Stevens accepts transfer students for the fall and spring semesters. Learn more about processes, timelines and requirements for applying as a transfer student and how your credits from a community college or university might apply towards your degree at Stevens. A transfer application should be submitted if you are currently, or have been, enrolled in a college or university post-high school graduation, or after obtaining a high school equivalency exam.
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 2022 first year applicants and Fall 2021, Spring 2022, and Fall 2022 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).
