Welcome! Congratulations on wanting to attend San José State University's Department of Design.

The San José State University admissions website is your best resource for application, scheduling, scholarships and financial aide information, while here we've collected some key links to locations for further information specific to our school. Also, this is the location for discovering links to design-related internships, and descriptions of jobs available after graduating. 

SJSU is impacted for undergraduate applicants and will close at the end of the application period. Late applications will not be accepted.

Please Note: The Graphic Design, Industrial Design, and Interior Design Program admit every student as a BA Design Studies Major. Admission to the BFA Graphic Design, BFA Interior Design, and BS Industrial Design is by portfolio review only—after the completion of two to three semesters of coursework at SJSU.

Admission to the BFA in Animation and Illustration is determined at the time students apply for admission to the university. There is no internal transfer into the BFA in Animation and Illustration.
