Transfer Students

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

We are committed to making the transfer process as clear and as worry-free as possible.

Monmouth College was named to the Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll for the third straight year in 2023 in recognition of the many transfer pathways offered, competitive scholarships for transfer students, and strong partnerships with community colleges. This recognition is reserved for the top 25% of the highest-rated colleges by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

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.

How to apply

To be considered for enrollment, all applicants must submit:

  1. The Monmouth College Application
  2. Official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended

Application Deadlines

We’ll begin application review for 2024 applicants in late September and will review all applications on a rolling basis after that, in advance of each deadline.

Are you a former Monmouth student who left and is now looking to return? No need to re-apply as a transfer student. Just complete our readmit application below & the Registrar’s Office will work with you to create a new schedule.

Readmit students returning to Monmouth will receive their original scholarship and Monmouth financial aid, even if they have earned credits elsewhere in the meantime.

Transfer scholarships

In addition to our Dean’s Scholarships, which transfer students are automatically considered for when they apply, we recognize students who are current members of Phi Theta Kappa with an additional scholarship.

Students with a 3.0 GPA or higher are eligible to apply for our Wallace Founders Award to receive a scholarship.

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.
