Enrollment Timeline

Welcome to the Fighting Scots family!

Enrollment Timeline For First-Year Students

Deposit Deadline: June 1

The enrollment deposit date for 2024 has been extended to June 1. FAFSA results are now expected to arrive in mid-March. This impacts all colleges and universities nationwide. We’re actively adjusting deadlines and planned enrollment-related activities to accommodate the deposit extension. Check out our FAFSA updates page for updates as we navigate this together. 

Your confidence in your decision matters to us. We will continue to add information to this site once official financial aid offers are available. Scots support future Scots – and we’re here to support you and your family!

Make sure to login to your Tartan Portal

Your Tartan Portal is the best place to track your progress towards becoming a Fighting Scot! Remember to look at your Admitted Student Checklist within your Tartan Portal to make sure you are aware of all required items for enrollment.
You will also need your Monmouth College student account information (username and password). Also, be sure to have established your account with
Multi-Factor Authentication.
(Monmouth College student electronic account information will be emailed to all committed students beginning in February. This is a separate account log- in from the Tartan Portal. All admitted students, regardless of commitment status, will begin receiving Monmouth College student electronic account information once FAFSA results begin to arrive).


Our enrollment timeline is based on the expected arrival of FAFSA results in mid-March. We adjusted our previously planned enrollment timeline to account for the new June 1 enrollment deposit date. If we learn of further delays from the US Department of Education, we will adjust this timeline as needed.
