Policy on Matriculated Students Taking Courses Elsewhere

After degree-seeking students have matriculated at Stevenson University, transfer of courses from other institutions requires advanced approval on the form entitled "Request To Take Courses At Another College." Approval of these requests is based on clear evidence that such courses are comparable to the Stevenson University description.

Approval of these requests is made by the Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.

  1. All major requirements must be taken at Stevenson University.
  2. Because the curriculum is based on a special commitment to writing, all writing courses must be taken at Stevenson University, unless exempt (see exemptions under Placement).
  3. The last 30 credits must be taken at Stevenson University unless a waiver is granted in writing by the Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.
  4. Courses may not be taken elsewhere during a semester (including May and Summer terms) in which they are being offered at Stevenson.

Exceptions for any of these regulations can be made only by the Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.
