Frequently Asked Questions

How will my college credits transfer to SU?

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.

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.

You can expect to receive a financial aid award within two weeks of submitting the 2019-2020 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 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.

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.
