STANFORD UNIVERSITY

Autumn Quarter 2020-21 Enrollment

(Data as of October 26, 2020)

Number of Students Enrolled by Level

The Major Student Headcount counts each student under every major/study field they are pursuing.  For instance, a double major undergraduate is counted twice, once under each major plan.  Students pursuing multiple graduate degrees are counted under each degree plan.

There are two exceptions to the above rule: one exception is coterminal students.  These students are currently counted only once, under the career/plan in which they are being charged tuition at the time of the headcount.  The other exception is graduate students pursuing both a master's and a Ph.D. in the same study field; such students are counted only once under the Ph.D. plan."
