International students are highly recommended to submit completed Admissions applications with all supported documents to Stockton by the deadlines below: 

Fall Admission (September): May 30

Step I. Admission Applications (Transfer)

A student who has attended a college or university following graduation from high school and has attempted college credits by the application deadline is considered a TRANSFER APPLICANT. Transfer applicants must submit an official transcript from EACH institution attended - even if only for one course. Official transcripts for college credits earned while still in high school must be sent directly from the institution through which those credits were earned. Applicants with fewer than 15 non-basic skills credits completed at the time of application must also submit official high school transcripts (or high school equivalency test (GED) scores and high school transcripts for years attended). Students who have earned 15 or more credits but have NOT received an associate degree at the time of application must also include a copy of high school diploma (or GED certificate).

In addition to secondary education credentials, students transferring from other colleges or universities must submit official copies of all transcripts from all institutions attended. 

If transferring from outside the United States, the transcripts must be evaluated by one of the following agency: 

The amount of advanced standing granted to transfer students is determined through an official evaluation of all courses taken.  Students admitted with advanced standing, in general, are given credit for college level courses completed with a grade of "C" or above and as long as such courses correspond to an existing Stockton course in content and quality and are requirements of a degree at Stockton.  No credit evaluation will be made until the student has been granted admission.

ONLY for applicants with fewer than 15 non-basic skills credits completed at the time of application: 

  • From British-patterned systems: School marks, records and testimonials, certified true copies of original school certificates, diplomas, GCE ‘O’ and ‘A’ levels, or local equivalent such as West African School Certificate, Hong Kong Certificate of Education, etc.
