The admissions process at Stevens seeks to ensure that you have an accurate picture of the opportunities and challenges offered by a Stevens education, while also giving the Admissions committee enough information to assess your potential for success.
Fill out and send us your completed Stevens application along with a $55 fee. You may also apply online and we'll waive the $55 fee. All international students from non-English speaking countries must send information that has been officially translated into English.
Take the SAT I or ACT and submit your scores to us as early as the end of your junior year. Students from non-English speaking countries who score below 550 on the verbal section of the SAT I, must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). For the Paper Based Test (PBT), the minimum TOEFL score accepted is 550. On the Internet Based Test (IBT), the minimum TOEFL score is 79.
Send us your official high school transcript(s) and/or certified copies of your test results, if applicable.
Stevens requires all applicants to complete an interview with the admissions office. While we encourage you to visit our campus and interview in person, due to the distance that you may live from Stevens, you may complete your interview over the phone or via Skype. Please contact Ilona Castro, Director of International Undergraduate Admissions, by email at email@example.com or via phone at (201)216-8349 to schedule an interview.
Stevens' International Student and Scholar Services Office will issue an I-20 to International Students once they have been accepted, official TOEFL scores have been received, and proof of financial support for 1 year's study at Stevens has been received. This is a U.S. immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) requirement. Stevens cannot issue an I-20 without this proof, which includes a completed Financial Verification Form or an INS Affidavit of Support (I-34) accompanied by supporting bank documentation (see Financial Verification Form). You will receive your I-20 approximately 2 weeks after your acceptance into Stevens.
Two letters of recommendation are required and must be submitted to support your candidacy.
We award a very limited number of Stevens Academic Fellowships based on merit to international students. These scholarships average $4,000 per year. There is also a loan program available from outside lenders. An American citizen or permanent resident is required to co-sign for this TERI Loan. Another financing option is Cooperative Education, a program that allows you to earn a competitive corporate salary while alternating between semesters of work and study. Thirty-five percent of our international students participate in co-op. We do not offer need-based financial aid to international applicants.
For traditional fall semester applicants:
By March 1: Complete and return a Stevens Application for Admission. Make sure to include a personal statement, your recommendations, and transcripts (we will accept late applicants in special cases)

Notification: We work on a rolling admissions cycle and will notify you after your application is complete.
