Main content start

Application instructions for current Stanford graduate students are the same for PhD, MS, and HCP (part-time MS) applications. 

This page contains important information and links to the application timelines/deadlines and process for current students.

Apply to MS or PhD (same process as new students)

It is not necessary for current Stanford graduate students to resend hard copies of transcripts or to resend official test scores, because those are already in Stanford's system from the original application. Please do add your current Stanford degree onto your electronic 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.
