Financial Aid

A Stanford Education is Possible.

Stanford offers comprehensive, need-based financial aid that makes it possible for all admitted undergraduate students to attend — and we do not expect students to borrow to meet their need. Learn how the program works, or use the net price calculator to get an award estimate based on your family’s financial situation.
