Summer Academic Resource Center (SARC)

About SARC

In addition to Stanford’s world-renowned faculty and libraries, the Summer Academic Resource Center (SARC) offers free academic support services including tutoring and academic advising to visiting and matriculated Stanford students enrolled in the University’s summer quarter. 

During Summer Quarter, students receive a weekly newsletter with the SARC schedule and updates. Confirmed students can also find this information posted on the SARC Canvas Page, which will be available by the beginning of summer quarter.


SARC Canvas Page

The tutoring schedule is posted on our Canvas site week by week. Students confirmed into the program with a Stanford ID will automatically be enrolled into the SARC Canvas page by the beginning of summer quarter. 

Students can access tutoring by booking one-on-one appointments in advance or by visiting in-person drop-in tutoring hours.


Summer Tutoring


Our tutors hold drop-in tutoring hours at Harmony House, located at 561 Lomita Drive. Please view our Canvas page for hours and tutor profiles. 

Tutors facilitate virtual by-appointment tutoring sessions that support the majority of courses offered in the Summer Quarter. For tutoring by appointment, you need to register in advance and will meet with a tutor one-on-one. We offer a limited number of in-person drop-in sessions. For drop-in sessions, you don't need to sign up in advance and don't need to arrive at the beginning of a session or stay for the entire time.

Summer tutoring doesn't offer SAT, ACT, GRE, or other standardized test tutoring. Our mission is to support students for the Stanford Summer Quarter curriculum.

Services for Non-native English Speakers / ESL Students

Non-native English speakers can come to any tutoring session (STEM, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Writing sessions). Some tutors offer writing sessions with an ESL focus; you can choose to go to those or to any Writing session. Some of our workshops also address topics that are particularly relevant to non-native English speakers and international students.

Academic Workshops

Academic Workshops are offered in-person every week in a variety of areas. SARC workshops address core academic skills and academic life at Stanford.


Summer Academic Advising

Summer Academic Advisors serve visiting Summer Session students (visiting undergraduate and graduate students). Academic Advisors assist with course selection and requirements, drop/add procedures, selecting and changing of grading options, course withdrawal and annulment processes, and the academic petitions associated with each of these areas.

Stanford matriculated students should contact their respective graduate and undergraduate advisors for Summer Quarter advising.

SARC offers by-appointment virtual advising. 

Available to all students.

Academic support services are available to all students enrolled in Stanford’s Summer Quarter free of charge.
