  • Overview of Admissions Process

    Before you submit your application, please review the steps outlined below.

    Step 1:  Online Application & Essay

    You will need to complete and submit an online application, which includes a personal essay.

    Step 2:  Submit Credentials

    After completing and submitting your online application, you will need to provide the Monroe College admissions office at either campus location with the following:

    Step 3: Admissions Interview

    To complete your application, you will need to schedule an interview with an admissions counselor from Monroe College to discuss your educational goals, career aspirations and outside interests. Students who live outside of the New York City Metropolitan area may conduct their interview over the phone. Please call the campus of your choice to schedule an interview after completing steps one and two.

    Step 5: After You’ve Been Accepted

    If you’ve received an acceptance letter for the August Orientation (freshmen) or Fall 2018 semester, congratulations! We look forward to welcoming you to campus. 

    2018 high school graduates should check our special section for newly accepted students and join our Facebook Group for newly admitted students. 

    Your next steps are very important. 

    First, let us know if you will be joining us this Fall. We hope it’s a “yes!” confirm acceptance

    Second, we ask that you come in to speak with a financial aid counselor if you have not done so already. There are many federal and state tuition assistance programs available to help make college affordable for you and your family. Our experts will help you understand what programs are available, their eligibility requirements, and how to apply for them. They will also know about important deadlines. 

    Third, you must confirm any institutional aid (scholarship or grant awards from the College) by their specified deadline. Recipients of the Presidential Partnership Scholarship, for example, must confirm their scholarship no later than May 15, 2018.  Students who miss this deadline will still benefit from certain aspects of the Presidential Partnership program. Their scholarship and financial aid awards, however, may not cover all tuition expenses.

    Fourth, you must take a placement test to determine the appropriate Math and English courses for enrollment. Choose a day and time that is convenient for you and let us know when to expect you by registering here. 

    Information about class registration and new student orientation will then follow by email and text.
