All undergraduate students are required to complete a minimum of 120 credits; some degrees require more credits. Individual program requirements are included on the applicable department page of this catalog. Additionally, all undergraduates must meet a minimum 2.00 overall grade point average (GPA), a minimum major GPA of 2.10 (except for Education majors who are held to a 3.00 minimum GPA), and, if applicable, a minimum 2.10 minor GPA. Calculation of a major GPA includes all courses fulfilled in the major and interdisciplinary areas of the audit.
Diplomas are mailed 2-3 weeks following the graduation date, provided that all University obligations have been met. In addition, Monmouth University provides a Certified Electronic Diploma (CeDiploma), an official and verifiable PDF version of the diploma. A link to download the CeDiploma will be sent by email 2-3 weeks following the graduation date
In those rare instances when a student has not met all degree requirements, but for whom a change to the academic record is received by the Office of the Registrar within one week following the graduation, the student will be considered for the earlier graduation. The effective date of the change must be on or before the actual date of the graduation. Changes received later than one week beyond graduation will not be considered for prior graduation but will be part of the next graduation cycle.
Only students who have completed all graduation requirements, including, but not limited to, course work, credit requirements, GPA minimums, residency requirements, and the like, will be allowed to participate in Commencement.
