5. Freshman application deadline
The deadline for submitting the Common Application First-Year Application, Stanford Supplement, and application fee/waiver is Sunday, January 1, by 11:59 PM PACIFIC TIME.
The Common Application uses an Eastern Time date stamp, so remember to subtract three hours to account for the time zone difference to determine if you submitted by our deadline. For example, if you submit your application at 10 PM Pacific Time, your Common Application account will show a January 2, 1 AM date stamp. However, because we use a Pacific Time deadline, your application was submitted in time. If "Complete" or "Downloaded" appears next to your Application and Stanford Supplement on the Common Application website, your submission was successful.
We will not accept late applications, even for technical problems with the Common Application. So do not wait until the last minute to submit your application! For more information see the announcement about the Regular Decision Application Deadline. Answers : Stanford University
