Registration

All current Monmouth University students and deposited “Applicants” are provided with access to the University’s student portal, myMU. These students are provided with a unique User ID and password, which allows them to view their personal student information and to conduct their personal student business via the Web.

Continuing students who have met with their academic advisor and received permission to do so may self-register using the registration tools linked from the student portal during the registration period. Specific information for dates and times to register online will be distributed to each student in advance of this period. Other important information regarding registration is available on the “Registration Information” page of the Monmouth University Web site. Online registration is not available to students who are on academic probation or whose current admission status is conditional.

Continuing students are strongly urged to complete “early registration” for upcoming semesters and terms. Early registration for the fall, spring, and summer semesters usually begins in April and concludes in August. Late registration is conducted during the first week of the fall and spring semesters; students are required to pay the “late registration” fee when registering during the late registration period. Registration after the conclusion of the late registration period requires the written approval of the appropriate faculty and department chairs. Students are not permitted to attend classes for which they are not officially registered (as determined by the Office of the Registrar). If students attend without prior registration, they are subject to disciplinary action, including suspension and dismissal, and will not be permitted to “retroactively” enroll.

New students are invited to register during special programs during the summer and in January as part of their orientation to the University. Late registration is available to new students, although it is less desirable than the mode described above.

Registration privileges are not extended to students who have significant unresolved financial or other obligations to the University. “Holds” are placed on the records of such students. Upon resolution of the obligation, registration privileges are restored. Course prerequisites are updated periodically. Students should confer with their advisors concerning the most recent prerequisites on record for courses they wish to take. Students must fulfill the most current prerequisite requirements prior to taking courses at Monmouth University.

Full time graduate students normally carry nine (9) credits per semester. Graduate students wishing to enroll in more than fifteen credits for a regular term (fall/spring) must first obtain permission from the department chair or graduate program director and the school dean. The maximum course load for the summer is limited to a total of nine credits.
