The website for the Stanford Office of Undergraduate Admission lists the opportunities to learn about Stanford or connect with their office.

Can an acceptance be deferred to next year if the applicant cannot attend in the current year?

Show Hide

No. Admission offers to Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies are valid only for the year in which the decision was given. The program will not defer a participant’s acceptance to a different year. However, declining an offer of admission has no bearing on an applicant's chances for admission in subsequent years.

Can I withdraw from the program?

Show Hide

A student can withdraw prior to the start of the program. The student or parent must notify to request a withdrawal. Requests received after the refund deadline are not eligible for a refund.
