Your Application Starts Here
Are you ready to join our community? The next step is to apply for admission! Please review the items below before you start your application:
Find Your Program
Stanford Summer Session offers a transformative educational experience to a number of student populations. Familiarize yourself with information specifically for you by visiting the Programs section. You will need to know which student type you belong to in order to access the correct application.
Review the Program Dates and Eligibility Requirements
Pay special attention to the program dates as these are not flexible, and confirmed students may not arrive to the program late or leave before they complete classes. Stanford Summer Session welcomes students from all over the world; however, we do have a few eligibility requirements that vary among student population.
Calculate Your Estimated Tuition and Fees
Figure out your Summer’s estimated cost by answering a couple quick questions. Stanford Summer Session offers need-based tuition grants that you can apply for during the application process. Read more about eligibility for these grants on the Tuition Grants page.
Prepare Application Materials
The Application Process slider outlines the necessary materials and requirements needed in order to complete the application and can answer any questions you may have about the process. If you are an international student, please make sure to also review the International Requirements page to prep any additional items that are required to apply.
Double-Check the Application Deadlines
Stanford Summer Session offers an Early Decision round of admissions before it moves into rolling admissions. We suggest that you apply as early as possible as residential space and tuition grants are limited. Review the Dates and Deadlines page for more information.
