Application for Auditor or Permit to Attend Status

2021-22 Academic Year: Due to current health guidelines, auditing is only allowed for matriculated undergraduates, matriculated graduate/professional students, Stanford faculty, and Stanford staff, with the consent of the instructor. Note: Auditing status is not available in the Summer term

Matriculated students may apply for an auditor status (for those affiliated with Stanford only; no fee) or Permit to Attend Status (see Tuition and Fees for current year charges) in order to audit courses. Consult the Stanford Bulletin for applicable policies.


Request for Course Enrollment – Nonmatriculated Graduate student

If you are an admitted nonmatriculated student, obtain the approval(s) of the instructor(s) of the courses and submit the completed form by the enrollment deadline.
