The Summer Session Office has created the following table to assist students in calculating their total summer costs. This estimate is based on an 8-unit tuition charge for all International Honors Program Students, calculated on student being assessed at the undergraduate rate. Students should refer to the Tuition by Units table and the Explanation of Fees descriptions for additional information about each of these items:
|Programs Fees & Expenses||Undergraduate Residential|
|Meal Plan - 19 meals/week||1,391|
|Campus Health Services Fee||173|
|Health Insurance Fee||$846|
Tuition is assessed according to the number of units a student enrolls in. Students attending Stanford as part of the Summer International Honors Program are required to enroll in a minimum of 8 quarter units. The University will automatically bill for 8 units, and adjust upward if more units are added. All international students obtaining an I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant F-1 Student Status) sponsored by Stanford are required to enroll in a minimum of 8 units. The Summer Session Office will monitor enrollment throughout the quarter to ensure compliance.
The table below lists Summer Quarter tuition rates at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Students will be assessed either the undergraduate or the graduate rate depending upon their current matriculation.
|1, 2, or 3||$3,222||$2,604|
* Undergraduate students must petition the Undergraduate Advising and Research (UAR) office to enroll in more than 20 units.
Each student in our program is responsible for his or her own University Bill. The Stanford Summer International Honors Program agreement typically assigns responsibility for payment to the home institution, and in most cases our students make payment to their home college or university directly. Each student should review his or her own bill during the course of the summer to verify the status of his or her account.
University housing is available to all students enrolled in the Stanford Summer International Honors Program, and they must live on campus to participate in the program. Students will enroll in housing and a meal plan once they have been accepted to the program, and have received their Stanford Student ID Number. Completion of online application and acceptance forms by April 15 will allow SSIHP students to apply for housing specifically designated for them.
Application Fee. $75, nonrefundable.

Meal Plan - 19 meals/week. All students are assigned to a 19-meal-per-week plan. All meals are served cafeteria style and feature a number of options suitable for almost any dietary plan. More information can be found by visiting Stanford Dining.
Campus Health Services Fee. All registered students are required to pay a quarterly fee to cover the costs of services provided by Stanford's Vaden Health Center. All students in our programs are eligible to receive services at Vaden, which include: primary care medical services, counseling and psychological services, and health and wellness programs. Please visit the Vaden website for more information.
Document Fee. A one-time fee of $100 is charged to all students, except students who are returning to Stanford and have previously paid the Document Fee. The fee offsets the cost of maintaining student records, processing transcript requests, and other registration related services.
Telecom Fee. All residential students pay this fee, which covers the costs of telephone and internet service in the dorm room. A number of add-on features are available by subscription from Information Technology Student Services (ITSS). Telephones are provided and students must bring their own computer for in-room use.
House Dues. A fee of $50 is charged to all students in Stanford housing for Summer 2012. House dues are for services not included in room rent, such as educational programs and social activities. This fee is subject to change.
Books/Supplies. Costs listed for books and supplies are merely estimates. Textbooks will need to be purchased by each student and the costs will be determined by the courses in which the student enrolls.
Parking Fee. Parking permits are available through Stanford's Parking & Transportation Services Office. Commuting students should consider proximity to classes and the number of days they will be on campus per week when making their permit purchase decision. Residential students can purchase a parking permit for their designated house or dorm areas, but may not purchase a commuter permit. There is no free parking available on the Stanford campus.
Health Insurance Fee. All students enrolled in courses at Stanford are required to have health insurance. The University will automatically enroll students in Stanford's Cardinal Care health insurance plan and charge $846 for the Summer Quarter. If a student feels their international insurance plan provides adequate coverage for the eight-week quarter, their insurance company must complete the Insurance Coverage Certification Form and forward it to Vaden Health Center for review. The Vaden Insurance Office staff will assess whether minimum standards have been met and inform the student whether the waiver has been approved or denied. The deadline to submit this document is June 1, 2012. If approved, the waiver will be entered into Axess for the student by the Vaden Health Center. If denied, the student will be required to enroll in Stanford's Cardinal Care health insurance plan and pay the $846 fee.
Summer Quarter financial aid is available only to current Stanford undergraduate and graduate students. Questions should be directed to Stanford's Financial Aid Office or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visiting students might have financial aid arrangements offered through their home institutions and should request further information from them.
