Requirements – What You Will Need

General

1. Undergraduate Degree 
In order to be admitted to the graduate programs at Stevens Institute of Technology online certificate programs, you will need to have completed your undergraduate degree at an accredited institution. You do not need to have completed your undergraduate degree to take training programs.

2. Application
You may apply via mail or by WWW. Once we have received all your documents, your application will be reviewed by the appropriate department. On average, it takes two to three weeks to reach a decision on an application. You will then be informed by mail if you are rejected or accepted into the program. If you wish to start taking online classes as soon as possible, but will not have all your application materials available three weeks before the start of the semester, you can take a class as a Non-Matriculating student, pending review. Enrolling at Stevens with a non-matriculating status does not guarantee that you will be accepted into the certificate program.

Two Letters of Recommendation are required. You do not need to submit letters of recommendation for the Professional e-Seminars (training) classes or non-academic programs.

4. Transcripts
You will also need to submit Official Transcripts in English from the college(s) you attended. Translations into English must either be prepared by the school you attended or be prepared by an Official Translator with a recognized seal.

8. GRE and GMAT Exams
All students applying for admission into the MBA or PhD programs MUST take the GMAT or GRE exam.  Applicants to the MBA program require a GMAT score >500 (or 550 for the Financial Engineering major)to be considered for admission.  Other than for PhD or MBA programs, these tests are not generally required for US students.   However, academic program directors may strongly recommend the GRE general exam for some students. View a list of application requirements, by program, including entry exams, hereNOTE: Applicants for the Computer Science Program (CyberSecurity concentration) who do not have a bachelor's degree in CS , or applicants seeking financial support, MUST take the GRE general exam.  The requirements for admission into the MS program in Computer Science (CyberSecurity Concentration) are a bachelor's degree in computer science or computer engineering with a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a four point scale.
