International Applicants:-
International students have been an integral part of the university from its inception. Stanford is committed to enrolling a student body that includes students from around the world. The interactions among students with different backgrounds and experiences create a dynamic environment in which to learn and live.
Members of there admission staff specialize in evaluating educational systems from countries around the world and will consider your application within the context of the resources available to you. They  recognize the educational procedures within your school and country as well as cultural and regional differences.
Submitting Your Application:-
The application process is the same for all applicants regardless of citizenship or country of residence. Review and follow there Freshman Application Instructions or there Transfer Application Instructions.
All applicants must submit the Common Application and the Stanford Supplement online through the The Common Application. Unless they are approved in advance by the Director of Admission, paper applications will not be accepted or reviewed.
Financial Aid:-
Regardless of citizenship, applicants are reviewed in the context and country where they attend high school. In addition, Stanford is committed to meeting demonstrated financial need for all admitted students (regardless of citizenship) who have requested financial aid during the application process.
If you are not a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident, your request for financial aid will be a factor in there admission evaluation. Because of the limited financial aid resources available to international citizens, Stanford can offer admission with financial aid to just a small number of international citizens each year. International citizens who indicate on their applications that they will not be applying for financial aid and subsequently are admitted are not eligible to apply for financial aid at any time during their four years at Stanford. 
Stanford is need-blind for all U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents (regardless of the country where you attend high school). This means a request for financial aid will not be a factor in our admission evaluation. Visit our financial aid website for more information and the required application forms.
Non-U.S. Educational Systems:-
Official documents that note your grades, marks, or any predictions are required and must be sent directly from your school as part of your application. There is no need to have your marks converted into an American GPA.
If your school uses a non-U.S. grading system, ask your school counselor to submit the International Supplement Form(PDF) in addition to the School Report.While there are no courses or minimum scores required to secure admission to Stanford, we recommend completing the necessary coursework to apply to a university program for a bachelor's degree in your home country. 
Non-English-Speaking Schools:-
Fluency in English is a prerequisite for undergraduate admission at Stanford. However, if you attend a school where the primary language of instruction is not English, you will not be at a disadvantage.
Official copies of your original transcripts and teacher evaluations are required. These must also be translated into English and copies of the translated documents provided with your application. Translations may not be completed by the applicant. However, they encourage applicants to utilize other resources available to them—such as English teachers or school administrators—to provide such translations.
Testing for International Students:-
The SAT or the ACT Plus Writing is required for all undergraduate applicants. Applications without SAT or ACT Plus Writing scores will not be considered for admission. If no sittings of these tests are offered in your country, you may request a testing waiver. The request must be submitted by a school official in writing by mail or faxed to (+1) 650-723-6050. Include your official name, birth date, current school and Common Application ID number at the top of the letter. No form is required. Requests will be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis.
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), although not required, is strongly recommended for non-native speakers of English.
You may submit your IELTS scores but note that Stanford does not recognize the IELTS as a measure of English proficiency.
