Spring Visits for Admitted Students

We started mailing our first admit packets in early October and have stayed busy reviewing students for admission to the Class of 2021. (If you are still applying, that’s ok. The final scholarship consideration deadline is February 1).  As students begin to receive their decisions, they start to think about where they would like to attend college. Deciding where to enroll may seem overwhelming. You will need to ask yourself, what are you looking for and how do you know you have found the right school? You will probably want to visit schools in the spring to help guide your decision. You may be visiting for the first or maybe even fifth time. We offer many opportunities for admitted students to visit in the spring to experience life on campus.  ...Click here to read more.


Our office began mailing merit-based award notifications to all eligible admitted students in December.

During this time of year, many students and families may begin to wonder what other financial opportunities are available in addition to potential awards from Stevenson. In addition to merit-based awards, eligible students can apply for SU's specialty scholarships including the Service and Leadership Scholars Programs, the Art and Design Scholarship, and the Founders’ Scholarship. Still looking for more scholarships?  Here are a few tips to help you apply for scholarships outside of Stevenson....Click here to read more.

A few of our admit packets stuffed and ready to mail.

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.
