Undergraduates, Apply Now Through Nov. 30 for Fall 2012

San Jose State University is accepting applications from undergraduate students beginning on Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, 2011.  International applicants should refer to for dates and deadlines.

IMPORTANT! To be considered for Fall 2012 admission, SJSU requires that applicants meet minimum CSU requirements. Details are posted at

The same impaction policies enforced in Fall 2011 will be applied for Fall 2012—qualified applicants will be ranked according to self-reported information provided on their CSUMentor application and admitted according to the capacity of the individual SJSU major. CSU eligible, local students who do not get admitted to their first-choice major will be admitted as undeclared. CSU eligible non-local students who do not get admitted to their first choice major will be admitted as undeclared up to the university capacity level.

San Jose State University is not accepting Fall 2012 applications from lower-division transfers, or those seeking a second bachelor’s degree.

PLEASE NOTE: Applications are term-specific which means that SJSU will not defer or roll forward applications or admission from term to term. To guarantee review for Fall 2012 admission, apply between October 1, 2011 and November 30, 2011 (a very simple process if you have already filled out an application for spring admission).

Graduate and Special Session Programs for Fall 2012:

SJSU will accept applications for most regular and special session (self-support) professional, graduate level programs offered in Fall 2012. Check the GAPE website for a listing of available programs and specific application and document deadlines for the Fall 2012 application cycle.

The first and best place for all applicants to stay informed is via their MySJSU account. To ensure that they remain eligible for consideration, applicants must monitor their MySJSU accounts at LEAST twice weekly and comply with all posted deadlines.
