A written study plan is necessary for all students pursuing a degree. Registration for classes in your first semester at Stevens is permitted without a Study Plan. During the first semester you are expected to register in the core courses required for your degree and/or in any courses that were required and stipulated in your acceptance letter. Courses required for your degree are shown in the Graduate Catalog. Please send approved study plans to the Registrar's Office (Fax 201-216-8030) in order to enroll in future semesters.
You may modify your study plan at any time with the approval of your Faculty Advisor. Only courses shown on your approved study plan will count toward your degree requirements. Your most recent study plan needs to be on file. Study plans and all other relevant documentation are available in the forms section of the Registrar's page or on the Graduate Admissions site.
