Supplemental materials should be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions:

Although not required, a campus visit and tour is an extremely helpful part of the application process. Most applicants find this to be essential and benefit from visiting Stevens. You can either schedule an appointment to meet with an admissions representative and tour the campus, or register online for a Visit Day event.
Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an acknowledgement from our office indicating that your application was received. This acknowledgement may include a request for information that the University needs in order to complete the application process, as outlined in the requirements above.
Notification of Admission Decision
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will notify you of its admission decision regarding your completed application by mail. See the Application Timeline for a guide to decision notification dates.
Information for Transfer Students
Transfer credits will be evaluated upon acceptance to Stevens. At that time, we will require that you send all course descriptions and/ or course syllabi. When sending a college catalog, please mark and highlight all courses to evaluate.
Stevens awards transfer credit by matching your courses with equivalent Stevens courses. The content of a catalog description can usually assist us in determining whether your courses satisfy Stevens' academic standards. However, the more information we have, the better chance you have of receiving credit. Ask your instructor or department head to provide you with a course outline. Course outlines are highly recommended for mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, statistics, dynamics, and natural science courses.
We do not accept previously transferred credits from your last college; evaluations are done with respect to each individual college you attended.
An official AP score report is required for any AP credit. Read more about transferring advanced placement credits.
International Transfer Students
Students transferring from a college(s) outside of the United States must provide and certify the number of lab hours per week and the number of weeks each course met per term. All documentation (including course descriptions) must be translated. If you have any questions regarding transferring credits from a college(s) outside of the U.S., please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or by phone at 1-201-216-5194.
I-20 Information for International Students
Stevens' Office of International Student and Scholar Services issues I-20s to international students once they have been accepted, official test scores have been received, and proof of financial support for one year's study at Stevens has been received. This is a U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) requirement. Stevens cannot issue an I-20 without this proof, which includes a completed Financial Verification Form or an INS Affidavit of Support (I-34) accompanied by supporting bank documentation (see Financial Verification Form). Your documents must be notarized, in U.S. dollars, and no older than six months. This information should be provided when you apply to Stevens (see below). You will receive your I-20 approximately two weeks after your acceptance to Stevens.
For an international student’s application to be considered complete, you must supply financial documentation. The committee cannot review your application until this and all other supporting documents have been received. If you plan to use your personal funds to cover all of your educational and living expenses at Stevens, the only document you have to submit is a copy of your recent, official bank statement. If at least a portion of your financial support comes from a sponsor, both you and your sponsor have to complete the Financial Verification Form. If you have more than one sponsor, each of your sponsors has to complete and sign this form.
