Welcome, Transfers!

The Approaching Stanford and New Student Orientation team is thrilled to welcome you as the newest members of the Stanford community. We are eager to get to know you throughout the Approaching Stanford process this summer and engage in orientation events this fall.

At this time, please create your Stanford University Network ID (SUNet ID). When the Approaching Stanford process begins, you will need to use your SUNet ID to check your Stanford email account and to complete your Approaching Stanford Requirements. All Approaching Stanford and official university communications will be sent to your Stanford email account.

In early June, you will receive your first Approaching Stanford Newsletter by email and gain access to Canvas, both of which will be critical sources of information as you begin your Stanford journey. Your required Approaching Stanford Forms, which include academic interests and your housing application, will be due at the end of June. As we get closer to the fall, we'll share the schedule of events and programs that will introduce you to the rich academic, social, and cultural life at Stanford through New Student Orientation.
