Transfer of Credits

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

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 course satisfy Stevens' academic standards. The more information we have, the better chance you have receiving credit. Some students find it helpful to ask their instructor or department head to provide them with a course outline. Course outlines are highly recommended for mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, statistics, dynamics, and natural science courses.

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.

Evaluations are done with respect to each individual college you attended, so please provide course information from all institutions from which you seek to transfer credits. In order to be considered for transfer credit, the Admissions office will need:

  • Official College Transcript
  • Detailed syllabus for each course taken

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:
