Admitted Fall 2018 and After
SJSU EXPECTATIONS FOR COMPLETION IN WRITTEN COMMUNICATION AND QUANTITATIVE REASONING COURSES
FALL 2018 AND LATER
San Jose State University expects all students entering as first-year frosh to complete their written communication (area A2) and quantitative reasoning (area B4) general education requirements through courses appropriate to their majors by the end of their second academic year, including the following summer. To this end, all frosh admitted in the fall who have not completed their A2 and/or B4 requirements through Advanced Placement exams, International Baccalaureate exams, or transfer coursework must enroll in the appropriate A2 and/or B4 courses during their first year. Students entering with an enrollment category W-IV and/or M-IV (Ready with Support and Early Start Required) must enroll in the appropriate A2 and/or B4 courses in their first semester.
Students admitted in the spring semester who choose a stretch sequence—either Stretch English or Statway, both of which start only in the fall semester—may extend their A2 and/or B4 enrollment date to their first fall semester.
Any student admitted Fall 2018 or later, who does not complete both general education areas A2 and B4 with a grade of C- or better by the end of the first academic year (including the following summer) will be placed on administrative academic probation and required to register for the appropriate coursework until both requirements are satisfied. Students who do not complete both general education areas A2 and B4 with a grade of C- or better by the end of the second academic year (including the following summer) will be subject to administrative academic disqualification and withdrawn from the university. (For frosh admitted in the spring semester, the requirement is extended by one semester to the end of the second full academic year of attendance.)
All Former Students Returning and upper division special admit transfers who have not completed both GE areas A2 and B4 will be required to enroll in appropriate coursework in their first semester of attendance, and will be placed on administrative academic probation if that coursework is not passed with a grade of C- or better by the end of their first term of enrollment. Students in these categories will be given one full academic year to complete both GE areas A2 and B4 with a C- or better or be subject to withdrawal from SJSU through administrative academic disqualification.
