I haven't completed my application yet. Can I still send my transcripts, letters of recommendation, and test scores?

Test scores, transcripts and letters of recommendation can be sent to MIIS at any time, even if the rest of your application is not yet complete.  We will store these documents in a temporary file until we receive your application or for up to one year.

How do I apply for the merit scholarship?

All admitted applicants to the Monterey Institute are considered for Merit Scholarships. No separate application is necessary. However, the funds for these scholarships are limited, so please submit your application materials before one of the priority deadlines:

Fall Semester: December 1st, February 1st, March 1st
Spring Semester: October 1st

How many people applied to the programs last year? How many students enrolled in programs?

This year we received over 1,100 applications for our graduate programs. About 400 of these students will enroll in fall semester classes. Because of our commitment to the Monterey Way, we have found that most candidates self-select themselves for our programs.

Do you offer online courses?

We offer a handful of online courses, we do not currently offer degree programs online.

Can I enroll as a part-time student?

Most students enroll full-time, preferring to complete their professional degree in two years. It is possible, however, to take classes on part-time basis as a both a degree and non-degree seeking student. As a non-degree student, you may take up to eight credits a semester. Please contact your Enrollment Managers for more details.

I am fluent in a foreign language. Can I waive the language requirement for the international policy and business degree programs?

In certain cases, students who demonstrate near-native level fluency in a foreign language may waive all or part of their language requirements. Non-native English speakers who demonstrate a high level of English proficiency may also do this.  Your Enrollment Manager will facilitate consideration for this upon request.

I have questions that cannot be answered by these FAQs! Who should I contact?
