For many students and their families, paying for college is a complex task that requires considerable planning. Monmouth University will work with students and parents to make that process less intimidating. With assistance from the Financial Aid Office, students can pursue a range of options to help them afford a quality education. The first step in the planning process is to complete the Net Price Calculator - this will give you an estimate of your eligibility for financial aid and your estimated out of pocket costs. Next, we encourage you to visit Access Ready, an interactive website that will help you navigate the financial aid process.
Many undergraduate students are eligible for some form of financial assistance. To determine eligibility, students first need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial aid awards are processed annually and offered based upon continued financial need, enrollment status, availability of funds, and maintenance of satisfactory academic progress.
The financial aid options available to undergraduates include the following:
Each financial aid package is individualized and tailored to the student; there is no cookie-cutter package. In essence, each student receives something different. The Financial Aid Office works with students to come up with the best solution—not only for them, but for their families, as well.
With so many options and possibilities, the financial aid process may seem overwhelming. But Monmouth’s financial aid counselors are available to ensure that it goes as smoothly as possible. Students and their families are encouraged to call 732-571-3463, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Financial Aid Office for assistance. Sometimes having a person to talk to can make all the difference.
