Academic Calendar

Academic Calendar gives access to current and past Academic calendars. 


SJSU Articulation agreements are formal agreements between a transfer campus and SJSU. They define how courses completed at a transfer school can be used to satisfy a requirement at SJSU.


San Jose State University uses a learning management system (LMS) called Canvas by Instructure. Canvas has a clean, intuitive user interface, featuring drag and drop usability; and a comprehensive grading tool. Canvas also allows faculty and students to configure their notification options to integrate with services such as Facebook, Twitter, text messaging and more.

Fall 20 Admit Free Class

This free course was developed for our incoming class of Fall 2020 because we understand that current circumstances might require more flexible options to complete a full 30 units over the course of the first year. 

The free course option may be used during any Winter, starting Winter 2021, or Summer session within the next two years (for transfer students) or four years (for freshmen). (This option is not available for Former Students Returning.)
