Waitlisted? Didn't Apply? Second Round Applications
Hoping for a space in SoCo? We typically continue to accept applications after the original deadline for classes with very short waitlists or open spaces. Review is rolling so the earlier you apply, the better your chances.
Courses currently accepting applications
- Evolution: The Unity and Diversity of Life Why do hammerhead sharks have a strange front end? Do flying squid really fly? Why do you have a vermiform appendix? Uncover how evolutionary principles help us understand and conserve the Earth's biodiversity. (Carta for similar class)
- Classical California Spend a day in LA at a reconstructed Roman villa and build a digital museum (Carta comments)
- Spanish Immersion | Community Stories: Ancient and Contemporary Culture, Tradition, and Work among Latinos in the Bay Area Learn to dream in Spanish, and work closely with the Spanish-speaking community in the Bay Area. (Carta Comments)
"But I already applied to 3 seminars....?"
No problem! You can submit additional applications for these courses; we will rank them 4th, 5th, or 6th, as needed.
Waitlisted, Not Admitted, and Space Available Seminars
If there are still seminars with spaces available in early May, students who were declined or waitlisted in the original application round will also be invited to apply in second-round applications. If you aren’t sure which applies to you, check your status at vcasc.stanford.edu after status is released in early May.
What Are Your Chances of Getting Off the Waitlist?
Most faculty create a general waitlist pool and will select students from the waitlist based on the goal of shaping a vibrant and diverse seminar learning community, and not on a formal ranking system. We will contact you should a space become available for you.
If you are interested in submitting an application(s) for Second-Round or Space Available Seminars we encourage you to do so, as your odds of participating in SoCo are much higher than moving off a waitlist.
