A Real World Education
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 internship program, experiential learning and in some cases a study abroad program.
This unique learning environment provides students with an 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.
Finding the Time
For many of our Adult students that have either waited to begin or complete their degree program, finding the time to attend classes may often be a hurdle. That’s why Monroe has developed a number of schedules designed to help students attend class while maintaining career and family commitments. Although all classes are not available all of the time, Monroe's scheduling options means that for most people they can find a schedule that fits their life. Students who work full-time can attend class a few nights a week and on the weekend. Parents with school children can take a class early in the morning, which start as early as 8:45 a.m. and end as late as 10:45 p.m. Students can select from any combination of day, evening, and weekend classes. Of course, Online classes allow students to the flexibility to attend class at any time of the day or night.
Generous Transfer Policy
Monroe provides students with an opportunity to earn credit in a variety of ways including: credits earned at a prior institution, examinations and life experience. Students may also earn credit if they were in the military or attended Police or Correctional Training Academies.
Students have the opportunity to earn a degree in some of the fastest growing fields through one of our seven schools. Monroe also offers students the opportunity to specialize in a specific area by earning either a concentration or minor. Whatever you choose, you’ll know that you’ll be both challenged and supported by a group of professors that often come from industry andhave a singular focus of making sure that you are academically successful.
Unlike most colleges, which award a Baccalaureate degree after completion of four years, Monroe has a three-semester calendar that provides you the opportunity to complete your degree more quickly than at another institution.
Our campuses provide for a wide range of experiences for students.
