Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
As soon as you apply. We cannot admit you without your official transcript(s). If
you are currently taking classes, be sure to follow up with a second transcript once
the semester ends so we can 'capture' those credits as well. Paper transcripts and
other academic material should be sent to:
Office of Admissions
101 Vera King Farris Drive
Galloway, NJ 08205.
Unfortunately, no. Transcripts must be official, either mailed or sent electronically directly from all previous colleges/universities you've attended within the US. If transferring from outside the US, the transcripts must be evaluated by one of the approved agency:
- World Education Services (WES)
- Education Credential Evaluators (ECE).
- SpanTran: The Evaluation Company (SpanTran)
SpanTran Evaluation Request Form - Stockton University
Please note: From the point you order your transcript, it usually takes a week to ten days for us to receive it, even if sent electronically.
