Academic Support and Advisement

Summer Session is all about academic success! To ensure that you have the best possible summer experience, we provide dedicated tutors and advisors to support your studies and answer your academic questions through the Summer Academic Resource Center (SARC).

Tutoring is available for most Summer Session courses. Get help from Stanford students specially trained to work with the shorter and more intense Summer Session courses. Tutoring schedules and information will be provided in the Welcome Packet you receive at the beginning of Summer Quarter.

Academic advisors are available throughout the summer to assist you with adding and dropping courses, making sure you have chosen the correct grading basis, and figuring out what to do if a class just isn’t working for you. Please plan to see them before the Final Study List deadline and anytime you need help over the summer. They may also reach out to you if they notice that you have an academic issue that needs to be addressed. The Welcome Packet you receive at check-in will have summer hours and contact information. No appointment is required–just drop in!
