The Center for Student Success is offering academic support virtually during Monmouth University’s remote learning and instruction period.

The Offices of Academic Advising and Transfer and Undeclared Services will continue to support student and academic advisor advising needs and questions while the University works remotely. Both offices are regularly monitoring voicemails and will return calls as soon as possible. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need academic advising support during this difficult time.
First Year Advising
First Year Advising is available to assist first-year students with all first year advising related questions. First year students may email their First Year Advisor directly for virtual assistance, or they may email email@example.com, and an advising administrator will get back to them as soon as possible.
First-year students who need major and career advising may email Dr. Noah Hart for a virtual appointment – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transfer and Undeclared Services
The Transfer Services Office is available to assist with all transfer related issues and queries. The best way to contact our office is via email at email@example.com. What’s more, we are regularly monitoring voicemails to our office line (732-571-3588) and will return calls as soon as possible.

Department of Disability Services (DDS)
Efforts will continue to provide accommodations and services in the weeks ahead to students who are registered with the DDS office. Staff are working with Information Management regarding accessibility to all online course materials and use of assistive technology. Students with physical disabilities, hearing impairments and visual impairments who may encounter technical issues should immediately report any issues/concerns to the DDS staff so they can work with Information Support to ensure full accessibility. The Department of Disability Services staff will be responding to all phone calls and emails from students, parents and others who may contact the office. In addition, they will assist professors with accommodating students remotely and scheduling online exams with accommodations. DDS administrators will also be checking their MU email in office/remotely/regularly and responding to any student on their caseload who contacts them.

Writing Services is now using an eCampus shell titled “Community – Online Writing Services for Undergraduates” to conduct all Writing Services appointments for undergraduates as we are providing remote instruction. At this time, and with much support provided by student writing assistants, there will be no face-to-face writing assistance sessions while the University is operating with remote instruction.
How it will work? First, undergraduates should make an appointment with an available writing assistant by either: (1) going online at accudemia.monmouth.edu; or (2) emailing us at email@example.com.
If emailing, students should email the following requests: date of appointment, time of appointment, the class it is for, the faculty member teaching the course, and to the best of their knowledge which formatting style they must use.
After making the appointment, the student should then submit both their assignment and their paper (it is ok to submit a prewriting artifact, such as an outline, an annotation, etc.) via the new eCampus shell to the “Assignments” dropbox folder. The writing assistant with whom the student made the appointment will then access the submissions at the appointed time and use the feedback mechanism in the Assignments window to provide holistic feedback to the student. Students may submit no more than one paper per week (this is subject to change depending on tutor availability).
Graduate students wishing to avail themselves of this remote service will continue to submit their paper through the eCampus shell titled “Community – Online Writing Services.” Students may submit no more than one paper per week (this is subject to change depending on tutor availability). Writing Services will do our best to maintain our 72-hour turnaround promise for providing the student with feedback.
