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 admissions@stockton.edu. We are answering emails daily.  If you want to request a call or Zoom with a counselor, email that request to admissions@stockton.edu 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 admissions@stockton.edu to set up a phone call with a staff member.

You may check the status of your application by logging in to your Discover Stockton Account. Should you have additional questions, please contact stephanie.fontanes@stockton.edu. 

It is not too late to apply! We completely understand that these are unprecedented times and we will be reviewing applications for scholarship eligibility. Apply now!
Our website is full of great information. At the top right corner of every page on stockton.edu you’ll see a Search box.  Type in a key word relating to what you are looking for and voila – you will be taken to the appropriate page! 

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. 

It won’t.  We will have the rest of your high school records with standard grades and your final transcript as proof of graduation receiving your high school diploma.  

You can download your SAT/ACT scores as a PDF from College Board or the ACT Portal and send to: 
admissions@stockton.edu.

If you are applying for a non-test optional major and are unable to take the SAT or ACT, you can take a battery of placement tests instead of the SAT or ACT.  Please know that if you have your scores from fall test dates or junior year, you can submit them for a decision.  Please reach out if you want to apply and do not have SAT or ACT scores to admissions@stockton.edu.
While College Board and ACT have cancelled the spring tests due to COVID-19, both are hoping to add make up dates in the summer. Stockton will accept additional test scores up through the beginning of the semester in September. If your scores have changed, we will recalculate your scholarship award. In the meantime, please reach out to your counselor for additional scholarship options.   
You will be notified if you need to take the placement test via your e-mail. Accuplacer has suspended all testing due to COVID-19, but they are working on moving all testing to online. Once they do so, Stockton will offer each student one free test for placement.  

Enrollment Next Steps

We understand that the current circumstances may have delayed your college decision process, so deposits are now due June 1. We are flexible with that deadline, but please note that you should submit by this date in order to ensure your invitation to our virtual orientation program in the summer.

Yes, if you are under the age of 31,  New Jersey law requires that every graduate and undergraduate student, under the age of 31, who is enrolled full-time or part-time in a course of study leading to an academic degree at any four year public or independent institution of higher education in New Jersey is required to provide evidence of immunization as a prerequisite for enrollment and for residing on campus.

 Covid-19 Questions

The University adopted an alternate instructional model for the remainder of the semester 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.

Please visit Stockton University's Coronavirus Information site for updates and helpful resources. 

 

At this time, Stockton has full intention of returning for in-person classes for the fall semester.    However, we are closely monitoring the situation and we will keep our community informed in the event we need to alter those plans based upon guidance from our NJ Governor and the CDC.  We will announce any change in our plans by late July, if necessary.
