Parents and Family

Welcome to the Family!

Congratulations! You and your student have made a great choice in Montclair State.

As parents and family, you are valued members of Montclair’s extended community — a community that combines the advantages of a large university with the personal attention of a much smaller school.

We’re here for your student and we’re here for you. This website addresses your questions and concerns about everything from the application process and academic programs to tuition and on-campus housing and gives you the information you need to support your Montclair State student.
