Payment & Cancellation

Program Fee

Your executive education program fee includes tuition, and may also include accommodations, meals, course materials, and more. See each specific program’s overview page for complete details.

Fees are subject to change, as are programs, dates, and faculty.


Upon admission, payment details including an invoice and online payment link will be sent by email. Full payment of the invoice confirms your enrollment. Payment is accepted by bank wire transfer, or credit card (American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover).

Financial Aid

Stanford GSB does not offer financial assistance for executive education programs.

Cancellation and Deferral Policy

If you need to cancel or defer participation, you must submit your request in writing more than 30 days before the program start date to receive a full refund. Cancellations or deferrals received 15 to 30 days before the program start date are subject to a payment of 50 percent of the program fee. Requests received within 14 days of the program start date are subject to full payment of the program fee. Cancellation requests are valid only upon Stanford confirming receipt of your request.

Deferrals are subject to approval and generally only granted once per participant. The balance of a payment for a canceled or deferred program can be applied to another program within one year of the original payment date. After one year, the balance is nontransferable and nonrefundable.

Please take note that tuition fees are subject to change and, as such, increased tuition fees will apply to any postponed participation.

Travel & Visas

Stanford Executive Education is not responsible for costs related to travel or visas under any circumstances. Visa denials or delays do not warrant a refund or waiver of late notice fees.
