Class of 2025 & Transfers
We will begin the Approaching Stanford process for the Class of 2025 on May 10, and for new transfers on June 7. At that time, please use your SUNet ID to check your Stanford email account and to log into Canvas for your Approaching Stanford Forms. All Approaching Stanford and official university communications will be sent to your Stanford email account - please check your Stanford email regularly and complete required action items.
Approaching Stanford is the process that guides all new undergraduates in the transition to life on The Farm. Throughout the summer, you'll be introduced to the Stanford community while completing new student requirements. The process culminates with New Student Orientation when you move to campus in September.
Move-In & New Student Orientation
Incoming frosh and transfers will move to campus September 11-13 and New Student Orientation will take place September 14-19, 2021. All new students are required to live on campus and participate in New Student Orientation. We will share more details about the process to schedule your move-in appointment and recommend that you do not book travel until you have confirmed your move-in appointment.
A Note About Campus Events and Meetings
Please note that as an admitted or incoming student, you are not yet an enrolled student at Stanford and therefore you should not attend university-sponsored events or meetings (virtual or in-person) or join student organizations intended only for current students, before the beginning of the 2021-22 academic year. You will be able to engage with student groups and campus offices and programs through Cardinal Quad and Cardinal Days, both managed by the Office of Undergraduate Admission, and through Approaching Stanford. You are welcome to attend any university-sponsored events that are open to the public.
