You’ve been accepted to Stephens College.

Bright dreams begin here. That’s why we call ourselves the Stars. 

If you’ve received your acceptance letter, we have a few next steps for you. We can’t wait to see you shine here!


Step 1: File your FAFSA

After Oct. 1, you can file your FAFSA (the Free Application for Federal Student Aid), which also serves as your application for financial aid at Stephens. We use this information to help determine the aid, grants and scholarships for which you may be eligible. For more information, visit the Office of Financial Aid. You are always welcome to contact [email protected] with your questions, too. Stephens’ FAFSA code is 002512.


Step 2: Confirm your enrollment

Place your enrollment deposit to confirm your enrollment at Stephens. We use your date of deposit to assign housing, for example, so you’ll want to secure your spot as soon as possible.


Step 3: Attend Accepted Student Day

Attend your Accepted Student Day to get your class schedule and student ID, learn about residence halls, meet other students, and more! You may also choose another visit type (individual or virtual). If you complete any type of visit and place your enrollment deposit, you are eligible for a $1000 financial aid bonus (exceptions apply for those receiving athletic scholarships).

Step 4: Consider your housing options

Start thinking about your housing options and whether or not you’d like to bring a pet. Explore our residence halls and learn about our pet program (if you haven’t heard, Stephens is one of the pet-friendliest campuses on the planet).

I feel lucky to know how supported I am by my Stephens community.”
