2021-2022 Academic Calendar

The Registrar's Office at Stanford manages the academic calendar and will post the 2021-22 calendar this summer. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the dates and deadlines listed may differ from years past so please pay close attention to the dates for each academic year. Below are the tentative quarterly dates for the upcoming academic year; all dates are subject to change at the discretion of the University. For those looking to schedule travel throughout the year, we strongly encourage you to wait until you have your course syllabi in hand before making plans.
