The best way to learn about the opportunities available at Stevens Institute of Technology is to visit our campus. Walk-ins are welcome, but we encourage you to register online to ensure manageable group sizes and seating accommodations for all of our guests. If you are unable to register online, please call 800.STEVENS, and we can assist with your registration.

Please see below for descriptions of our various campus visit options.  All events, unless otherwise noted, run for one hour.

Information Sessions

We offer Admissions Information Sessions conducted by an Admissions Counselor Monday through Friday and on select Saturdays.  The presentation goes over the application process, academic areas, student life, professional resources and other aspects of campus.  Information Sessions are held in the Ruesterholz Admissions.  Please note that Stevens does not conduct Information Sessions in the month of February.     

Campus Tours

We offer student led campus tours Monday through Friday at 11am, 2pm, and 4pm and on select Saturdays during the academic year.  You will have the opportunity to see the residence halls, main academic buildings, dining halls, library, athletic complex and more. The tour will be indoors and outdoors, so please check the weather forecast before visiting. 

Academic Campus Tours

We offer academic campus tours during the school year for insights to specific academic interest areas.  You will have the opportunity to see the laboratory spaces, learn about the department's majors and curriculum, and ask questions to an upperclassman tour guide in that major. The tour will be indoors and outdoors, so please check the weather forecast before visiting. 

We will be offering academic campus tours on the following days during Spring 2015.  Academic Departmental tours are only held when classes are in session:

Business - Tuesday (3pm), Thursday (12pm)
Computer Science - Tuesday (12pm), Wednesday (12pm)

Attend a Class

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions has handpicked a variety of classes for prospective students to audit.  These classes were chosen to mirror the types of courses you would be taking as an underclassman and are scheduled on days to match the offerings for our Academic Campus Tours.  You're welcome to attend any class session, regardless of your intended major.  ‘Attend a Class’ is intended for prospective students only.

Admissions Interview

The admissions interview is a one-on-one meeting between a prospective high school senior or transfer student and a member of the Undergraduate Admissions staff or an Alumnus.  Interviews are available in-person, via phone or Skype.  Please be mindful of the time zone listed when registering for your interview, as all interviews are scheduled in Eastern Standard Time, unless otherwise noted.  Interviews for High School applicants wishing to enroll in the fall term must be completed by their application deadline.  Transfer students wishing to interview for Fall Term can interview prior to January 15th or after March 15th.

Use our Campus Visit Portal to register for an in-person interview, or access our Virtual Stevens Page to schedule a phone or Skype interview.

Visit Days

Visit Days are held throughout the year for general and specific prospective students and are published here on the Undergraduate Admissions website. Activities include tours, admissions and financial aid overviews, student presentations and other information sessions and showcases.

Group Visits

The Undergraduate Admissions Office is happy to accomodate group visits to our campus.  We ask that you make your group visit request at least 3 weeks and up to 3 months out from the preferred date.  A typical campus visit will include an Information Sesion, led by an Admissions Counselor, and a private campus tour.  We can also customize your agenda, if you'd like to learn more about a specific program we offer here at Stevens.  Group visits are intended for high schools and organizations looking to come to campus with over 15 people in their party.  Click here to schedule a Group Visit.
