High School Summer College students select their courses after they have been accepted to the program and issued a Stanford ID number. Summer College courses are a subset of all courses offered on campus during the Summer Quarter, and each course has 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 college credit. The departments offering these courses appear below. Clicking on the name of a particular department will enable the list of courses to appear. Clicking on the name of a course will open its description. It is important to review stated prerequisites to ensure appropriate placement in summer courses. High School Summer College participants will select their courses from the list available at this website. In rare cases, students may be allowed to enroll in courses listed at the site for undergraduates. Students who feel qualified to enroll in a more advanced course must contact the Summer Session Office for assistance.
Class schedules (meeting days and times) may be viewed by using 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 14, 2013. 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. International students requiring a Stanford sponsored I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant F-1 Student Status) may enroll in courses after receiving their Stanford ID number, but are required to verify receipt of their F-1 Student Visa by June 1 to remain in good standing for the Summer Quarter (Canadian citizens excluded). Students may verify receipt of their F-1 Student Visa by forwarding a photocopy or scan of their valid F-1 visa stamp to the Summer Session Office. Additional information is available under the International Students webpage or the International Basics tab.
