Applying for Award of the Master's Degree

Enrollment in a Master's program at SJSU does not mean that you will automatically be awarded a degree. You will need to initiate the process by completing the Application for Award of Master's Degree Form. (Available at the Graduate Studies Website). Please refer to the filing deadlines prior to submission. The deadline for submission of this document usually comes right at the beginning of the semester you plan to graduate, so try and file the form the semester before you expect to graduate. (See the Graduate Studies website for deadlines). Presently, there is no fee with this applicaton if you are a current student, but a $10 one if you are not—a reactivation fee. This form need only be signed by you. You must have candidacy approval from the Graduate Studies Office before this application will be accepted.
