Domestic Applicant Deadlines - Spring

Spring 2019 Domestic Admission Deadlines

Applications for Spring 2019 admissions open on August 1, 2018

Enrollment limits may restrict our ability to accept qualified applicants. To ensure consideration of your application, be sure to apply and submit documents as early as possible.

To apply, go to Cal State Apply and choose San Jose State!

Domestic Application

  • US Citizen 
  • Permanent Resident/Greencard holder
  • Refugee/Asylees
  • DACA
  • AB540
  • Visa Status (H4, H1B, L1, L2, F2, J2, TN, TD)

Special Notes:

-Documents submitted for application processing/review cannot be returned.

-Programs are subject to close at any time.

-Application and document deadlines are subject to change without notice.

-Online-only programs (such as MLIS) are only available through the domestic application because student visas are not needed to study online.

 

Please note: The application process is a two-step process.  Your application will be reviewed by SJSU’s Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations (GAPE) office and, if you meet SJSU admission requirements, you will then be reviewed by the academic program. Check the website of the academic program for program-specific admission requirements in addition to SJSU admission requirements.  Our Degree Program Requirements page has more information about your intended program, including what you would need to submit for their separate department application.

*The application deadline is the deadline to submit the Cal State Apply application.

**The document deadline is the deadline to submit all required documents to Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations.  While document requirements vary, documents typically include official transcripts and/or a WES evaluation (if education is outside of the U.S. and Canada), residency & or visa documents (if applicable), and English Language Proficiency exam (if required). See Domestic Steps to Admission for full details and instructions on how to apply.
