Together, we are preparing for the 2020-21 academic year with your health and education as top priorities. This website contains current information for Stanford’s 9,400 new and continuing graduate students, including those pursuing professional degrees. Faculty and staff who support and advise students will also find useful information here.

Students, please be sure to read the information sent by your school, department or program staff and faculty, too. For graduate students, even the academic calendar varies by degree.

The information on this site is actively curated by staff in Stanford’s seven Schools and in the offices of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Vice Provost for Student Affairs. 

We welcome your suggestions and questions via this webform.
