What is Open University?

Open University program allows students who haven’t been accepted at SJSU to enroll in university courses on a space-available basis. It’s a way for these students to attend San José State University to take individual courses to earn credits while waiting for admission. It’s also an opportunity for individuals to take college courses without enrolling in the university to grow professionally, enrich their lives, prepare for a career change, or give university life a try.


Who may attend Open University?

Former San José State University students, SJSU alumni, members of the general community and disqualified students from SJSU or elsewhere may take courses. Currently-enrolled, matriculated (admitted) SJSU students or those who have been admitted for the current term are not eligible to enroll through Open University.
