Stanford Summer Session

 Stanford Summer Session invites you to experience the thrill of campus life at one of the world's premiere universities. Undergraduate and graduate students from across the country and around the world are invited to apply to Stanford to take 8-9 week courses during the Summer Quarter. Courses are available in a wide range of subjects, or as part of a specific Intensive Studies Program. Students build their own schedule from more than 175 courses offered by 35 departments within the schools of Humanities and Sciences, Earth Sciences, and Engineering. In addition, our unique program balances challenging academics with recreational and social activities including residence hall events, world-renowned speakers, and weekly trips to explore the San Francisco Bay Area. Upon completion of the program, students can request an official Stanford transcript and may be eligible to transfer credit back to their home institution.
