How and when will I be notified of my decision?

From the point in time when we receive all required material to make your application complete (application, official college/university transcripts from all institutions attended, auxiliary material), it generally takes about two to three weeks to receive an answer. Decisions are sent through U.S. Postal Service (mail).

Transfer credit evaluations

A preliminary evaluation showing the number of credits Stockton is accepting in transfer is sent with the admission packet. Within several weeks of your admission, a more detailed analysis called a DegreeWorks audit will be prepared for you by Academic Advising; you will be sent a link to view it online. Classes you may be currently enrolled in at the time of admission will be added to these evaluations after those classes have been completed, a grade assigned and you have had a final transcript sent. 

Accepting the offer of admissions

If you decide to attend Stockton, complete and return the Enrollment Confirmation form included with your acceptance package and submit a $250 acceptance deposit. The deposit is credited toward your first-semester tuition. Deposits may be paid by check or money order, credit card or electronic check. For credit card or electronic check log on to your goStockton portal to submit payment.


Once we receive your enrollment deposit, we will invite you later this spring to an orientation and registration day. Orientation days are held in the summer for fall entrance and in mid-January for spring entrance. You will meet members of Stockton staff, administration, faculty and students, as well as your faculty preceptor (advisor) who will help you select your courses.


You will register for the classes you have selected after meeting with your preceptor during the Orientation day.


If you are interersted in on-campus housing, you should apply via the Student Portal as soon as you pay your acceptance deposit.   Your acceptance letter includes information for applying for on-campus housing. Options for Transfer Students include traditional residence halls with double and single rooms, double-room garden apartments and townhouses, and single room apartments. If you prefer to live off campus, our Office of Residential Life can assist by providing housing search resources. Choices range from apartment and townhouse complexes near campus to winter rentals in one of our local seashore towns.
