Freshmen Impaction Results

Fall 2016 Impaction Results by Major

All majors at SJSU are impacted for freshmen, meaning that all applicants competed for space in the major, based on the applicant's CSU eligibility index at the time of application.

For Fall 2016, SJSU ranked applicants based on the California State University Eligibility Index (EI) and offered admission to sufficient numbers of students to meet both individual major's capacity and overall university enrollment capacity. This includes restricting admission to the undeclared major to meet limited university capacity.

For those who did not meet the individual major's impaction threshold, but who met the CSU eligibility criteria, SJSU offer admission to "Undeclared" in sufficient numbers to meet the University capacity. Preference was given to local applicants who will graduate from a high school in Santa Clara County.

For CSU eligible applicants who did not meet the impaction thresholds below, the applicant's Fall 2016 application was withdrawn as unaccommodated. Applicants in this category met minimum CSU eligibility requirements but did not meet the individual major's impaction threshold.

Non-residents of California, including international students, needed to earn an eligibility index of 3502 using the SAT exam or an eligibility index of 842 using the ACT exam. For majors requiring a higher eligibility index, non-residents must have met the higher standard.
