Prospective Students

  • Can I apply to both the Montclair and Bloomfield locations?
    No, you can only apply to one location. Each location offers a distinct experience. Sign up for a telecounseling appointment so an admissions counselor can help you figure out which is the best fit for you.
  • How do I tell Montclair which location I want on my application?
    You will see a question asking which location you wish to study at, and that is where you will select Bloomfield or Montclair. Once you choose your location, the majors available will be shown to you.
  • What happens if I change my mind about the location I am interested in after I apply?
    We are happy to change your application information for you. Send us a note at msuadm@montclair.edu. Make sure to provide us your full name and date of birth so we can find your application. If you have already been admitted to one location, you may have to be re-reviewed for admission to the other location.
  • If I start my studies at one location, will I be able to transfer to the other location? Can I take classes at the other location?
    Students can apply as an internal transfer between locations based on their major’s requirements. More information about taking classes between locations will be available soon.
