POLICIES FOR ALL STS MAJORS

  • All degree courses must be taken for a letter grade if offered. If declared after 8/31/2013, must receive a minimum grade of C in all Core Courses. 
  • Courses cannot be taken for less than the minimum amount of units listed in the attached course menus, even if the course is offered for fewer units.
  • Courses may not be double-counted toward both Core and Concentration Area requirements.
  • AP credit does not count toward the STS major.
  • Students may use only one introductor computer science course, CS 105 OR CS 106A, toward STS Core and Concentration Area requirements if declared after 8/31/2013. 
  • Students are responsible for any prerequisites. It is recommended that STS majors take the Math Calculus sequence (or have AP credit), as many technical courses approved for concentrations require it.
  • Students may petition up to 5 units of approved individual research towards their concentration area.
  • Students may count no more than two approved course petitions (subject to STS staff approval) toward their individual STS Concentration Area requirements (courses may not be petitioned for the Core). Freshman seminars are not eligible for petition.
  • Transfer students may petition equivalent and/or relevant STS coursework from institutions outside Stanford University, provided the Registrar has already awarded transfer credit. All such petitions are subject to approval by the STS faculty director.
