Students attending Stanford Summer Session select from a list of more than 175 courses being offered during the Summer Quarter. The departments offering these courses appear below. Clicking on the name of a particular department will enable the list of courses to appear. Clicking on the name of a course will open its description. It is important to review stated prerequisites to ensure appropriate placement in Summer courses. Courses are open to all students who have completed any necessary prerequisites, unless otherwise stated.
Class schedules (meeting days and times) may be viewed by using the Explore Courses feature of Axess, Stanford's online student information system. (Use the “Filter Results” box within Explore Courses to limit course selection to the "Summer Quarter.") Courses offered during the Summer Quarter are eight weeks in length, unless otherwise noted in the course description or course details. Courses and schedules are subject to change.
Stanford does not have a standard course catalog numbering system. In general:
Eligible students enroll in Summer courses on Axess beginning Sunday, April 14, 2013. To be eligible, students must have applied, been offered and accepted admission, and been issued a Stanford ID number.
International students requiring a Stanford sponsored I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant F-1 Student Status) may enroll in courses after receiving their Stanford ID number, but are required to verify receipt of their F-1 Student Visa by June 1 to remain in good standing for the Summer Quarter (Canadian citizens excluded). International students should refer to the International Students page and the International Basics tab for instructions on status verification.
