Traditional Transfer Students

Students desiring to enter Stevenson University after attending other colleges or universities are welcome to apply for admission for either the fall or spring semester as full-time or part-time students. Transfer applicants are encouraged to apply by May 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester. Applications filed after June 1 for the fall semester and after December 1 for the spring semester will be considered on a space-available basis.

Students who have earned the Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.A.S.), or Associate of Arts in Teaching (A.A.T.) degrees from regionally accredited institutions may be automatically admitted to Stevenson University upon receipt of the application and all required documentation. The fee for the paper application will be waived. (The online application is always free). However, acceptance into Stevenson University does not guarantee acceptance into a specific degree program. Students should also be aware that not all transferred credits may be usable toward a specific degree program. The requirements of each degree program must still be met.

Transfer students who have not completed an associate’s degree and are seeking admission into the bachelor’s degree programs should have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.50 from all colleges previously attended. Transfer students with a 2.00 minimum cumulative GPA and other accomplishments and/or experience may be granted conditional admission to the University. Admission is based primarily on each candidate’s performance at the most recently attended college; however, high school transcripts and college records will be considered for students who have completed fewer than 30 college-level credits. Applicants are notified of the admission decision on a rolling basis after January 1 for fall semester and after October 1 for spring semester.

Please note that the limited enrollment programs may have higher GPA requirements and varied application and start term dates.

For transfer students, application for admission to Stevenson University consists of the following:

  1. Completed Application for Undergraduate Admission.
  2. Official college transcripts from each college previously attended. College-level coursework completed outside of the United States must be evaluated by either World Education Services wes.org or American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers aacrao.org. An official WES or AACRAO transcript is required. A final transcript must be sent upon completion of any course work in progress at the time of application.
  3. Official high school transcript or GED for applicants who have completed less than 30 college-level credits at the time of application. (An SAT or ACT score may be required.)
  4. Interview strongly recommended for all nursing and education majors. This is optional for all other majors.
  5. OPTIONAL: Personal statement discussing career goals and/or academic history.
