| Terrible graduate admission. This university has the worst Graduate Admission office that I ever applied to. for over 2 months my file was complete according to them and under review. I contacted them on regular basis waiting for the results. After 2 months they told me we found your missing a paper and we can't do anything until we receive it. The people work on the admission office were rude and acting like it is my fault. By that time it was late to submit it and the admission department said, the only thing we can do is to delay your application for next semester which wasn't an option for me. |

| In my opinion, Stevens has taken excessive fees to the next level. Billing by the registrar is terrible. If you ever drop a class, be prepared for the charges to linger for way too long. Non-responsive adminstration will ignore you. This school may be ok for an undergraduate who's parents are footing the bill. If you are a part time graduate student, stay away. |

| As a part-time grad student who had to work a full-time job to pay for this over-priced school, I was consistently treated disrespectfully by the staff that would even bother to show up for scheduled meetings (not many). Most professors have no interest in providing assistance or help in any way. I can't speak on the experience of a full-time student, who could be available during morning and afternoon hours, but I would think long and hard before starting any sort of part-time degree here. I would give anything to have the last 4.5 years of my life back, but instead I'm left with a as of now unfinished degree and 30+k in loans. And I am in no way bitter of bad grades, as I currently have a 4.0. |

| 90% of the students at Stevens cheat and get further ahead than those who are honest.|
Too many online courses, which makes Stevens no better than University of Phoenix.

| Extreme favoritism is rampant. Cheaters get much further ahead than the honest students. Certain faculty members blatantly favor certain students, who happen to be the biggest cheaters.|
Some faculty are approachable and some are too arrogant to have a normal conversation with, without getting insulted.

| I withdrew from this school immediately and am so happy I did. Professors are extremely arrogant and absorbed in world. They don't respond to emails or phone calls, even when I wanted to discuss my schedule for my first semester of grad school. I called/emailed the chair of the department (as instructed by the acceptance letter) during spring and summer and he tells me he's very busy. why he couldn't take 5 min to discuss a schedule is beyond me. He along with most professors wait until the day of class to return to the U.S. from their home country, forcing you to register for classes before even talking them over. It's this kind of arrogance and disrespect that made my withdrawing one of the easiest decisions I made.|
Students are very pretentious and do anything to flatter the professor: Ask them to proofread their papers, laugh at their very lame jokes, and work for them in any way, realizing they are securing a high grade in the class. Very phony people.

horrible school, no on campus jobs here, fees are high, they keep increasing the fees every semester. The professors are BIG people, real BIG people with links with BIG names in the industry, but THEY HAVE A BIG BAD EGO as well, unfortunately they use their veteran status and big name to scare the students and belittle them and not help them, there is this guy called michael zur muelen, he is one of the most shameful specimen of humanity, trust me , the only purpose he is there at stevens is to make life difficult for the students |
You wont get a job oncampus untill you are recommended by 3-4 people, no system of merit exists here, only references.
the computers are slow, the programs are confusing( thier structure keep changing every semester), you are slapped with pre-reqs for 0 credits for no fault of yours, the professors are downright arrogant and nasty ( except for a couple)
THE PEST MICHAEL ZUR MUELEN IS A HEADACHE TO EVERY1,he is so mannerless that he does not even have the courtesy to reply to emails.
PLEASE THERE ARE BETTER WAYS TO WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY rather than doing the same at this horrible ,horrible school

| I'm currently an EMTM grad student at Stevens. Yes, there are better schools like MIT and Penn etc. However, Stevens is not a second tier school by any stretch of the imagination. They are highly recognized and respected by employers in the NY/NJ area. They are less known outside of this area but this shouldn't discourage anyone who wants an excellent and well rounded technical education. So far my EMTM experience is great - challenging and rewarding. |

The instructors for online courses will post assignments late, sometimes weeks after the assignments were to be collected. Homeworks are graded months after they are turned in. Professors and advisors do not return calls or emails. PhD Students: You will most likely be handed off to some big-name and important PhD'er to assist with the authoring of your thesis. Said big-namer will be too busy to return calls, to review your drafts, or to provide input and / or suggestions to get you started.|
The financial aid office will mess up your financial aid package, which includes returning federal student loans against your wishes, not mailing out loan refund checks, and billing you for courses you took over 8 months ago.
There are much cheaper and better schools out there. I would strongly advise against Stevens.

| Disclaimer: I did my master with their webct ONLINE program. I have no idea what their campus even look like so your experience with a real oncampus program may vary.|
In my opinion, most of their professors in the online program are there to make extra money and don't really care about teaching. Recylcing of exam and course material is rampant. This one professor reuse the syllabus and other course material from another professor and forgot to change the name. There is also this other professor who use the same homework and exam every term. I also get the feeling that most of the students just want to get their degree and move on. Teaching and learning really isn't happening in the online program. In addition, the school's administrative people is EXTREMELY unhelpful to online student. That's being said, there are some professors that are dedicated to teaching and you do take something out of their classes. In my 12-course program, I would say about 4 courses or 33% fall into the professor do give a damn category.

| Stevens is a small school right near Hoboken with a huge presence. Stevens’s tech is comparable to MIT, C. Mellon, Caltech and Stanford... Stevens’s majors are highly technical/competitive with a very wide range of classes in which you can choose from. I would recommend this school only to students who want a top (ivy) education and want to be in a highly technical and managerial based career. |
Go for it! If you want a great education and a great career, make the right choice!
