Conditional Admission to the MSCS Program
If you do not fulfill all requirements for admission, and there is sufficient space in the program, we may offer you conditional admission for in-state applicants. If you are conditionally admitted, you will be expected to complete course work and/or pass tests, as directed by the graduate coordinator.
There is no special procedure for conditional admission. Simply submit an application.
If You Are Not Admitted
If we cannot offer you full or conditional admission, you may still take courses through the Open University program at San Jose State. Open University is a program which allows students who have not been formally admitted to the University to take regular curriculum classes on a space-available basis.
All applicants are required to take the GRE unless they are a resident in the state of California. For the GRE test, there are no hard cut-offs. We use the scores to compare and rank candidates.
