Axess has been open for winter course enrollment since Oct. 24, but currently undeclared juniors are unable to register due to the hold placed on their accounts preventing winter quarter enrollment. Though technically required to choose a major by the end of sophomore year, a handful of juniors delay this deadline until the end of fall quarter of junior year.
Before this year’s freshmen sign up for classes on Axess, they must first make sure they don’t have a hold on their account. Starting with the Class of 2014, undeclared students must meet at least once a quarter with their pre-major adviser. To ensure the plan’s adoption, students who neglect to meet with their advisers will face an enrollment hold that only their advisers can lift.
For a certain subset of Stanford seniors, this fall’s workload and stress levels derive only partially from their course loads. With the pressure of LSATs, GREs, GMATs, medical school applications and interviews, some seniors are busy planning for the next stage of their education–while still wrapping up their current one.
For Stanford students seeking to complete projects in the arts, two major grant-funding sources provide financial support for arts projects, but cannot be used to compensate performers. The restriction presents distinct challenges for students hoping to complete projects in music, dance, theatre and other performing arts, which are popular ventures at the end of spring quarter, when students present senior recitals and other end-of-year performances.
