You + Stanford

It just makes sense.

Next Steps

    • You will need to set up your SUNet ID and Password to do so.
    • You will also need to make sure you have official test scores on file sent directly from College Board or ACT.
  2. Bookmark this site. We will be making regular updates to the site.
  3. RSVP for an Admitted Student Reception near you.
  4. Join the Class of 2022 Facebook Page and follow Stanford on Twitter and Instagram. Please allow several days for your Facebook request to be processed.

  6. All enrolling students who are neither U.S. citizens nor legal permanent residents must submit your Declaration of Finances form. Stanford will not issue the documents required to secure your visa and enter the U.S. until Stanford receives and processes this form. Check the Bechtel International Center (I-Center) website for more details.
