Weekly Student Newsletters
The Approaching Stanford Newsletter is sent to all incoming undergraduate transfer students every week beginning June 7. The newsletter, delivered only to your Stanford email account, provides campus information, critical updates, and necessary action items leading up to New Student Orientation.

To add your family member to the mailing list after the Approaching Stanford Forms deadline (June 30), please send an email request with your family member's name and contact information to email@example.com.

Again, this request must come from you, the student, not your family member.
