Graduate Studies and Experience

Overall graduate student full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment increased 24.6% from 2,623 in Fall 2020 to 3,268 in Fall 2021 with a notable increase in the number of new StevensOnline students which was 459 in FY21, 36% higher than the target. Domestic graduate student FTE enrollment increased to 882 in Fall 2021, amounting to 27% of the total FTE graduate enrollment and exceeding the target of 25% by 2022. Stevens continued its efforts to increase and diversify graduate student enrollment. During the past year, the growth in full-time domestic students and online students helped offset the decrease in international students due to the pandemic. New Ph.D. student enrollment decreased from 126 in AY19-20 to 98 in AY20-21 due to the pandemic, but Stevens is still on-track to achieve its goal of granting 70 doctoral degrees each year by 2022. Part-time graduate student FTE enrollment increased from 421 in Fall 2020 to 478 in Fall 2021, exceeding its goal of 450 by Fall 2022 one year ahead of schedule.
