MS Taxation - Current Students

Current MST Student

The links on this page provide information you will need as you plan your schedule of study and get ready for upcoming classes. The Schedule of Classes also notes the required reading materials for each class and the assignment for the first class session. Be sure to acquire your course materials (particularly textbooks, which can be purchased at the Spartan Bookstore on the main campus) well before the first class session.

If you are not yet enrolled in the MST program, but have completed your undergraduate degree, you may take up to nine units using SJSU's Open University system. Under this system, you attend the first night of class and if there is room, the instructor will admit you to the class. You then pay your fees and take the class for a grade. Some students find this approach beneficial if they want to get a better sense of the time commitment or want to start taking classes while their application to the program is being evaluated.

Effective in Summer 2014, MS Taxation courses cost $645 per unit ($1,935 per 3-unit course).

If you have any questions about the program or sequencing of your courses, please contact MST Program Director Annette Nellen.

If you have questions regarding the 150-unit requirement for your CPA, please refer to the California Board of Accountancy website.  We are unable to assist you with the determination of units, so if you have questions, please refer to them:
