    Student Health Profile

    Stevenson’s Student Health Profile must be completed by all new, full-time students. The profile is completed online through the Wellness Center Secure Patient Portal. Students who deposit by May 1 will have access to this portal in late May after receiving their SU single sign-on account (one log-in and password for a variety of Stevenson services). In addition to the completed health profile, all full-time students, whether residential or commuter, are required to be immunized against MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) as well as Varicella (chickenpox) according to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  If immunization records are not available, students will be asked to show proof of immunity through Titer Test (blood work) results. All full-time students planning to live on-campus are also required to be immunized against Meningococcal disease.

    There are three parts to the profile that must be completed online between late May and July 1 for fall entrance, after you have received an email with information about creating your Stevenson single sign-on account. Failure to complete the Student Health Profile by July 1 may result in delays to students moving onto campus and future class registration.

    If you have any questions, please contact the Wellness Center at 443-352-4200. View our Health Forms page for more information and go to the Wellness Center Student Portal. 

    Additional health forms are required for athletes, nursing students, and medical laboratory science students. If you have any questions, please contact the Wellness Center at 443-352-4200.

    Placement Testing

    Math placement testing is required of all students who have not completed at least a 3-credit college Intermediate Algebra course (or higher level math course) with a minimum of a "C." English placement testing is required of some students dependent upon SAT or ACT scores.  Stevenson offers this testing on-campus and 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. Limited space for testing will be available during orientation for students who are not able to test earlier.

    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.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How will my college credits transfer to SU? 

    If you are a transfer student, you will find an official transfer credit evaluation from our Registrar’s Office and a guide to understanding that evaluation enclosed in this folder. Your official degree audit showing exactly what courses you have remaining to complete your degree will be available on WebXpress shortly before your registration date.

    What is WebXpress?

    WebXpress is Stevenson’s online information system. As an accepted student, you can use WebXpress to check the status of your financial aid application or view updates to your transfer credit evaluation. WebXpress log-in instructions are available at stevenson.edu/webxpress.

    Will I get credit for my AP, IB and CLEP exams?

    Official AP, IB and CLEP test scores are considered for college credit. A chart with our full AP, IB and CLEP credit policy can be found here. Official scores should be sent to the Registrar’s Office as soon as possible. 

    When will I hear if I have been awarded a scholarship?

    Eligible applicants are notified of scholarship awards by mail within two weeks of acceptance. Scholarship awards are based on cumulative college GPA and number of credits completed for transfer students and on cumulative high school GPA and SAT or ACT scores for first-year students. Please see stevenson.edu/scholarships for more information.

    When will I receive a financial aid award?

    You can expect to receive a financial aid award within two weeks of submitting the 2017-2018 FAFSA to Stevenson and being admitted to the university.

    When will I hear about living on campus?

    New students who have submitted the Enrollment Intent Form, the Housing Reservation Form, and the $300 deposit will be notified by email in mid-December with instructions regarding completing their residential profile and housing assignment.

    Do I need to submit health records to enroll?

    Yes. Stevenson’s Student Health Profile must be completed by all new, full-time students. The profile is completed online through the Wellness Center Secure Patient Portal. You’ll have access to the portal in late December/early January after submitting your enrollment deposit and receiving your SU single sign-on account (one log-in for a variety of Stevenson services). Even before you have access to the portal you should request your immunization records from your physician as you’ll need to submit those to the Wellness Center. The deadline to complete the Student Health Profile is January 5. 

    All full-time students, whether residential or commuter, are required to be immunized against MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) as well as Varicella (chicken pox) according to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If immunization records are not available, students will be asked to show proof of immunity through Titer Test (blood work) results.

    All students planning to live on campus at SU are required to be vaccinated according to the CDC recommendations against Meningitis ACWY (MCV4). A separate vaccination against Meningitis B is recommended but not required at this time.

    Failure to submit a completed Student Health Profile by the designated deadline will block you from registering for future classes and/or lead to removal from housing. Stevenson University cannot be responsible for costs not covered by insurance associated with completion of the Student Health Profile.

    IMPORTANT: Students required to turn in health-related information to Athletics or the Berman School of Nursing and Health Professions still MUST complete a Student Health Profile separate from those additional requirements. The information that is submitted to these other offices is NOT shared with the Wellness Center.

    Who should I talk to about Disability Services?

    Newly admitted students with disabilities who require accommodations should contact Disability Services in the Office of Student Success as early as possible to initiate the intake and eligibility process. To request accommodations, students must complete the following three steps:

    1. Complete the Disability Services Accommodation Intake Form. Students should clearly state on the intake form what specific accommodations they require due to their disability.

    2. Submit documentation of the disability that meets the University’s guidelines. The documentation should identify the student’s disability, detail the current functional impact of that disability, and explain the need for each recommended accommodation.

    The intake form and the University’s documentation guidelines by contacting the Director of Disability Services at 443-352-4920.

    Note: SU does not provide testing for learning or other disabilities on-campus. We do have a list of professionals in the area who provide these services off-campus.

    3. Schedule an intake meeting with the Director of Disability Services to discuss your requests and learn about what accommodations and services may be available to meet your needs at Stevenson.

    When can I visit campus?

    Campus visits are available every day SU classes are in session from Monday-Friday and selected Saturdays. Visit visit.stevenson.edu for more information about our visit programs or to register.

    I want a different major than I listed on my application, how do I change it?

    Please contact the Admissions Office before your registration day to change your major.

    When is the first day of class?

    Monday, January 22, 2018. Move-in is the day before for students living on campus.
