Special Registration Statuses (Undergraduate)

The following reduced-tuition categories can be requested by undergraduates in the final stages of their degree program:

Permit to Attend for Services Only (PSO)—PSO can be granted for up to two quarters to those undergraduates for whom it is academically appropriate. Undergraduates in the terminal quarter who are completing honors theses or clearing incomplete grades may petition for PSO. Undergraduates requiring registered student status can also petition for PSO. PSO does not permit any course enrollment or auditing.

13th Quarter—Undergraduates who have completed at least twelve full-time quarters may petition to register for 13th Quarter registration status at a reduced tuition rate for their final quarter, but must register for at least eight units. Undergraduate dual degree students must complete at least fifteen full-time quarters before petitioning for reduced tuition in their final quarter.

Graduation Quarter—Undergraduates may petition to register for Graduation Quarter registration status in the quarter in which they are receiving a degree if all course work and University requirements have been completed, and the student has formally applied to graduate. Undergraduates approved for completing up to 15 final units out of residence, or Last Units Out of Residence status, may also petition for Graduation Quarter. Students on Graduation Quarter are registered at Stanford and, therefore, have the rights and privileges of registered students. Only one Graduation Quarter may be requested.
