  • Overview of Admissions Process

    Before students submit an application, please review the steps outlined below.

    Step 1:  Online Application & Personal Essay

    Students will need to complete and submit an online application, including a 500 word personal essay detailing why they are pursuing a graduate degree.

    Step 2:  Submit Credentials

    After completing and submitting the online application, students will need to provide the Monroe College admissions office at either campus location with the following:

    • Undergraduate transcript(s)
    • Professional Resume
    • Two Letters of Recommendation
    • $50 Admissions Fee (we accept check, money order, certified bank draft or cash)

    Step 3: Admissions Interview

    To complete the application, students will need to schedule an interview with the Dean of the Graduate School to discuss their educational goals, career aspirations and outside interests. Students who live outside of the New York City Metropolitan area may conduct their interview over the phone. Students applying for the Online MBA Program may conduct their interview on campus or via Skype. Please call the campus of your choice to schedule an interview after completing steps one and two. 

    Step 4: Registration

    Once students have been accepted to the college, they will receive an official letter of acceptance in the mail and will need to schedule an appointment to complete Financial Aid packaging and registration. All incoming students are required to attend the new student orientation that occurs prior to the beginning of each semester. 

    Step 5: Foundation Classes

    Students who have not completed an undergraduate course in the subject area they are pursuing are required to take “Foundation Classes” and pass a proficiency test. Foundation Classes are offered online or on campus during a weekend either before the semester begins or early into the semester. Admissions counselors will advise students as to which classes they may be required to take. Please note that there is a separate tuition for Foundation Classes.
