Applying to MSA - Lucas Graduate School of Business

While the Lucas School makes the final admissions decision, the overall admissions process for all SJSU graduate programs is managed by Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations.

SJSU Application Procedure:

You must submit your application online via CSUMentor . A payment of USD$55.00 is required.
Payment Options: Personal check (drawn on a U.S. bank or an international bank with a U.S. branch), cashier's check, or credit/debit card via the CSU Mentor website.

Note: While the recommended payment method is a credit/debit card, if you are sending a personal check or a cashier's check, please make it payable to SJSU and send it directly to the following address:

San José State University
Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations
One Washington Square
San José, CA 95192-0017

Application Status:

You may check your status online on your MySJSU student account by using the user ID and password assigned to you by the GAPE office. Your user ID and password will be created one week after you submit your application. We encourage you to check your application status and “To Do” list for outstanding documents frequently to insure that your file is completed by the published document submission deadline date.

Degree Evaluation:

Your admission file is complete when all documents listed on your “To Do” list are received by the GAPE office. A University evaluator will verify that your undergraduate degree and grade point average meet the minimum California State University requirements. GAPE is unable to pre-evaluate an individual's eligibility for graduate admission; a full evaluation, including confirmation of the equivalency of a U.S. bachelor's degree, is performed only after an application and all the required, official documents have been submitted to GAPE. Your completed application is then referred to the Lucas School for the final review and an admissions decision.
