Stanford University Summer Session
Stanford University Summer Session invites visiting undergraduate, graduate, and high school students to experience Stanford University during its fourth academic quarter.
During the eight-week course, Summer Session students are enrolled in the same courses as matriculated Stanford students, and earn college credit along with a Stanford University transcript. Summer Session students connect with peers from across the U.S. and around the world, and have ample opportunity to discover the unique recreational activities available on campus and in the culturally rich San Francisco Bay Area. Stanford Summer Session creates an inclusive community of learning where students are challenged to reach their fullest potential—while at Stanford and beyond.
Why Stanford Summer Session?
From the historic Stanford campus to San Francisco Bay, the mountains of Yosemite to the beaches of Monterey, your Summer at Stanford University will expand your horizons like never before.
Engage in dynamic classroom experience with world-class faculty and an impressive group of peers. Choose from over 170 courses in 40 academic disciplines. Or immerse yourself in the field of your choice with the Intensive Studies Program.
The intimate campus community allows you to make lifetime memories with new friends from all around the world, and build your network with professors, scholars, and leaders in Silicon Valley.
Located in the “heart of Silicon Valley,” participate in an endless amount of technological and entrepreneurship opportunities, including the Silicon Valley Innovation Academy(SVIA)—a hands-on experience of the start-up process, taking students through the innovation life cycle of ideas.
You will stay in a classic undergraduate residence hall. You will most likely have a roommate and you may be placed on co-ed floors. Residence halls have their own laundry facilities and computer clusters. The complexes are organized into houses, and each house has its own lounge and common area. You will eat meals with fellow students in a nearby dining commons. All Stanford residences feature convenient access to Tresidder Memorial Union, the Campus Bookstore, and classrooms.
If you live nearby, you can attend Summer Session as a commuting student. As a commuting student, you will be able to access the same on-campus facilities and participate in the same extracurricular activities as a residential student. Special programing specifically for commuting students will be offered, connecting you to a larger Bay Area network of students.
