Admission Requirements

Entry Requirement

  • Once an international applicant had been admitted to Monmouth College, Students must submit the following before we can issue an I-20:

    • A copy of their passport to confirm information for the form I-20.

    • The International Student Certification of Finances Form(opens in a new tab), and (if relevant) Sponsor’s Affidavit of Support. This information is exactly replicated on your I-20, so you should be exact, precisely accurate and truthful.

    • Proof of available funds in the form of a bank statement(s), loan award letter, private or governmental scholarship award letter. For each source of funds you list in the year-by-year funding-sources table in our International Student Certification of Finances Form, you should include documentation of funds in the form of a bank statement, etc.

English Requirement

  • To be considered for admission, all applicants should submit:

    • An application. International first-year or transfer applicants to Monmouth should first submit an application for admission by completing either the Common Application or the Monmouth College application. Students only need to complete one, not both, of these options. 

    • Copies of your official transcripts and exam marks from all secondary schools and institutions of higher education attended. All documents must be accompanied by a translation into English if the original documents in another language.

    • A secondary piece of evidence documenting academic ability. To satisfy this requirement, students may submit official SAT or ACT scores, an essay or writing statement, or a graded paper or piece of academic work. We are proudly test optional, so SAT or ACT scores are not required, but international applicants who choose to apply without SAT or ACT scores must provide an essay, graded paper or some other academic supporting document, and must still demonstrate English proficiency.

    • Demonstration of English proficiency. Monmouth College requires a minimum TOEFL score of 79 IBT or 550 PBT, a minimum 6.5 IELTS score, or a minimum 100 Duolingo test score. This requirement may be waived for students who attend a high school in which the primary language of instruction is English.

Course Information

How can a car accident cause depression? How does a prescription drug target neurotransmitters to reduce our levels of anxiety? Why can experiencing fear make our palms sweat? These are the big and fascinating questions at the heart of biopsychology.

Our students learn to understand the biological mechanisms of behavior and psychological processes. Biopsychology benefits students interested in pursuing a post-baccalaureate degree in medical school or academic as well as students interested in professional and health careers that require a solid foundation in science.

Our program provides intellectual and practical engagement though internships, participation in conferences, travel and research opportunities.
