Additional Admissions Questions

Will participants have the opportunity to speak to someone in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions?

Show Hide

While not guaranteed, a representative from the Stanford Office of Undergraduate Admissions is typically scheduled to give a presentation to participants during their program. If participants are interested in a more formal meeting with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, they must make arrangements independently.

Can an acceptance be deferred to next year if the applicant cannot attend in the current year?

Show Hide

No. Admission offers to Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies are valid only for the year in which the decision was given. The program will not defer a participant’s acceptance to a different year. However, declining an offer of admission has no bearing on an applicant's chances for admission in subsequent years.

Can I withdraw from the program?

Show Hide

A student can withdraw prior to the start of the program. The student or parent must notify precollegiate@stanford.edu to request a withdrawal. Requests received after the refund deadline, May 26 2022, are not eligible for a refund.
