Academic Exellence

Faculty & Accreditation

SJSU has more than 2,000 professors and lecturers and almost 30,000 students. We are a very large school, but our average class size is small -- less than 28 students. Our colleges and departments are accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Various programs are accredited by specialized accrediting agencies. Additional information can be found on the university's WASC Accreditation site.                                   

English Language Development

If your son or daughter has not yet achieved the required English language proficiency score for admission to San Jose State University, our Academic and Test Preparation program at International Gateways can help them develop the language skills they need. We provide intensive English study for students who plan to attend an American college or university.
