Transfer of Credits

Students who have received college credit for courses already taken may transfer credits toward their Stevens degree.

Stevens will review courses for transfer credit that meet the following criteria:

For college courses taken at the college campus:

  1. The course cannot be used to meet high school graduation requirements (no double counting)
  2. The course must be approved for transfer by the appropriate Stevens academic department
  3. A grade of C or better must be achieved in the course

For courses taken at the high school for which a college is giving credit:

  1. The course has to be taught by faculty from the college which is offering the course
  2. The course cannot be used to meet high school graduation requirements (no double counting)
  3. The course must be approved for transfer by the appropriate Stevens academic department
  4. A grade of A- or better in the course is required

The student must submit a detailed syllabus for each course which is eligible to be reviewed for credit.  The more information we have, the better chance you have of receiving credit. Some students find it helpful to ask their instructor or department head to provide them with a course outline.  The course names and syllabi are submitted to Stevens faculty for review, at which time they will indicate the Stevens course equivalents and return the completed information to Undergraduate Admissions. Admissions then seeks final approval from the Academic Dean. Upon receipt of the Dean's approval, you will be notified of the results, and the Admissions Office provides the Registrar with the information, so that it may be incorporated into your academic record.

All students wishing to transfer credits into Stevens must forward a syllabus to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions no later than June 1st and a Transcript no later than July 15th to the attention of:
