First time students wishing to enroll in individual Stanford graduate courses for credit without being formally admitted to a degree program need to submit an application to enroll under the Non Degree Option. The academic departments will review your application and transcript(s).

If your employer is an affiliated company of the Stanford Center for Professional Development, please submit the application and wait to enroll in courses until after you have been notified that your record has been updated to reflect your company's affiliation.

To check your application status, please go to mystanfordconnection.

Due to space limitations, students enrolled under the Non Degree Option are expected to complete courses entirely online.
