Cardinal Compass is an online academic resource designed by Undergraduate Advising and Research (UAR) to help you craft and navigate your first year at Stanford. Find frosh friendly courses, meet your advisors, read Stanford stories by current students and faculty, and find answers to common academic questions. New students should review Cardinal Compass and, beginning August 13, schedule an appointment with your UAR Academic Advisor (Academic Advising Director or AARC Advisor). Your "New Student Advisement" Enrollment Hold will be automatically released on September 20 after: (1) you have completed an initial advising conversation with your Academic Advisor, and (2) you have arrived for NSO. Once the enrollment hold is released, you will be able to log in to Axess and register for Autumn Quarter courses.
