Fall 2015 Impaction Results by Major

All majors at SJSU are impacted for transfers, meaning that all applicants compete for space in the major, based on the applicant's cumulative GPA for all transferable courses completed at the time of application.

For Fall 2015, SJSU ranked all transfer applicants by major based on self-reported grade point average (GPA) and offered admission to sufficient numbers of students to meet the individual major's capacity.

For those who did not meet the individual major's impaction threshold, but who met the CSU eligibility criteria, SJSU offered admission to the "Undeclared" major in sufficient numbers to meet the University capacity. Preference was given to local applicants who earned the majority of their transferable units at the time of application from a Santa Clara county or Santa Cruz county college.

For CSU eligible applicants who did not meet the impaction thresholds below, the applicant's Fall 2015 application was withdrawn as unaccommodated. Applicants in this category met minimum CSU eligibility requirements but did not meet the individual major's GPA threshold.
