The Stanford Pre-Collegiate University-Level Online (ULO) program brings motivated and academically-talented high school students together to allow them to explore their intellectual passions, develop analytic reasoning and creative thinking, and study directly with expert instructors. These online courses are offered throughout the year and give students the opportunity to take a broad offering of math and physics courses not typically offered in secondary schools. Core curriculum is delivered asynchronously and students attend synchronously once or twice a week to further develop skills and dive deeper into topics. All courses carry Stanford University Continuing Studies credit, and students earn a Stanford Continuing Studies transcript. Formerly offered as University-Level EPGY and OHSx online courses at Stanford, these courses were initially developed to be comparable to the corresponding courses in Stanford’s mathematics and physics departments. Please note that the Stanford University-Level Online and Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies offices are located at the Stanford Redwood City Campus. This position is eligible for Remote work, though some travel to the main campus may be required. Applicants currently residing in California are strongly preferred.
