For New Spartans

Celebrating Students at SJSU

Welcome Fall 2020 New Students!

Congratulations on deciding to attend the Charles W Davidson College of Engineering at San Jose State this fall! We are excited to welcome you to our Spartan Family, and we are looking forward to summer orientations and beyond. We’ll be sending you more specific pre-orientation messaging closer to your orientation date. In the meantime, here are some opportunities and summer events exclusive to SJSU College of Engineering students that you might look forward to. If you redeemed your welcome gift, look for it in the mail in August!


Details about registration and orientation will help you prepare for your first semester at SJSU.
