How to Apply
We are excited that you are ready to learn more about the SU application process. Admission to Stevenson is selective and reserved for students who are prepared to meet the rigors of college-level work and whose personal characteristics make them a good fit for our community. The Admissions Committee reads each application thoroughly and releases decisions on a rolling basis meaning that applications are accepted, and decisions are mailed, throughout the year. You can expect to have a decision from us approximately 3-4 weeks after you have submitted your application and all other required information. We will not review your application until all required information has been received.
There are three easy ways to apply to SU
- Stevenson University Online Application
- Common Application
- Freshman Paper Application (plus a $40 non-refundable application fee)
- Transfer Paper Application
All methods are equally valid; please choose the one that is best for you and submit only one application.
In selecting students, we consider academic preparation, intellectual promise, and personal character. We are particularly impressed by students who can express how Stevenson's unique career-oriented programs and Experiential Learning opportunities will help them realize the future they imagine for themselves and for the world.

When completing the application, your school counselor can submit documents electronically through Naviance and the Common Application. We can also accept transcripts electronically from high schools and community colleges that use the Electronic Transmission Transcript System. If you or your school counselor have questions about how to submit application materials, contact your Stevenson admission counselor.
