Matriculated Stanford Students

Make the Most of Your Summer at Stanford!

Current Stanford Students: Enrolling in Stanford's Fourth Academic Quarter is Easy!

As a current Stanford student, you already know what spending time at Stanford can do for you – now enjoy it with an intimate group of students, professors, and professionals. Smaller classes and a curated list of activities means you’ll enjoy true hands-on learning, one-on-one time with luminaries in your chosen field, and deeper bonds across campus.

Stanford students enroll in courses during Summer Quarter to:

  • Take advantage of all that Stanford has to offer!
  • Explore new areas of interest
  • Dive deeper into a particular subject or field of study
  • Fulfill requirements
  • Accelerate your studies-- catch up or get ahead
  • Relieve pressure from future quarters' courseloads
  • Expand your network
  • Take classes while staying on campus or in the Bay Area
  • Take classes while working, interning, or researching this summer 
  • Explore online options while living away from campus
  • Prepare for your next step-- graduate school, entering the job market, etc.

Enrolling for the Summer Quarter is easy – simply register for courses on Axess beginning Sunday, April 12, 2020. Matriculated Stanford students can take courses while living on campus or as a commuter student. To apply for housing, please visit the University’s Residential & Dining Enterprises website.
