First Year Advising + Support

First Year Advising is a key resource for first year students at Monmouth University. First Year Advising also works in cooperation with various University divisions to ensure that first year students experience the challenges, opportunities, and support needed to succeed at Monmouth.

Students are encouraged to partake in academic and co-curricular activities that are sponsored by this office to promote their growth and learning.

The First Year Advising office is a place students can contact with any college-related questions and concerns. Students will be assisted by a welcoming and well-informed staff that provides clear information about what to expect at Monmouth and what the University expects of its students.
