Summer Courses

Over the summer, LSP residential students will enroll in two courses (one-unit each) - a college-level writing course, a math problem-solving course, or a chemistry course, and a research course. These hands-on, small group-oriented courses focus on enhancing your analytical thinking, sharpening your problem-solving abilities, and developing scholarly research skills. Beginning in the summer of 2022, there will be a new virtual offering for students who are unable to come to campus due to other responsibilities or commitments. Students enrolled in LSP virtual will take a one-unit math problem-solving course that will be taught synchronously online. The courses are graded on a Satisfactory/No Credit basis. 

Fall and Winter Quarter Seminar (UAR 42A and 42B)

Leland Scholars participating in the summer program will enroll in a one-unit course during the fall and winter quarters of their first year. This small, weekly seminar continues the themes of community from the summer while also preparing you to take advantage of your time at Stanford.

We welcome more first-year students to join the LSP cohort by opening the course enrollment to anyone who may not have been able to join the summer program and would like to become a part of this supportive and engaging community.
