Fall 2020 Domestic Admission Deadlines

Applications for Fall 2020 admission open on October 1, 2019. Enrollment limits may restrict our ability to accept qualified applicants. To ensure consideration of your application, be sure to apply and submit documents as early as possible.

To apply, go to Cal State Apply and choose San Jose State!

Domestic Application

  • US Citizen 
  • Permanent Resident/Greencard holder
  • Refugee/Asylees
  • DACA
  • AB540
  • Visa Status (H4, H1B, L1, L2, F2, J2, TN, TD)

Special Notes:

-Documents submitted for application processing/review cannot be returned.

-Programs are subject to close at any time.

-Application and document deadlines are subject to change without notice.

-Online-only programs (such as MLIS and the MSW) are only available through the domestic application because student visas are not needed to study online.
