International Applicants must supply complete 7th-semester transcripts, including all work in progress, by the final document deadline listed below for your application to be considered. Incomplete applications (i.e., missing documents) will NOT be considered.

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.

Please note: As the application process is a two-step process, your application will be reviewed by SJSU’s Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluations (GAPE) office and, if you meet SJSU admission requirements, the academic program. Be sure to check the website of the academic program for program-specific admission requirements in addition to SJSU admission requirements.

The application deadline is the deadline to submit the Cal State Apply application. For a step-by-step guide on how to complete the Cal State Apply application for SJSU, visit our Fall 2020 SJSU Graduate International Application Tutorial.
