to class attendance. All professors must state their specific attendance policies in a written statement containing the pertinent course requirements and give it to the students during the first week of the semester. A student who, for any reason, may not be present at a particular class or laboratory is, nevertheless, responsible for adhering to the attendance requirements of the course.
Students are not permitted to attend classes for which they have not officially registered (as determined by the Office of the Registrar). If students attend without prior registration, they are subject to disciplinary actions, inclusive of suspension and/or dismissal, and will not be permitted to “retroactively” enroll.
The Monmouth University Campus Map is available online. Below is a list of classroom building codes.
Spring, 2016, Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 Semesters
Monmouth University follows a 14-week fall and spring semester schedule. Generally, the new semester format will have the daytime courses meet twice weekly, 80-minutes-per-class period. Evening courses may meet twice weekly, 80-minutes-per-class period, or once weekly, 170-175-minutes-per-class period. During the fourteenth week of the semester each class will meet once for at least 170 minutes. Some courses will meet for longer periods of time, please consult the online schedule to determine meeting times for a specific course. Class time will be complemented by at least 100 minutes each week of laboratory or outside assignments (or the equivalent thereof for semesters of different length) but may also be accomplished through an equivalent amount of academic work as established by Monmouth University, which may include additional class time, laboratory work, internships, practical studio work, and other forms of academic work.
Care should be taken to inspect course meeting times so as to avoid conflicts with other courses. The schedule worksheet was designed in order to help identify conflicts. There may be an overlap between the early evening and late afternoon courses. When using the schedule sheet, fill in the appropriate boxes for the courses that have been selected.
In addition, some classes may meet in the classroom and online as well. Students should contact the instructor for details when necessary or with specific class-related questions.
Days of the week are abbreviated as:
The University reserves the right to cancel courses as required. Final determination rests with the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Students registered for cancelled courses will be notified via their Monmouth University e-mail account.
If a course requires a prerequisite, WEBregistration requires that the exact course must be successfully completed or be in progress for the current term.
In some instances, students have substituted another course for a specified prerequisite. In these cases, WEBregistration does NOT recognize that the prerequisite has been satisfied and will prevent registration for the intended course.
The Course Prerequisite Worksheet screen was developed to allow students to check their ability to register for specific courses and determine if they satisfy the prerequisite. This function is available through the Monmouth University Portal, myMU and the WebAdvisor menu.
If you have had a prerequisite substituted, contact your academic advisor and request the department register you for the course. You can use the Monmouth University Portal, myMU Registration menu to self-register for other courses for which you satisfy the exact prerequisite.
Students who have not completed course prerequisites, or who are not registered for the prerequisite in a prior term, will be prevented from registering for the course. Only department chairs, or their appointed designates, can bypass course prerequisites for registration. Use the Course Prerequisite Worksheet screen on the Monmouth University Portal, myMU which is located on the WebAdvisor menu.
Certain courses and/or sections of courses have a type code stated next to the course catalog number in the schedule listing. Below are the type code abbreviations and the explanation of abbreviations. If you need a detailed description of any type code, please contact your advisor.
These codes can be used to search for specific course descriptions online. Simply access the Monmouth University Portal, myMU on the student WebAdvisor menu and then select Registration and then Course Descriptions.
Curriculum charts for specific programs of study are available using the Monmouth University Portal, myMU and WebAdvisor. Students are encouraged to utilize their curriculum chart, in conjunction with their academic audit, when preparing their course schedule for Registration.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) establishes the rights of all students to limited access to certain records and information; to review, seek correction of, and add explanations to records; and to receive a hearing on allegations of violations. The University may not require a waiver of these rights in its admission, academic, or service requirements.
Information such as grades, financial records, and financial aid records may be released to parent(s) of Monmouth University students who are dependents of their parents as defined by the International Revenue Service (IRS), provided that the parent(s) furnish proof of such dependency, or the student completes a "FERPA Waiver Release" form. The FERPA form can be submitted via the student's e-FORMS account which is accessible from WEBstudent.
A copy of Student Records Policies and Procedures for Monmouth University, developed in support of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, may be obtained at the Office of the Registrar, Wilson Hall, Room 208, or from the Registrar's FERPA Policy Web page.
Directory Information:The following information may be released by the University without the student's permission unless the student states that he or she does not want his or her directory information released. The student must submit this request using the FERPA - Do Not Disclose e-FORM. The "Do Not Disclose" will remain in place indefinitely unless the student submits a written request to have it removed.
All students and faculty will be provided with an individualized fourteenth week schedule that will be posted on their WebAdvisor account, approximately two weeks prior to the fourteenth week.

Criteria eligibility for voluntary enrollment is: Full-time undergraduates taking 12 or more credits, undergraduate students in their student teaching rotation taking 9 or more credits, and full-time graduate students taking 9 or more credits. Students who meet these criteria may also enroll dependents.
Students who experience a change in situation, such as being dropped by a parental insurance plan, may be eligible to voluntarily enroll in the health insurance plan after the open enrollment period. In such cases, the student should contact the insurance company concerning their situation to determine eligibility.
Intercollegiate sport athletes, cheerleaders, and international students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the University health insurance plan if proof of insurance is not provided by the established add/drop period.
Students MUST arrange to have all appropriate paperwork completed. Failure to present the authorized application to the Office of the Registrar may jeopardize your registration, graduation, and financial aid status.
