International Applicants

Monmouth has a long history of welcoming students from every part of the world. We’d love to welcome you to the Monmouth family.

How to apply

To be considered for admission, all applicants should submit:

  1. An application. International first-year or transfer applicants to Monmouth should first submit an application for admission by completing either the Common Application or the Monmouth College application. Students only need to complete one, not both, of these options.
  2. Copies of your official transcripts and exam marks from all secondary schools and institutions of higher education attended. All documents must be accompanied by a translation into English if the original documents in another language.
  3. Demonstration of English proficiency. Monmouth College requires a minimum TOEFL score of 79 IBT or 550 PBT, a minimum 6.5 IELTS score, or a minimum 100 Duolingo test score. This requirement may be waived for students who attend a high school in which the primary language of instruction is English.
  4. Scholarships. Merit scholarships are awarded at the time of admission based on academic performance. Scholarship amounts typically range from $20,0000 to $30,000 USD per year (up to 4 years); these amounts represent approximately 45% to 70% of tuition costs only (there are additional costs for housing, food, travel, books and other educational expenses).
