Students select their courses after they have been accepted to the program and issued a Stanford ID number. Summer College courses have been recommended by its respective department as suitable for the students in our program. All courses are regular Stanford courses and, with very few noted exceptions, provide Stanford University college credit.

Find all the departments offering courses to Summer College students in the Courses Subject menu. It is important to review prerequisites to ensure appropriate placement. Summer College participants will select their courses from the list available at this website. Students who feel qualified to enroll in a more advanced course must contact the Office of Collegiate Programs for assistance.

Class schedules (meeting days and times) may be viewed by using opening the section tab under each course description, or by visiting the Explore Courses feature of Axess—Stanford’s online registration system. Use the “Filter Results” box within Explore Courses to limit course selection to the Summer Quarter. Courses offered during the Summer Quarter are eight weeks in length, unless otherwise noted in the course description or course details. Courses and schedules are subject to change.

Students register for courses via Axess beginning April 10, 2016. Students must have completed the application process, accepted their offer of admission, and been issued a Stanford ID number before they will be eligible to enroll in courses.
