Online registration
(STAP funds only)

STARS (Stanford Training and Registration System) is a web-based tool for the Stanford community to find and register for the training they need. STARS is available via Axess. A SUNet ID is required to enroll in classes.

Note: If you are a University staff member working at least half time, the Staff Training Assistance Program (STAP) will pay your IT Services course fees up to $800 per fiscal year.

If you are using any other method of payment (PTA or Hospital Tuition), you will need to enroll via the Paper Registration Form at the top of the page.

To enroll in IT Services courses online (using STAP funds) in STARS:

  1. Login into the Axess Portal.
  2. Click the "STARS (Training)" tab at the top of the page.
  3. In "Search Catalog", enter the course number (e.g., ITS-1234) or class title
  4. Click "Continue" to see more information about the class.
  5. Click "Enroll" to register.

For help using STARS, click the "Help for Learners" link along the left side of the page, under "Menu".

Paper registration forms (if using PTA or Hospital Tuition Assistance)

If you are paying course fees using any combination of University account number (PTA) or Hospital Tuition Assistance, you must enroll using the above registration form. Please download the form, complete all required fields, and fax to (650) 725-0995.
