Consumer Information

Below is a listing of consumer information that must be made available to all current and prospective students in compliance with federal student financial aid requirements. Monmouth University makes every effort to ensure that it does not misrepresent the nature of its educational program, its financial charges, or the employability of its graduates.

Each topic gives a brief description of or leads to information that must be disclosed by law. Hard copies of these materials are available upon request. If a student desires a hard copy, or feels that a misrepresentation has occurred, students should contact the Director of Financial Aid at or by phone at 732-571-3463, during the University’s normal hours of operation.

FERPA Information

In carrying out their assigned responsibilities, many offices at Monmouth University collect and maintain information about students. Although these records belong to the University, both University policy and federal law accord students a number of rights concerning these records. The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) establishes the rules and regulations regarding access to and disclosure of student records.
