Transfer Applicants

Wherever you’ve been, wherever life has taken you, we’re glad the journey has brought you here.

We do everything we can to make the transfer process as clear and as worry-free as possible.

Transfer students bring so much — diverse experiences, unique perspectives, new stories to tell — to the Monmouth community. It takes courage to take the next step, and it also takes a community to support you through the transition when you decide the time is right.

Please note: Current high school seniors earning college credit prior to their high school graduation should apply as first-time freshmen, including those who will earn an associate’s degree at the same time as their high school diploma.

To be considered for enrollment, all applicants must submit:

  1. The Monmouth College Application

Transfer credits

We are committed to making the process of applying and enrolling as smooth as possible. Once we receive your transcripts, we will complete a thorough transcript evaluation to help you understand how your classes will transfer to Monmouth and help you build a plan towards graduation.

Whether you’re transferring to Monmouth from a community college or a four-year college or university, you’ll find home here. Hundreds of other current Scots have come to us the same way, and we welcomed them like family from day one.
