The College of International and Extended Studies (CIES) provides access to San José State University courses, degrees and certificates for students in Silicon Valley and from around the world. Unlike many extension and continuing education programs, CIES offers college credit for its courses.

Our programs and courses are available to enrolled students as SJSU as well as to adult learners and professionals seeking to expand their learning and advance in their professional careers. We offer courses at times convenient to working adults and to enrolled students seeking to add to or catch up on courses for graduation, whether those courses are online (Spartans Online) or on campus (Open University) or through specially scheduled shortened course offerings (Special Sessions).

At the same time the CIES offers courses and resources to students on campus and in Silicon Valley, we also reach out to students across the globe to connect them to opportunities at SJSU and create career pathways to Silicon Valley companies and the expertise to excel in industries in the their home countries.  We provide programs to help foreign students with English skills (Gateways) with adjustment to life on our campus (International Programs and Services) and much more.

As part of our SJSU’s devotion to being a global campus, we host the Salzburg program in Austria each year and provide academic connections through our Silicon Valley Center for Global Studies.
