Welcome new students! The Approaching Stanford team in Undergraduate Advising and Research will help guide you through your transition to Stanford. We'll be updating this website in May 2014 with new content, so please check back in May when we launch the Approaching Stanford process for the Class of 2018 and new transfers. In the meantime, please feel free to browse the information and resources provided below to the Class of 2017 and new transfers.
This is the full PDF version of the 2013 handbook, which will guide you through your transition to Stanford. Read it carefully and completely. Review pages 1-19 first, in order to complete your Approaching Stanford Forms.
All incoming freshmen and transfers are required to enroll in Autumn Quarter, but new undergraduates will enroll in Autumn Quarter courses on a different timeline and, in some instances, through different processes than returning students.
This is your go-to location for all PDF documents from Approaching Stanford, including individual sections of the handbook (which are smaller and easier to open). This list will be updated throughout the summer as additional publications are released.
