Registration Information

If you are currently enrolled in the ESMBA program, please register as normal through MySJSU.

If you are not a currently enrolled SJSU student, please follow the instructions below:

You may not take graduate level classes through Open University at SJSU if you have previously been denied admission to an SJSU graduate program. To register for a Business Analytics class through Open University you must complete the following steps:

Pre-Enrollment Instructions*:

  1. View the upcoming schedule.

  2. Submit the pre-screening form as early as possible. The pre-screening form can be found here: Pre-Screening Form

  3. Your form will be evaluated and you will be notified of the results. If you are notified that you are eligible, please continue to Registration Instructions (below).

  4. You must submit appropriate documentation to verify that you have met the prerequisites of the program within three weeks of submitting your pre-screening form or you will be dropped from the program.

*If you have previously been approved to take classes in the Business Analytics program, you do not need to complete the Pre-Screening process more than once; however, you will still need to complete the registration process below for each class.

Registration Instructions (for those educated with the United States):

  1. Complete the registration form (must be submitted each term):  Registration Form  (If you are taking two classes during the term, you do not need to register for both at the same time.  As soon as you register, your fees will be due in 21 days.  If would like to register for the later class at a later time, that is fine.  Just submit the form again prior to the next class.)
    Please scan or take a picture of the form and email it to catherine.dougherty@sjsu.edu one week prior to the beginning of the class you wish to take. You will notice that this form repeats many of the questions you were asked during pre-screening. The reason for this is that this form will be processed by another office that requires a standardized form. We apologize for the repetitive work and appreciate your cooperation.

  2. Forms will be screened by the Lucas Graduate School of Business and forwarded to the Registrar's Office.

  3. You will be notified by email when you are officially registered in the course and given your SJSU ID number, as well as the due date for your fees.

  4. Pay your fees. Fees are $2,550 per three unit class. See form for payment methods.

  5. If you have any questions, please contact the Program Director.

Registration Instructions (for those educated outside of the United States):

Applicants who were educated outside of the United States must apply for the Business Analytics Certificate through www.csumentor.edu for official approval.  Your application to begin classes in the Fall Semester must be submitted by July 31 and your application to begin classes in the Spring Semester must be submitted by December 1.  After your application is approved you will receive instructions for registration.
