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 being delivered and we are sending out financial aid offers to our admitted students whose FAFSA is actionable. Admitted students should check their email (email address provided on your application for admission) regularly to get important messages. Check out our FAFSA updates page for updates as we navigate this together. 

The enrollment deposit is submitted online through your Tartan Portal. Students may login using the email address and password connected to their account. Once logged in, please go to the Admitted Student Checklist section and “Reply to Your Offer of Admission” where you can select, I’m ready to be a Fighting Scot, and I ACCEPT my offer of admission at Monmouth College. Following that selection, you will be prompted to enter your payment information.

Your confidence in your decision matters to us.. Scots support future Scots – and we’re here to support you and your family!

Make sure to login to your Tartan Portal

The 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.

Once available, you can review your financial aid offer and get access to other financial aid resources using Self-Service, a portal available to all Monmouth College students where you will take care of all your college business (this is a different portal than the Tartan Portal, which is used exclusively for the application and enrollment process). To access Self-Service, you will need your Monmouth College Student Account login credentials, sent to you via email with the subject line - Important: Your Username and Temporary Password for Monmouth College.

Preparing for your Advising/Registration Meeting:

Academic advising and registration (making your fall class schedule!) will be available to deposited students through June 20.

In advance of your one-on-one virtual advising appointment, we need you to do four things:

First: Complete your academic advising questionnaire to aid in the holistic advising model used at Monmouth College. This questionnaire will be available in your Tartan Portal and must be completed at least 2 days before your scheduled appointment.

Second: Sign up for and complete the foreign language placement exam and/or math placement exam (if requested). These exams can be completed online and help us determine your requirements and class schedule. Details will be made available in your Tartan Portal prior to your advising appointment and must be completed at least 2 days prior to your scheduled appointment.

Third: Review your admitted student checklist within the Tartan Portal to ensure we have an updated copy of your high school transcript on file with grades from the fall 2023 semester (official or unofficial is fine for registration). This helps us determine math placement, especially for students who applied test –optional and did not submit official ACT or SAT scores.

Fourth:Submit your Payment & Disclosure statement available in your self-service portal prior to your advising appointment. The statement can be found under user options (the person icon), then choose required agreements.

You may also want to read up on information about required courses, elective courses, and recommended courses by major.

Final High School Transcripts
– due August 1
Make sure to request your official and final high school transcript from your school counselor or registrar (this may be part of a survey you complete as part of graduation).

Immunization Records/Health Forms- due August 1
All incoming students are required to submit immunization paperwork before the fall semester, plus forms and documents required for incoming student athletes (see Student Athletes tab on the website).
Submit AP/IB Test Results and College Transcripts (if applicable) - recommended by August 1
If you have taken AP tests and/or IB exams and/or enrolled in college-level courses during high school (Dual Credit, etc.), please make sure any and all applicable exam scores and/or OFFICIAL college transcripts are sent as soon as possible to the Office of the Registrar for official credit evaluation. Learn more about our AP, IB and Dual Credit policies.
