Undergraduate Admissions

Prospective undergraduates interested in studying Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford apply to the university through the Undergraduate Admissions Office — not directly to the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. This allows Stanford students to explore a wide range of possible major fields before committing to a specific one.

Once convinced that Civil and Environmental Engineering is the appropriate field, students may "declare" the major during the sophomore or junior year. The major is open to all Stanford undergraduate students in good academic standing.
