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 SAT/ACT testing date cancellations, making it difficult for many students to take the exams. Students who are able to take the exams are doing so under unusual circumstances, including measures taken for public health directives. Therefore, in an effort to support access to our university, Stevens Institute of Technology will suspend the SAT/ACT test score requirement for one year and become test optional, to the extent possible, for Fall 2021 first year student applicants.
The test optional plan will require applicants to indicate on their application if they will submit test scores. Those who choose to do so will have the opportunity to self-report test scores on their application and then officially submit test scores from the testing agency upon enrollment. If test scores are submitted, they will be used in the holistic review of the student’s application. Applicants have until their application deadline to inform Undergraduate Admissions of a change to their standardized test plan.
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).
