Stevens Institute of Technology has no preferred translating service, but you can locate recognized translators through the US Embassy in your area or through your country’s Consulate if you are already in the United States.

· After admission, you must submit both the official sealed transcript and the sealed word-for-word translation to the Stevens Institute of Technology, Office of Graduate Admissions upon arrival to the university. The outside of the envelope must bear the university seal or the translator’s endorsement


· GRE/GMAT scores are required for all applicants applying into a full-time graduate program. Students wishing to attend on a part-time basis should refer to the individual program pages for their admission requirements. Please note that all scores are only valid if taken within 5 years prior to the application term.

· For GRE and GMAT scores, we have no minimum requirements. Our application review is a holistic process where each material submitted will be taken into consideration. Therefore, you should try to make sure that each part of your application is as strong as possible.

TOEFL/IELTS/Duolingo scores (International Students Only)

All international applicants must demonstrate English Language proficiency by submitting the results of a TOEFL, an IELTS, or a Duolingo test dated within the last two years of your application review.
