Admissions and Visiting Stockton
Stockton’s goal is to reduce the number of people on campus—including visitors—in order to slow the potential transmission of the COVID-19 virus and protect vulnerable populations from exposure. For new ways to “visit us,” please visit our Admitted Virtual Sessions page for helpful videos and resources.
Please be advised that Admissions Staff are working remotely. In accordance with the March 16, 2020 Executive Order from Governor Murphy, the University has implemented a remote working protocol during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. The best way to reach an Admissions Counselor is to email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are answering emails daily. If you want to request a call or Zoom with a counselor, email that request to email@example.com and we can arrange it. Please check Stockton's Coronavirus Information page for updates and resources.
The main number to Admissions is 609-652-4261 and will be answered from 8:30am - 5:00pm remotely. If you call outside of those hours, please leave a voicemail and we will return your call. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a phone call with a staff member.
Transcript, Testing & Document Submission
We will accept an unofficial transcript or record of your grades that you can download from PowerSchool or whatever your school’s online system can provide. However, please know that you will receive a conditional admission until we receive your official transcript. All official documents must be received prior to the start of classes in the Fall.

The University adopted an alternate instructional model through our Summer sessions in an effort to help slow the rate of transmission of the coronavirus. All classes will be held online. Athletic practices and competitions are cancelled through the remainder of the academic year.
While the campus will remain open, students and the community are strongly encouraged to stay home as the University supports social distancing. On-site staffing is limited as faculty and staff follow work-from-home protocol.
