We welcome all qualified students to join our summer program. Admission for visiting (non-matriculated) students is handled by Stanford Summer Session and Stanford Summer College. Matriculated Stanford students (incoming & current) should enroll via Stanford's Axess system. In addition, all applicants should submit the SEWSS Registration Form.

In general, students should have current standing as an undergraduate or already possess an undergraduate degree. Stanford Summer College (High School) students are welcome to enroll in courses that are listed as open to undergraduate freshmen (consent of instructor will be required for most courses). Where applicable, solid background in college-level chemistry, biology, math and/or fluid mechanics are highly recommended. English language proficiency is also necessary.

Both Summer Visiting students and Stanford students are requested to submit the SEWSS Registration Form in order to communicate timely information and updates.

Registered Summer Visiting students enrolled in 3 or more SEWSS courses are eligible for the SEWSS Scholars Program. Scholars successfully completing and earning C- letter-grade (1.7) or higher credit (S grades accepted) in each of three courses in this program are awarded a Letter of Recognition. Candidates must also participate in at least one SEWSS seminar, one SEWSS workshop, and one SEWSS field trip.
