Application information for current Stanford graduate students
Current Stanford graduate students wishing to apply to the Master of Science (M.S.) or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program in Management Science and Engineering should apply online using the Instructions for New Students.
It is not necessary for current Stanford graduate students to resend hard copies of transcripts or resend official test scores, as those are already in our system from the first application. Please do add your current Stanford degree onto your application, and upload your current Stanford transcript (even if there are not yet any grades reported).
Do not submit the online Graduate Authorization Petition in Axess; that is not how we review applications from current Stanford graduate students.
We have an early review deadline of 11:59pm PST on October 18, 2016, for current matriculated Stanford undergraduate and graduate students and current NDO (Non-Degree Option) students. We will review completed early M.S. applications in November, but in some cases we will need to review the whole application pool to determine the top applicants. So, some decisions will be made in November, and the rest will be made by early March, along with the decisions from our regular MS review. We do not have an early review for current Stanford graduate students applying to our Ph.D. program.
