October is always a very busy month in Admissions. We're in the throes of what we call "travel season," the 10-12 weeks we spend each fall visiting hundreds of high schools, interviewing students at coffee and sandwich shops, and representing the university at college fairs. Traveling doesn't mean life stops in the office, though; and with many students having already applied for fall 2017 we've begun reviewing applications. Stevenson has a rolling admissions process with specific deadlines for scholarship consideration. We read applications in the order they are completed and students can expect a decision within three to four weeks. We always send our first decisions the week of October 15 and we'll send a new round of decision letters every Friday until the admission cycle comes to a close. So, despite our packed agendas, application review is underway and today we sent our first offers of admission for the Class of 2021.
To learn more about our application process or submit your own application, visit stevenson.edu/apply.
Keep these upcoming scholarship deadlines in mind:
Presidential Fellowship (full-tuition; separate application also required): November 1
Priority Scholarship Consideration (receive decision by Dec. 25): December 1
Service Scholars, Leadership Scholars, and Art & Design Scholarships: January 15
Final Scholarship Consideration: February 1
All high school juniors and seniors who attended our Open House on September 24, 2016 were entered to win either a free semester in a Stevenson suite (juniors) or one year free of tuition, fees, room and board (seniors). Winners were selected at random from a list of all attendees who checked in by 9:00 a.m.
Gabriella Makowiecki, North Harford High School (Class of 2018 - suite winner)
Christabelle Agyapong, Baltimore Polytechnic Institute (Class of 2017 - tuition winner)
Your admissions counselor will be calling you soon to congratulate you and provide additional details.
Didn't win? Seniors who apply by December 1, are admitted, and then visit after being admitted are entered into a drawing for tuition, room and board. That winner will be announced following our Accepted Students' Day in April. Full details on our giveaways are at stevenson.edu/tuitiongiveaway.
