Special Registration Statuses for Undergraduates

Stanford students are expected to be fully engaged in their academic programs so that they can complete their undergraduate degrees in four years. Hence, undergraduates are expected to carry a full-time academic load of at least 12 units per quarter and to pay the requisite regular tuition rate. Less than full-time study, and consequently reduced tuition, may be permitted in the categories specified below. The Registrar, in consultation with the Subcommittee on Academic Standing, is responsible for approving each request to register for less than a full-time academic load.

13th Quarter (Autumn/Winter/Spring only)

Undergraduates who have completed at least twelve full-time quarters (dual-degree students: fifteen full-time quarters) may qualify for 13th quarter registration status. This status allows a reduced tuition rate for the terminal quarter; 8-unit enrollment minimum.  For more information on eligibility for 13th quarter and for information on how to apply, please see our special registration page
