If you’re a high school senior, you’re in the midst of a very intense process — so we’ll try to make this as easy for you as possible. Find all you need to know about important dates, application requirements, the coursework we look for on your transcript and other steps in applying to Stevens.
A freshman application should be submitted if you are a current high school student, or a high school graduate that has not been enrolled in a college or university since graduation. This includes students that have earned college credits through a high school and/or dual-enrollment curriculum.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has led to continued SAT/ACT testing challenges. It remains difficult for many students to take the exams and students who are able to take the exams may still be doing so under unusual circumstances. Recognizing that standardized testing opportunities may not be available to potential applicants, and in an effort to support access to our university, Stevens Institute of Technology is extending the SAT/ACT test optional policy, with some exceptions, for Fall 2023 first year applicants and Fall 2022, Spring 2023, and Fall 2023 transfer applicants.
The test optional plan requires applicants to indicate if they will submit test scores on their application for admission. Those who choose to do so may self-report test scores with the understanding that officially submitted test scores from the appropriate testing agency are required for enrollment.
The test optional plan does not eliminate the need for demonstrated language proficiency. Non-native English-speaking students will still be required to submit results from an English language proficiency exam (TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, SAT EBRW or Duolingo).
