Service Animal & Emotional Support Animals (ESAs)

Monmouth College is committed to creating and sustaining a successful campus community for students who experience the world in fundamentally different ways. Though students are not permitted to bring pets on campus, the College is committed to providing a supportive environment for students with disabilities as well as complying with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended (ADAAA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Fair Housing Act that allows service animals. 

The College is also in compliance with the Fair Housing Act (FHA) law for persons with an appropriately documented disability who may keep an emotional support animal in the individual’s dwelling when there is an established need for the therapeutic nature of the animal that is connected to the individual’s disability.
