Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations Staff

SJSU continues to monitor the conditions of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and well-being of students, faculty and staff are of utmost importance to us. Health advisories and safety measures are changing frequently at this time. The Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations (GAPE) Office building is closed, but we remain open to assist online. You may experience disruptions and delays in standard business functions. Please allow additional response time. We appreciate your understanding and patience.  


       Please contact us at or email your GAPE Evaluator directly. 



Prospective Students: Visit our Graduate Admissions website.

Current Students: Most answers to your general questions can be found under our Current Students section. For candidacy or graduation status, please check My SJSU. However, if you find that you still have questions, please feel free to email your evaluator with specific questions on candidacy or graduation. Please include your nine-digit student ID# for faster service and allow some turnaround time to get a response. Emails are generally replied within 48 hours. However, some questions may be forwarded for specialists to reply and may take longer to answer.

Please make sure you detail all inquiries in full and also remember to provide valid contact information for our staff to assist you. Before contacting us, please make every effort to find the information you are looking for through our website.
