I had previously applied for another SJSU program. How can I complete my application for MSDA?

You can only apply for one major at a time with Cal State Apply. You will have to send an email to admissions@sjsu.edu to submit your request to transfer your application documents to MSDA.  However, you can’t change the program now if you have been admitted by another SJSU program.

When can I submit my application to the MSDA program?

The Master of Science in Data Analytics program has consulted with the university regarding your plan to apply late for the program for Fall 2018.  The prospective students are being granted this exception to apply. Please follow the instructions below. The Cal State Apply application will close on June 1, 2018, so make sure you submit your application ASAP. After June 1, applications will no longer be accepted for this program. The document deadline to submit required materials to the GAPE office (e.g. if applicable – WES evaluations, test scores, copies of visa, residency info, transcripts, etc.) for this program is June 20, 2018.

  • Apply online through Cal State Apply for FALL 2018 by visiting clicking https://calstate.liaisoncas.com/applicant-ux/#/login
