Application Review Process

When applying to graduate school at Stevens, there are a few things you will need to keep in mind. Make note of the application deadlines. Deadlines differ based on program and school, whether you are taking classes on-campus or via StevensOnline, and on whether you are a domestic or international student.

Once the Graduate Admissions has received all the necessary documents, your application will be forwarded to the appropriate academic department for final review. For Master's Degree and Graduate Certificate programs, decisions are released on the notification date or on a rolling basis. Rolling admissions, on average, take two to four weeks from the time a completed application is submitted.

For Ph.D. programs, decisions are generally issued within four weeks after the application deadline. Graduate Admissions will inform students by email when a decision has been posted to their account. You may then log onto your status portal to view the decision. 

The process can be streamlined if all required documents are uploaded to the online application upon submission, allowing Graduate Admissions to submit a complete application package to the department for review as soon as possible. Official transcripts must be submitted either by electronic copy (Electronic Transcript Exchange - ETX) from your institution or in sealed envelopes. If official documents are unavailable, unofficial documents can be used for initial review temporarily; however, applicants will not be fully admitted until all official documents have been received.
