Stevenson University provides a career-focused, personalized education at two Maryland campuses. The two sites, both located just outside of Balitmore, offer distinctly unique experiences, with the urban Owings Mills Campus and the more rural Greenspring Campus in Stevenson. Students can study at the undergraduate and graduate level, with programs preparing them for real-world work. In fact, the school encourages off-campus learning through internships and volunteer work, and has a 96% job placement rate, according to its website. Stevenson also encourages students to participate in experiential learning experiences like service learning opportunities, study abroad, campus research, and working in places like museums and political events.
Stevenson has five schools of learning, with areas of study including business and leadership, design, education, graduate and professional studies, humanities and social sciences, and sciences. The school caters to students of all ages, especially adult learners. For instance, through its accelerated undergraduate program geared towards working adults, students can complete an undergraduate program within 18 to 24 months, depending on the number of credits earned previously, by taking classes online or in an online-campus hybrid. Areas of study in this program include business administration, computer information systems, criminal justice, paralegal studies, and RN-BS and RN-MS tracks.
Stevenson University has been regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 1962. It also holds specialized accreditation through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, Maryland Board of Nursing, National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
Stevenson has a rolling admissions policy. Undergraduate applicants can choose from the school’s paper or online application, or the Common Application plus the school’s supplement. In addition to an application, they must submit their official high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores, a letter of recommendation, an essay, and a notarized copy of their Resident Alien card, if applicable. Applicants can also elect to submit up to two additional letters of recommendation and personal resumes.
Graduate admission requirements vary based on program. To apply to the adult undergraduate program, applicants need to have at least two years of professional work experience and at least 15 transferable credits with a minimum GPA of 2.5, or, barring that, must submit an official high school or GED transcript. They also must submit an application and official transcripts from each college previously attended. Applicants to the graduate programs school have at least a 3.0 GPA in past academic work and a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. To apply, they must submit official transcripts of all previous college-level and graduate level course-work, a writing sample, and, optionally, letters of recommendation, a resume of professional experience, and GRE or GMAT scores. Specific programs may also have additional requirements.
