Services and Activities
Each semester there is a four-day orientation to familiarize new international students with the campus, academic departments, policies and procedures, campus services and activities, and much more.
Airport Pickup and Housing Assistance
Our office arranges to pick up students from Newark Liberty International Airport and drive them to campus, as well as helping students locate apartments and houses. During the fall semester, new students may receive free on-campus temporary housing as needed.
Monmouth Mentor Program
This program is specifically designed to assist international students transitioning to college life in the U.S. Mentors are student leaders on campus who partner with new international students to establish a relationship where both parties learn and grow from each other.
International students are welcome to privately discuss any concerns with trained professionals in the Office of Global Education. Referrals and access to other resources are also available.
Throughout the academic year, several workshops are available to international students including, but not limited to, academic integrity, resume writing and job interviewing skills, and self-care and wellness.
