University Communication with Students

Looking for something else? Visit the Student Policies page.

Stanford University uses electronic means (such as email, texts, and the Internet) as a method of communication and of providing billing, payment, and enrollment services. For many University communications, email to a student’s Stanford email account is the official form of notification to the student, and emails sent by University officials to such email addresses will be presumed to have been received and read by the student. Signatures or acknowledgements provided by a student electronically to the University via Stanford systems and/or @stanford.edu email are valid and legally binding.

Notification/Obligation to Read Email

For many University communications, email to a student's Stanford email account is the official form of notification to the student, and emails sent by University officials to such email addresses will be presumed to have been received and read by the student. Emails and forms delivered through a SUNet account by a student to the University may likewise constitute a formal communication, with the use of this password-protected account constituting the student's electronic signature.

Obligation to Pay Charges

By accepting Stanford's offer of admission and enrolling in classes, each student accepts responsibility for paying all debts to the University, including tuition and fees, for which he or she is liable. An individual's registration as a Stanford student constitutes his or her agreement to make timely payment of all amounts due. Stanford students have access to financial literacy resources through the Mind Over Money program including the Haven Money tool and 1:1 financial coaching for personal finance education.
