A.   Yes, students who successfully complete the Summer Transitional Program will receive housing if their housing contract and housing deposits are received by May 1.

Q.   What is the financial aid process for students in the Summer Transitional Program?
A.   Students who submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 30 will receive an estimated financial aid package in early April. This will reflect aid the student may expect to receive should he or she continue into the fall.

Loans may be available to students for the summer. Students interested in loans for the summer coursework of the Summer Transitional Program should contact the Financial Aid Office once they have submitted their enrollment deposit.

 
Q.   Are students in the Summer Transitional Program eligible for any academic grants?
A.   All students who successfully complete the Summer Transitional Program and enroll in the fall will receive a $1,500 incentive grant, per year, for the duration of their undergraduate full-time enrollment at Monmouth University so long as a 2.0 or better cumulative grade point average is maintained. The grant will not apply to summer-study, and students must meet the minimum GPA to renew.
 
Q.   If a student does not successfully complete the Summer Transitional Program with a 2.25 or better GPA, is it possible to enroll at Monmouth University for the spring semester?
A.   If a student does not successfully complete the Summer Transitional Program, a counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admission will work with the student to plan for future enrollment.
