If Stevens is your first choice for college, we encourage you to consider applying as an Early Decision applicant. The acceptance rate for Early Decision candidates is significantly higher than the acceptance rate of regular decision candidates. What’s more, an Early Decision acceptance allows you to finish your college search earlier, giving you peace of mind as you prepare for college and enjoy the remainder of your senior year.
When you know, you know.
We offer two Early Decision plans to consider in your senior year. At Stevens, Early Decision is binding. If you are admitted as an early decision student with a financial aid offer that enables you to enroll, then you must submit a tuition deposit by the deadline listed on the admission timeline. If you apply for financial aid, you will have the opportunity to review your estimated financial aid and scholarship award before making the commitment to attend Stevens.
