Registration Information

Advanced Summer 2020 Registration

Begins March 2, 2020

Continuing students in good academic standing will be invited to register EARLY for all Summer 2020 sessions Beginning on March 2, 2020. The WebAdvisor online listing of SUMMER COURSES is now available to students for planning purposes.

Students will be able to self-register using the Monmouth University Portal, myMU, provided that they have met with their advisor(s) and obtained permission to self-register. If students have not yet obtained advisor approval, they will need to register in-person at the Registrar’s Office.

Attendance Policy

Monmouth University believes that attendance is essential to success in academic courses. Therefore, class attendance is required. The University believes that learning is an interactive process dependent in part on the student and is not just a matter of the passive absorption of information. The University also believes that to benefit fully from their respective courses, students need to participate in, and contribute constructively to, the classroom experience, and, secondly, that the success of any course depends as much on what students contribute to the class as on what the instructor presents.

Grades in courses are normally based on academic performance (participation, contribution, and examination). However, individual faculty members may adopt reasonable regulations that additionally relate grades to class attendance. All professors must state their specific attendance policies in a written statement containing the pertinent course requirements and give it to the students during the first week of the semester. A student who, for any reason, may not be present at a particular class or laboratory is, nevertheless, responsible for adhering to the attendance requirements of the course.

Students are not permitted to attend classes for which they have not officially registered (as determined by the Office of the Registrar). If students attend without prior registration, they are subject to disciplinary actions, inclusive of suspension and/or dismissal, and will not be permitted to “retroactively” enroll.

Class Meeting Times and Abbreviations

Spring, 2020, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Semesters

Monmouth University follows a 14-week fall and spring semester schedule. Generally, the new semester format will have the daytime courses meet twice weekly, 80-minutes-per-class period. Evening courses may meet twice weekly, 80-minutes-per-class period, or once weekly, 170-175-minutes-per-class period. During the fourteenth week of the semester each class will meet once for at least 170 minutes. Some courses will meet for longer periods of time, please consult the online schedule to determine meeting times for a specific course. Class time will be complemented by at least 100 minutes each week of laboratory or outside assignments (or the equivalent thereof for semesters of different length) but may also be accomplished through an equivalent amount of academic work as established by Monmouth University, which may include additional class time, laboratory work, internships, practical studio work, and other forms of academic work.

Care should be taken to inspect course meeting times so as to avoid conflicts with other courses. The schedule worksheet was designed in order to help identify conflicts. There may be an overlap between the early evening and late afternoon courses. When using the schedule sheet, fill in the appropriate boxes for the courses that have been selected.

In addition, some classes may meet in the classroom and online as well. Students should contact the instructor for details when necessary or with specific class-related questions.

Days of the week are abbreviated as:

  • M – Monday
  • T – Tuesday
  • W – Wednesday
  • TH – Thursday

Course Cancellation Policy

The University reserves the right to cancel courses as required. Final determination rests with the Dean of the School where the course is housed.

Students registered for cancelled courses will be notified via their Monmouth University e-mail account.

Course Prerequisite Worksheet

If a course requires a prerequisite, successful registration requires that the exact course must be successfully completed or be in progress for the current term.

In some instances, students have substituted another course for a specified prerequisite. In these cases, WebAdvisor registration does NOT recognize that the prerequisite has been satisfied and will prevent registration for the intended course.

The Course Prerequisite Worksheet screen was developed to allow students to check their ability to register for specific courses and determine if they satisfy the prerequisite. This function is available through the Monmouth University Portal, myMU and the WebAdvisor for students menu.

If you have had a prerequisite substituted, contact your academic advisor and request the department register you for the course. You can use the Monmouth University Portal, myMU Registration menu to self-register for other courses for which you satisfy the exact prerequisite.

Courses With Prerequisites

Students who have not completed course prerequisites, or who are not registered for the prerequisite in a prior term, will be prevented from registering for the course. Only department chairs, or their appointed designates, can bypass course prerequisites for registration. Use the Course Prerequisite Worksheet screen on the Monmouth University Portal, myMU which is located on the WebAdvisor menu.

Course Type Codes

Certain courses and/or sections of courses have a type code stated next to the course catalog number in the schedule listing. Below are the type code abbreviations and the explanation of abbreviations. If you need a detailed description of any type code, please contact your advisor.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) establishes the rights of all students to limited access to certain records and information; to review, seek correction of, and add explanations to records; and to receive a hearing on allegations of violations. The University may not require a waiver of these rights in its admission, academic, or service requirements.

