How to Apply

International Students can apply to study abroad at San Jose State University if their home university has a bilateral exchange agreement with SJSU. If you are an international student from one of our SJSU academic partner universities (pdf), then you can complete the SJSU International Student Study Abroad Application (pdf) and submit it to your home university’s study abroad coordinator. SJSU does not accept applications directly from student applicants. If you have any questions about the application procedure, please feel free to contact the IPS Office directly.

If your university does not yet have a partnership with SJSU, please have your university contact Gail Lu at gail.lu@sjsu.edu in order to inquire about how to set up a partnership. Please have your university do this as soon as possible if you are interested in studying at SJSU as a visiting student. We will not be able to advise you about how to apply to SJSU as a visiting student until an academic partnership has been established between your university and SJSU.
