A Brief History of Stevens

VO:
Stevens is named for a distinguished family who perpetuated a tradition in American engineering, dating back to the early days of the Industrial Revolution in 1784. John Stevens, a colonel in the Revolutionary War, purchased, the land included in the present-day 55-acre campus of the college, from the State of New Jersey. Before 1800, Col. Stevens was a pioneer in the development of the steamboat, and by 1825 he had designed the first American-built steam locomotive.

Robert Stevens, one of Col. Stevens' sons, invented the T-rail, the form of railroad track in use today throughout the World. With his brother, Edwin, Robert built and operated the first commercial railroad in the United States. Edwin was also active in the design and construction of ironclad vessels for the U.S. Navy. With another brother, John Cox Stevens (the first commodore of the New York Yacht Club), Edwin joined in the syndicate that built and raced the yacht "America." In 1851, that vessel defeated all the English contenders to become the first winner of the famed trophy now known as the America's Cup.

When Edwin Stevens died in 1868, his will provided for the establishment of the college which bears his family name, through a generous contribution of land and funds for building and endowment. Stevens Institute of Technology opened its doors in 1870. The original trustees determined that Stevens should have a single, rigorous engineering curriculum leading to a baccalaureate degree they designated "Mechanical Engineer." The undergraduate program, firmly grounded in scientific principles, encompassed most of the then existing and emerging engineering disciplines.

Stevens’ current president, Harold J. Raveché, became the sixth president of the university in 1988. His vision for Stevens is to educate leaders who create, apply and manage innovative technologies while maintaining a deep regard for human values. During his tenure he has launched many new initiatives including an extensive campus revitalization program all aimed at preparing Stevens students for success in a competitive global society.

Graduate students at Stevens Institute of Technology can borrow from a variety of loan programs that offer flexible repayment, low interest rates and funding sufficient to cover tuition, fees and normal living expenses. Federal Direct Student Loans are available to matriculated students taking at least six credits per semester who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Resident Aliens. In order to find out if you qualify, you must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This universal financial aid application can be completed on hard copy (available from the Student Service Center or many public libraries) or online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Information you provide on this form is forwarded to Stevens (use school code number 2819 to identify Stevens as the school to which your information is sent), and upon receipt, a Financial Aid staff member will determine your eligibility and notify you in writing.

Loans and Work Study cont.


VO:
Qualified students may receive up to $18,500 annually from the Federal Direct Student Loan program; a maximum of $8,500 of that amount is available without accrual of interest while the student is enrolled (known as Subsidized Loans). The amount of loan subsidy for which each student qualifies varies, and you may borrow less if you wish. The difference between the maximum $18,500 and the amount of the Subsidized Loan can be borrowed as an Unsubsidized Loan, on which interest accrues during enrollment. That interest can be paid quarterly or capitalized (added back to the principal). Subsidized loans do not have to be repaid (interest or principal) until six months after you leave school or cease enrollment on at least a half-time basis.

Borrowers must complete a promissory note, which will be mailed to you along with a notification of eligibility from the Student Service Center. This promissory note typically needs to be completed only once during your enrollment at Stevens. Once all paperwork is completed, the loan is credited to your account (no earlier than approximately 2-3 weeks into the semester), and if the loan disbursement creates a credit balance, a refund check is issued to you by mail.

Loans and Work Study cont.


VO:
For students who do not meet the criteria for Federal Student Loan programs, including international students, loans from private sources can be borrowed to meet all or most of your annual costs. These private loans, also known as alternative loans, are not based on financial need, but in most cases a credit check is completed by the lender in order to determine eligibility. Stevens does not play a role in determining who is eligible to borrow these funds.

Please note that, although several of these programs are available to international students, in some cases a co-signer who is a US citizen is required. These loans are also generally available to students who have not yet matriculated into a degree program (or do not intend to), and also to students taking fewer than the six credits per semester required for Federal Loans.

VO:
International students (those studying in the U.S. on visas) may qualify for Graduate Assistantships and several private loan programs that are available. We also recommend that international students investigate other funding sources in their homeland prior to beginning their studies. Graduate students may also be offered part-time employment under the auspices of the Federal Work Study Program. This is a need-based Federal aid program that pays students an hourly wage for a variety of technical and/or clerical positions in offices and departments around the Stevens campus. Students are paid twice per month and must be enrolled on at least a half-time basis (6 credits per semester).

Number 5: Two Letters of Recommendation. Recommendations should come from someone capable of judging your ability to do graduate level study, such as current or former professors from your Bachelor's or Master’s degree or employers.

Once the Office of Graduate Admissions has received all the necessary documents, the application will be forwarded to the appropriate academic departments for final review. Graduate Admissions will inform applicants of the decision by mail.

Official transcripts must be submitted in sealed envelopes. If official documents are unavailable, unofficial documents can be used for initial review temporarily, however, applicants will not be fully admitted until all official documents have been received.
