Special Circumstances

A Fifth Year

Undergraduates may be considered for Stanford scholarship for up to 12 quarters, including enrollment at other institutions.

  • You may apply for additional quarters of aid if you require extra time to complete the minimum requirements for your first bachelor’s degree due to academic or personal difficulties.
  • If you choose to enroll in additional quarters to pursue academic endeavors in addition to your bachelor’s degree, you may be considered for loans, job eligibility, and federal grants. However, you are no longer eligible for Stanford scholarship.

To apply for aid beyond 12 quarters, submit an Undergraduate Academic Plan in addition to all other standard application requirements.
