Special Tuition Rates for Undergraduates, 2018-19

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.

Special Tuition Rates for Graduate Students, 2018-19

Matriculated graduate students are expected to register at the full-tuition rate applicable to their degree program unless they are in the final stages of their degree programs and therefore in a special reduced tuition category. Eligible categories are listed below. See Special Registration Statuses for Graduate and Professional Students for eligibility.

Special conditions apply to students admitted as coterminal graduate students; for more information, see Procedures for Coterminal Students (pdf).

Students in the Stanford Law School, Graduate School of Business, or in the M.D. program in the School of Medicine should consult appropriate school officers about tuition reduction eligibility.

Summer Quarter Tuition, 2018-19

Matriculated Stanford Students 2018-19

Stanford students may enroll in courses on Axess beginning on April 7, 2018. A separate application is not required to enroll in Summer Quarter. Stanford students are assessed the undergraduate or graduate tuition rate based on the degree program that they are pursuing.

Stanford international students who have been fully enrolled for three prior, consecutive quarters and will be fully enrolled in Autumn Quarter 2019-20 are not required to enroll in Summer Quarter 2018-19. Such students who choose to enroll in Summer Quarter may enroll for fewer than 8 units.

Undergraduate and Graduate Summer Visitors

Undergraduate and graduate summer visitors must be approved to enroll in Summer Quarter. Visiting college students must submit an application to the Summer Session Office. Visit the Summer Session web site for more information. (Note: applications for Summer 2019 visitors open in January 2019; visit the Summer Session web site for exact dates.)

Visiting students are assessed tuition based upon their admission status. Students who have completed an undergraduate degree are considered graduate students and are assessed graduate tuition. Students who have not completed an undergraduate degree are considered undergraduates and are assessed undergraduate tuition.

Visiting students must enroll in at least 12 units to be considered full-time students. See Certifications and Verifications for complete certification and verification information.

International summer visitors who have received an I-20 from Stanford are required to enroll in 8 units.