Information such as grades, financial records, and financial aid records may be released to parent(s) of Monmouth University students who are dependents of their parents as defined by the International Revenue Service (IRS). To establish parents’ eligibility to receive such a disclosure, the University must first obtain a copy of the parents’ most recent tax return (at least the first page where dependents are listed, the financial portions may be redacted). The student may also elect to grant access to grades, financial records, and financial aid records to their parent(s) by completing a “FERPA Waiver Release” form from their Etrieve forms account which is accessible from the Monmouth University student portal, myMu.

A copy of Student Records Policies and Procedures for Monmouth University, developed in support of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, may be obtained at the Office of the Registrar, Great Hall, Room 208, or from the Registrar’s FERPA Policy Web page.

Directory Information:
The following information may be released by the University without the student’s permission unless the student states that he or she does not want his or her directory information released. The student must submit this request using the FERPA – Do Not Disclose e-FORM. The “Do Not Disclose” will remain in place indefinitely unless the student submits a written request to have it removed.

A student who has three or more fourteenth week classes scheduled in one day, may request that one of them be rescheduled to another day. It is normally the middle one of the three that is rescheduled. The class should be given at a time agreed upon by both the student and the faculty member on or before the end of the fourteenth week class period.

It is the right of a student to review any graded examination in the presence of the instructor.

Diplomas are mailed to students approximately three weeks after the graduation date.

In those rare instances where a change to a student’s academic record allows for graduation after the graduation date, the deadline date for receipt of those changes by the Office of the Registrar is one week after the graduation date. The effective date of the change must be on or before the date of graduation. Changes received after that time will not be considered for the prior graduation. No grade changes will be posted to the academic record of students who graduated after they have been certified as graduated.

Students are encouraged to visit the Monmouth University Web site for current graduation information. In addition, the Application for Graduation may also be accessed via the Monmouth University Portal, myMU and e-FORMS.

Application for Graduation:

As you approach the completion of your program, students must review their academic audits through the Monmouth University student portal, myMU, in order to monitor their degree progress. Undergraduate students are required to submit an “Application for Graduation” to the Office of the Registrar after the completion of seventy-five (75) credits, graduate students are required to submit the application after the completion of eighteen (18) credits. If the applications are not received, all future registration activity will be blocked until the application has been received by the Registrar’s Office. The application is linked from the main menu of WebAdvisor for students which is accessible from the student portal.

Health Insurance

Good health plays an important role in academic success. Unexpected medical bills can threaten a student’s ability to complete their education should they be uninsured. Monmouth University strongly encourages all students to be covered under a health insurance plan with benefits in New Jersey.

Domestic students who are not covered under a health plan may be eligible to enroll through during the open enrollment period (November 1st-December 15th). If you have recently been dropped from a plan you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. An additional resource for New Jersey health coverage can be found on the Get Covered NJ Web site.

As a reminder, students can be medically seen for acute, common illnesses and injuries on campus at the Monmouth University Health Care Center at no charge. Health insurance is recommended when filling prescriptions, sending out lab work or utilizing local hospital/specialist services.

International students should be covered by a health insurance plan that has benefits within the United States. Students may choose from any number of plans on the market. Three examples of plans to choose from are provided below; find a plan that fits your needs.

To support campus health and wellness and to expedite any needed medical care, a copy of the current health insurance card should be maintained as part of the student health profile. Students should scan and upload their health insurance card to a private and confidential health profile through the Student Health Portal found in the myMU web access.

  • Scan an image of your health insurance card. Scanned images MUST be saved as .gif, .png, .tiff, .tif, .jpg, .jpeg. Documents MUST be saved as either .txt or .pdf, NOT as a Word Document.
  • Log into myMU with your Monmouth user i.d. and password.
  • Select the tab, I Need To…”.
  • Select “Student Health Portal” and log in with your Monmouth user ID (use “s” in front of the i.d. number) and MU password.
  • Select the Upload tab, choose Health Insurance Card from the drop down selection, select your scanned file and choose Upload.

Please contact Health Services at 732-571-3464 for further information.

Independent Study/Experiential Education Applications

Students MUST arrange to have all appropriate paperwork completed. Failure to coordinate submission of the authorized applications to the Office of the Registrar may jeopardize your registration, graduation, and financial aid status.

The Experiential Education and the Undergraduate and Graduate Independent Study applications are advisor-initiated e-FORMS, please contact your advisor for assistance.

Students will receive a specific date and time indicating their first opportunity to access priority registration. The assignment of times for undergraduate students will be based on the number of completed credits.

Students within the same category of completed credits will be randomly selected and assigned to their timeframe. Individual date and time information will be e-mailed to each student’s Monmouth University e-mail account and will be displayed continually on their Monmouth University Portal, myMU and WebAdvisor account.

Beginning April 2, 2020 students will be able to self-register for the Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 semesters (note that Summer, 2020 registration is continuing as part of the Advanced Summer Registration program). Students who do not obtain approval or who are on academic probation must register in person with their academic department or at the Office of the Registrar .

