Other Institutions

After degree-seeking students have matriculated at Stevenson University, transfer of courses from other institutions requires advance approval on the form entitled Request to Take Courses at Another Institution. Approval of these requests is based on clear evidence that such courses are comparable to the Stevenson University courses. Courses included on the course equivalency grid have already received thorough vetting by the appropriate associate dean, department chair, or program coordinator. Approval of courses not appearing on the course equivalency grid is made by the associate dean, department chair, or program coordinator of the department offering the course. Students are strongly advised to consult with their advisors prior to seeking permission to take a course at another institution to determine how the course applies to their degree audit.

The following guidelines apply:

  1. Students may take up to 3 courses at another institution once they have begun attendance at Stevenson. Lecture/laboratory courses count as one course.
  2. Courses may not be taken elsewhere during fall and spring semesters if they are being offered at Stevenson.
  3. All major requirements must be taken at Stevenson University. When a major requirement also fulfills a SEE requirement, it may be taken outside of Stevenson only upon the approval of the academic administrator of the student's major.
  4. Because the curriculum is based on a special commitment to writing, all writing instruction and writing-intensive courses must be taken at Stevenson University.
