Since its founding in 1933, Monroe College has emphasized real-world understanding as a key element of a student's academic journey. The college combines innovative academics with a signature cooperative education program, experiential learning, as well as a burgeoning study abroad program.
This unique learning environment makes a Monroe education like no other. The incorporation of course work and real-world experience develops students' critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills while introducing them to new perspectives in their fields. As a result, undergraduates and graduates are better prepared for the success in their careers and ultimately, in life. Monroe College students are able to take courses over a three semester a year academic calendar. This enables students to complete 45 credits in one year.
The College offers ample financial aid to students seeking the benefits of a Monroe education, through a combination of need-based aid, scholarships and grants.