Information regarding Priority Registration for 2020/2021 will be e-mailed to students in late February/early March from the Office of the Registrar. All details to students will be provided therein.

Program Change Period


Students should consult with their academic advisors before making changes in their course schedules. Program changes can be made directly with your academic advisor, First Year Advising or in the Office of the Registrar. WebAdvisor for students is available through the Monmouth University portal, myMU for those students who have been granted access to use it for scheduling.

When changes are made during the Program Change Period (dates listed below), it is expected that changes that create additional tuition charges are paid for at the time of the change. The official date of a program change is the date it is received in the Office of the Registrar. In those instances where the change is processed by the advisor onto the computerized advisor assisted system, or the drop is processed directly by the student into WebAdvisor for students, the official date is the date the change is entered.

At the conclusion of the Program Change Period, students can add courses with the permission of the instructor and the department chair. Students who wish to “drop” a course after this period must follow withdrawal instructions. Dropped courses are not processed or allowed after the conclusion of the Program Change Period.

Monmouth University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action institution in accordance with civil rights legislation and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, affectional or sexual orientation, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, marital status, age, liability for service in the Armed Forces of the United States, veteran status, or status as an individual with a disability, and provides a work environment free of bias based on such categories. This policy applies to every phase of our operation, including recruitment, hiring, promotion, reclassification, transfer, compensation, benefits, termination, layoff and return from layoff, social and recreational programs, and any other aspect of employment.

This policy of the University is consistent with the requirements and objectives set forth in federal and state laws against discrimination to include: Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.

Student Status – Full-Time Undergraduates

Monmouth University expects all full-time undergraduate students to be registered for 12 to 18 credits by the end of the add/drop period. Failure to have a full-time credit load can jeopardize your financial aid.

Study Abroad – Official Monmouth Programs

Monmouth University strongly encourages students to study abroad by offering Monmouth curated programs in Argentina, England, Germany, Italy, and Spain. This is an excellent opportunity for students to globalize their education while living, learning, and traveling abroad.

  • Florence, Italy, Four-Week Summer Program
  • Cadiz, Spain, Six-Week Summer Program

The following Monmouth semester programs listed below are available during the Fall, 2020 and Spring, 2021 semesters:

  • Buenos Aires, Argentina with ISA (International Studies Abroad) and Universidad De Belgrano
  • Heidelberg, Germany at the European Study Center and SRH University
  • London, England, at Regents College
  • Sydney, Australia, at Macquaire University
  • Florence, Italy at Lorenzo de’Medici Institute

Requirements for consideration:

  • Sophomore or above status
  • GPA of 2.75
  • Recommendation form completed by a faculty or staff member
  • Must be clear of judicial probation
  • Must be clear of academic probation

Students must meet these criteria at the time of application and immediately prior to studying abroad. Failure to do so will result in the student’s removal from the study abroad program.

For additional information, please visit the Global Education Office on the first floor of the Rebecca Stafford Student Center. The Global Education Office may be reached by phone at 732-923-4768 or by email. You may also visit the Study Abroad Web site to obtain additional information and resources.

Commencing Summer 2020, students attending the Study Abroad programs will have all grades listed on their transcript, and those grades calculated into their grade point average (GPA). Institutional credit will be granted for all earned grades.

Study Abroad – All Other Programs

Students planning to attend a non-Monmouth University study abroad program are required to obtain permission from the Monmouth University prior to enrolling in the program. Students must first apply on the student portal and then complete the online Etrieve Form (e-FORM) “Permission to Study Abroad (non-MU Program),” which is accessible from Etrieve Central (e-FORMS) in the student portal. Students should review and familiarize themselves with the University policy and guidelines provided on the form and in the online University Catalog.

The student must meet the study abroad requirements as stated above in the “STUDY ABROAD – OFFICIAL MONMOUTH PROGRAMS” section and must also receive permission in advance from the registrar, department chair, and school dean. Permission may be granted for free elective courses outside the major, not for core or major courses. Courses from two-year colleges will not be substituted for Monmouth University upper-level (300-400) courses. In addition, students within 32 credits of graduation are not eligible for this permission.

Please note that the non-Monmouth University study abroad program must be offered by an approved or accredited U.S. institution of higher education. Students are required to have the accredited U.S. institution of higher education send an official transcript to the Registrar’s Office within 90 days after completion of the authorized course(s).

Students who execute a financial aid consortium agreement will have all grades listed on their Monmouth University transcript, but the grades will not be calculated into their grade point average (GPA). Institutional credit will be granted for all earned grades. If the student does not use a financial aid consortium agreement, the courses will be posted as transfer (“T”) credit for all grades of “C” or better. There is not GPA impact with “T” grades.

Summer Permission
