International Applicant Deadlines - Spring

Spring 2019 International 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!

International Application 

  • F1 Visa (applying from home country)
  • F1 Visa (already in U.S. on F1 visa) 
  • J1 Visa seeking
  • B Visa holders

*U.S. citizens, permanent residents, refugees, H4, H1, and F2 visa holders must use the Domestic Steps to Admission link to apply.

IMPORTANT: In order to successfully apply for an international student visa, you will need to correctly designate yourself as an international applicant planning to study on an F-1 or J-1 visa at the beginning of your Cal State Apply application during the “Complete Your Profile” section.

If you do not follow the steps to designate yourself as an international applicant, your application may get withdrawn. If you mistakenly apply as a domestic applicant and intend to study on an international student visa for a program that is NOT being offered to international students, your application will be withdrawn.

Choose “Non Resident” as your U.S. Citizenship Status in your profile. If you have already started your application and need to change your U.S. Citizenship status, simply go to your extended profile within your Cal State Apply application and it will take you directly to this page again. This step is needful and should be done before you select a graduate program.

Special Note:

-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.

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. Be sure to 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 typical 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 and instructions on how to apply.
