Virtual Visit Programs

    We know that nothing can replace visiting a college campus in person and experiencing that energy for yourself firsthand; we hope we will be able to offer that opportunity again soon. In the meantime, we hope our virtual offerings will give you a slice of what you would have experienced in person.

    Please note: The “Virtual Visit” events listed are umbrella events that encompass the Discover Stanford Information Session and a Student Forum. While completing the registration, you will have the ability to select the specific parts of the program you would like to attend. You are not required to stay for the entire time. Themed Panels will require separate registration.

    Click through the calendar on the right to browse the available virtual opportunities. Upcoming events are posted through the month of August (please note: all times listed are U.S. Pacific Time), and include the following:
     


    The Discover Stanford information session is designed to help high school students, and prospective transfers explore the programs, places, and people that define Stanford’s commitment to undergraduate education within the setting of a world-class university. This is a 45-minute virtual information session conducted by a representative from the Office of Undergraduate Admission; the representative will discuss characteristics that make Stanford distinctive, as well as Stanford’s admission process and commitment to financial aid.

    Please note that Stanford does not track demonstrated interest as part of the admission process. Online engagement is optional and will not be part of the review of your application.

    Further information about applying to Stanford is available at the Stanford Undergraduate Admission website.

    • Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 2:00pm
    • Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00am


    Designed for prospective undergraduates only, these 45-minute forums are live question and answer sessions with current Stanford undergraduates, and will discuss what it’s like to attend Stanford. Topics covered can include a wide variety, such as: housing and dining, dorm life, student life, and academics.

    These sessions are meant to supplement the Discover Stanford Information Session; as such, admission questions will not be answered during these sessions.
