SJSU Parents and Families

Prospective Parents and Family Members

We are so happy to hear your student was extended an offer of admission to San Jose State University. I think your student will achieve great things at SJSU. You must be so proud! The next step for your student is to accept our offer of admission. Your student should have already received an email with all the information on how to do this. We also encourage you to have a conversation with your student about why SJSU offers the very best college experience. We are student-focused both inside and outside the classroom, which can be seen in our top-tier academics and exciting campus life opportunities. There are hundreds of options for your student to get involved and grow. We hope to meet your student at virtual orientation this summer. 

Families Matter at San José State!

Welcome to the Spartan Family! We are happy to have you as part of the San José State community and want to help you feel more connected to campus and understand your vital role in supporting your student.

Studies show that students with a great support system perform better in college and are more likely to earn a degree.  At SJSU, "family" can be defined as individuals and group members who support their student's success. Family members include parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, extended relations, and close friends. We want you to be the best support for your student and are building a program to provide information, resources, and ways for you to connect with SJSU.
