Stanford Continuing Studies aims to share the university's educational resources with adult students to promote intellectual exploration and exchange. The program offers approximately 550 courses (evening, weekend and online) annually in the liberal arts and sciences, creative writing, and professional and personal development, taught by Stanford faculty and industry experts.

STAP-eligible staff may use their STAP funds to pay for tuition and registration, while non STAP-eligible staff, faculty, and students 65 years and older can receive a 20% tuition discount. Stanford Continuing Studies also offers several BeWell Berry-eligible courses per quarter and free community events throughout the year.
