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 and the MSW) are only available through the domestic application because student visas are not needed to study online.

Please note: As 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, the academic program. Be sure to check the website of the academic program for program-specific admission requirements in addition to SJSU admission requirements.

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 include an official WES evaluation (if education outside of the US or Canada) or official US/Canadian transcripts, English Language Proficiency exam (unless earned a degree from the US), Declaration of Finance form, Bank Statement, Current Passport, and Visa (if in US). See International Steps to Admission for full details.
