High School Student
Application. You must submit your application online at monroecollege.edu/apply. You'll first create a Monroe ID in your application portal and share key information like your areas of interest.
Essay. The essay is your time to shine and communicate your story in your own words.
Application Fee. You will be able to submit the $35 application fee online here.
SAT/ACT Optional. Monroe is test optional; however, if you choose, you can submit your SAT or ACT scores to enhance your application. Not submitting test scores will not affect your chances for acceptance.
Schedule your interview. In person, by phone or via Skype, we want to connect with you, meet the person behind the application, and hear your dreams and career goals.
Monroe’s JumpStart Program
JumpStart affords ambitious high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to take a college-level course on our campus at no cost – not even for the textbooks. The classes are taught by the same exceptional faculty members who teach these classes to Monroe students during the week.
Application deadlines at Monroe are non-binding. The deadlines provide applicant benefits such as invitations to accepted student events, priority to select scholarships and financial awards, plus security of a college decision early in your senior year of high school.
Like colleges around the country, we’re heeding the call for social distancing to keep everyone healthy and safe. We have moved all our admissions events to online virtual platforms and we have met terrific students this way! You can sign up for a webinar or schedule a phone call or text appointment with one of our advisors, that is customized with your interests in mind. Look forward to meeting you soon!
