International Students

Stevenson University is proud of its diverse culture. That's why we welcome students who are citizens of countries other than the United States and who are currently living abroad or living in the United States with legal visa status. You'll be able to contribute to our culture while you earn a degree that will position you for a career or graduate school, whether at home or abroad. Once you're here, you can quickly immerse yourself in student life through intramural sports or in our more than 40 student social and major-based clubs and organizations. One of these is the International Club, which allows students, faculty, and staff to embrace diverse cultures and religions through educational and social programs such as speakers, films, cultural fairs, and dinners. So come help make our community even more robust.

All international students, except documented U.S. Permanent Residents, Refugees, and Asylees*, should submit all application requirements by April 1 for fall semester admission and September 1 for spring semester admission. Some majors, such as Nursing and Medical Technology, may have much earlier deadlines for all transfer students and may only start once a year rather than twice. Please see our academic programs for more information.

*Applicants who are currently residing in the United States as legal U.S. Permanent Residents, Refugees, or Asylees must meet all the stated admissions requirements for freshmen or transfer students and follow the same application procedures as U.S. citizens. However, U.S. Permanent Residents must also submit a high quality copy of the front and back of their Permanent Resident (green) card, and Refugees and Asylees must provide proof of legal residence in the U.S. The Admissions Office will not process your application without this component. These categories of documented non-U.S. citizens can apply for need-based financial aid, and undergraduate applicants are also automatically considered for merit-based scholarships.
