Go to the local building/zoning department and ask what is required for a legal basement apartment. In most areas, at least 50% of the basement is required to be above ground, but not everywhere.

Don't assume anything,get the facts.

Your building department will have all the specifications it requires. There are several important requirements like ceiling height and a safe egress aside from the interior stairs. Its VERY important to get a building permit and comply with the municipality for both safety and insurance reasons.

Have fun!
