    Okay so this school is expensive, it is private, but turned out to be the cheapest option for me, even cheaper than Rowan or Ramapo, both state schools. (Ramapo was going to cost me 3 times more) So apply! I don't really like the school and intend on TRANSFERRING the latest after sophomore year but for the price I am paying, worth it. LOVE MY PROFESSORS! Ample opportunities to go abroad as well.

    extremely expensive, a lot of people only go here because they got scholarships to do so. the level of education and overall fun of the school isn't worth all this money.

    If you get an academic scholarship, this college is pretty comparable to somewhere like Rutgers. However without a scholarship Monmouth is a pricey place to be. Most kids that end up going here have rich parents that have no problem knocking out 50K a year, so i guess price isn't much of an obstacle.

    Monmouth's tuition is around the same price as a lot of other schools and it's probably just as good education-wise. However, here they try to squeeze out as much money from you as they can possibly get. When ordering books definitely go through Amazon or Chegg!

    The University is always adding things to campus or fixing up what is already there. The programs offered and everything that the advisers do for each student makes the money you're paying well worth it.
