For undergraduate students applying to Montclair State for fall 2020 entrance, the application deadline has been extended to May 1, 2020, for Freshman Students and June 1, 2020, for Transfer Students. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted to accommodate high school and college closures or delays in processing transcripts. For accepted students, the deposit deadline to reserve their space at Montclair State has been extended to June 1, 2020.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and The Graduate School are providing virtual experiences and opportunities for prospective and accepted students to learn more about Montclair State, engage with faculty and staff, and get a sense of our welcoming Red Hawk Country community.

“Ensuring applicants continue to receive our prompt attention and assistance as they make important choices about their education has been top-of-mind for us,” says Jeffrey Gant, director, Undergraduate Admissions. “We’ve worked quickly to make sure students have access to staff through web conferencing and phone appointments, and we’ve moved many of our resources online to help students get to know Montclair State, even if they can’t visit campus.”

A new Live Chat feature is available on the Admissions Homepage. Here, prospective students can connect with an actual admissions staff member and have questions answered in real time (this is currently staffed M-F 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)

A Virtual Tour video shows off the “wow” factor of the Montclair State campus.

Freshmen and Transfer Admissions Counselors are available for 30-minute Telecounseling sessions via phone, online chat, or web conference. Sign up for a Telecounseling Session today!

Coming soon: Accepted students who are starting in fall 2020 can learn what being a Red Hawk is all about through a new online Virtual Accepted Student Day. Accepted students will get to virtually explore student clubs and organizations, view academic presentations, learn about residence and campus life, hear from Financial Aid, and more. Additional details of this virtual experience will be provided in April.

Coming in April: An Interactive Campus Tour that will bring the Montclair State campus to life and show off the sights and sounds of Montclair Township. Additional details of our Interactive Campus Map will be provided in April.
