SJSU Virtual Open House

The SJSU Virtual Open House has ended but we have new workshops coming in May! In addition, many of the Virtual Open House webinars were recorded and are now accessible. Recordings continue to be added daily, so check back here for updates. SJSU will offer new Zoom webinars for you starting the second week of May. During May’s webinars, you will be able to ask current SJSU students questions and get updates from Provost Vincent J. Del Casino, Jr. We will focus on budgeting, transitioning from high school or community college to SJSU, and online academic success, among many other topics. We will continue to post our May workshop offerings on this site as the schedules are finalized. You can find them under May Events. We understand that you may still have questions and we are here to address them each step of the way. We can’t wait to answer your questions and share in your excitement about being #SJSUbound!

Technical Requirements Needed to Participate

We will be using YouTube, Vimeo, and Zoom. You will need an internet connection and a device that has working audio. Please download Zoom software prior to the event. Our IT staff will also be available via live chat (see chat icon below).
