Coterm students in the undergraduate tuition group:
Coterm students in the graduate tuition group:
To confirm which tuition group you are in, run a graduate transcript report. Below are screen shots of how the undergraduate and graduate billing groups appear on the transcript.
Coterminal students in the undergraduate tuition group are moved to the graduate tuition group if any one of the following occurs:
Once coterm students have conferred their undergraduate degree(s), they are moved to the graduate tuition group. Once coterm students have been moved to the graduate tuition group, they may not move back to the undergraduate tuition group.
Coterm students in the undergraduate tuition group who have fewer than 12 quarters at Stanford but who want to enroll at the 8, 9, 10 unit graduate tuition rate may request to be moved to the graduate tuition group if they meet all of the below eligibility requirements. If the student meets these conditions, then the student may request to be moved to the graduate billing group by submitting a SU Services and Support Request ticket by the deadline. Students requesting to be moved to the graduate billing group in order to accept a CA/RA/TA-ship, may also submit their request via SU Services and Support Request ticket; see the Assistantships section for more information.
Students should submit their request to switch billing groups no later than the Final Study List deadline of the quarter they are requesting the billing change to be effective.
|ACTIVE DEGREE(S)||MINIMUM UNITS REQUIRED TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR UG->GR BILLING SWITCH|
|BA (including double majors, honors)||180|
|BS (including double majors, honors)||180|
|BA + BS (dual/concurrent bachelor's degree)||225|
Students are automatically moved from the undergraduate billing group to the graduate billing group once they have completed a certain number of undergraduate quarters. Undergraduate quarters are calculated in multiple ways (please refer to the calculation of undergraduate quarters section below). Once a student has completed 12 quarters (or 15 quarters, if pursuing a dual/concurrent bachelor's degree- please refer to the below chart) they will be switched or automatically placed into graduate billing upon matriculation. Students are notified via automated email of this switch, unless they are placed into the graduate billing upon matriculation in their first graduate quarter. Once students have been moved to the graduate billing group, they may not be moved back to the undergraduate billing group. Students should be advised that external transfer credit units can impact how soon they are moved to the graduate billing group, and should plan accordingly. Flex quarters taken during the 2020-21 Academic Year will not count towards a coterminal students permissible limit in the undergraduate coterm tuition group.
Undergraduate quarters, for the purpose of coterm billing, are calculated in ALL of the three ways:
|ACTIVE DEGREE(S)||# OF QUARTERS ALLOWED IN UG BILLING BEFORE AUTOMATIC MOVE TO GR BILLING||QUARTER THAT GR BILLING BECOMES EFFECTIVE|
|BA (including double majors, honors)||12 quarters||13th quarter|
|BS (including double majors, honors)||12 quarters||13th quarter|
|BAS||12 quarters||13th quarter|
|BA + BS (dual/concurrent bachelor's degree)||15 quarters||16th quarter|
Tuition and Fee information is available on the Office of the University Registrar web site.
Coterm students who receive course assistant (CA), research assistant (RA), or teaching assistant (TA) appointments from a department while still assigned to the undergraduate billing group must be moved into the graduate billing group in order to be assessed the applicable graduate tuition rate and to be funded by the department (departments are unable to enter in aid for students not active in the graduate billing group). Please see the student request to switch from undergraduate to graduate billing section above for eligibility and process information.
Students should contact a Financial Aid Counselor in the Financial Aid Office.
