Former Student

Former students who have not attended SJSU as a regular student for the past two consecutive semesters, and who have not been granted a leave of absence, must reapply for admission as an international transfer applicant, complete the supplemental application, attend orientation, and meet all deadlines, conditions, and admission requirements currently in effect. Open University attendance does not qualify as regular enrollment.
