Transfer Students

Students who have graduated from high school and have subsequently enrolled in college or university classes are considered transfer students.  Current high school students taking college classes as part of their high school program are considered freshmen and should follow the application instructions for traditional freshmen.  Transfer students 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 December 1 for the spring semester. Earlier deadlines apply for scholarship consideration.  Please see Scholarships and Financial Aid

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.  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 may possibly 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, standardized test scores, and college records may be considered for students who have completed fewer than 28 college-level credits. Applicants are notified of the admission decision on a rolling basis after January 1 for the fall semester and after October 1 for the spring semester.

Please note that nursing and medical laboratory science have additional application and admission requirements. Please see the appropriate academic program pages at for details.

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

  1. Common Application or Stevenson University Application.
  2. Official college transcripts from each college previously attended. College-level coursework completed outside of the United States must be evaluated by World Education Services An official WES  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 28 college-level credits at the time of application. (An SAT or ACT score may be required for admission for students with under 28 college credits and is required for scholarship consideration.)
