The Transfer Common Application asks about personal information such as:
You will also have the opportunity to tell us about yourself by describing your educational journey, academic honors, listing your extracurricular activities, noting any work experience and writing an informative and insightful essay.
Our holistic review allows us to consider each applicant's unique circumstances and educational background. We recognize that many of our transfer applicants have followed non-traditional routes to higher education, and we welcome the diverse perspectives these students bring to campus. Additionally, we understand that family, personal or financial circumstances may prevent students from participating in traditional extracurricular activities; use the Common Application to explain your specific situation.
Access the Stanford Supplement online at The Common Application.
We recommend submitting the Stanford Supplement at the same time as the Transfer Common Application and fee or fee waiver request. Your application will not be reviewed unless all three are submitted successfully.
We view the Stanford Supplement as your opportunity to tell us about yourself by describing some of your favorite personal activities, social interests and writing informative and insightful short essays. The Stanford Supplement helps us to understand your individual experiences and insights.
No two applicants in our pool are the same, so we take great care to ensure we review your application within the context of your surroundings. The information you provide about yourself on the Stanford Supplement assists us in interpreting and evaluating your transcripts, test scores, essays and evaluation letters.
