This week, more than 28,000 high school and community college students across the country are ripping open envelopes arriving in the mail to find inside a “Certificate of Admission.”

It’s that time of year again, when San Jose State says yes to its incoming class of freshmen and transfers.

Follow the Enrollment Services’ Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts as these newly admitted students post pictures of themselves with their certificates to win the “Spartan Swag Photo Contest.”

Past participants have used their creativity to take photos with others in classrooms, while flying a plane and at a daycare center.

Good job, Elaina Mattingly! Elaina received a consolation prize in last year’s “Spartan Swag Photo Contest.”

The new admits hail from all over California plus 39 more states, Guam and Puerto Rico. The largest number of admitted out-of-state students are from Hawaii, Washington and Texas.

SJSU will continue to accept international applications through April 1. Admitted Spartan Day–one more chance to visit before the big decision–will be April 12.

The deadline to say yes to SJSU is May 1. Keep in mind these are provisional admissions. All candidates are subject to verification of California State University eligibility via final transcripts.

Everyone attends transfer orientation beginning in April or freshmen orientation beginning in June. If last fall is any indication, expect more than 3,600 new freshmen and 3,700 new transfers on the first day of classes August 25.

More than 90 percent will be Californians, with the remaining 10 percent coming here from other states and countries.

Of course, there is a long road ahead for these new Spartans but it’s worth it. Also in the mail this week? Diplomas to fall 2013 graduates.
