Official documents: Monmouth requires a complete set of official or attested documents, including all transcripts, marksheets, and degree certificates. These must be sent by the student’s undergraduate school. In some cases, we accept an official evaluation of the student’s education provided by a reputable agency. All documents Monmouth receives must come to us in an unopened envelope from the university or agency. If the official documents are in a language other than English, they must be accompanied by a reputable translation.

In addition to meeting the standard requirements for admission, international students must also complete the following steps:
- Complete the Application for Form I-20 and Affidavit of Financial Support, which is to be notarized. This document is essential in order to receive a student visa (F-1), which allows the student to study in the U.S. Certified evidence that there are adequate funds to meet all expenses during the first year of study must be present. This is part of the Form I-20
- Transfer students with F-1 status who have attended an American college or university and want to transfer to Monmouth University, will need to submit the application for Form I-20, as well as an F-1 Transfer Request form.
Our dedicated Office of Global Education is available to assist you through any challenges you may face during the visa process.
