Cost and Financial Aid

Summer Session courses are $1,400 per course ($350 per .25 course credit) including textbooks. Summer session bills will be generated on or before May 1 with a bill due date of June 1. 

Monmouth scholarships and grants are not available in the summer, but students may be eligible for other types of financial aid if they filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students who receive a Pell Grant during the academic year may be eligible for Pell Grant funding in the summer. Students with unused loan eligibility may also elect to cover some summer expenses with federal loans. 


Registration for summer classes will be available beginning Monday, April 5, at the same time as registration for Fall 2021 courses. Talk with your academic advisor about summer options when you discuss your fall plans.
