    Placement Testing

    English and/or math placement testing is required of some students dependent upon SAT or ACT scores. Stevenson offers this testing on-campus. You will receive a letter containing information about placement testing after you deposit in the spring. Students are strongly recommended to test before orientation to allow for more time to consider options should developmental coursework be necessary. Testing will be available on orientation for students who are not able to test earlier. 


    New Student Registration & Orientation

    Mustang Days, SU's orientation and registration program for freshmen, will take place in late June 2015. Invitations with RSVP information are mailed in May to students who have deposited to attend in the fall. You will be required to attend a single orientation program based on your major.


    Changing Your Major

    Before registering for classes, please call your admissions counselor to discuss changing your major. Requests to change majors will be automatically granted except in the case of Nursing. The admissions committee must re-review your application to determine if you are eligible for Nursing. You do not need to speak with an academic advisor to change your major until after registering for fall classes.

    Stevenson does accept scores on some AP and IB tests for transfer credit. Please click the following link for full details.

    Information about the ACCUPLACER

    • ACCUPLACER  is a suite of tests that quickly, accurately, and efficiently assess reading, writing, and math skills.
    • Tests are untimed and students may leave the testing room to take a break as necessary. Most students taking both English and math tests finish in about two hours.
    • NO calculators are permitted on the math test, as an on-screen calculator will appear when needed.

    For more information, read the ACCUPLACER Introduction on the Collegeboard website. We strongly encourage that students review concepts in mathematics, reading, and writing in preparation for the ACCUPLACER. Please visit Prepare for ACCUPLACER to download sample questions and other free resources.
