Parents and Families
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.
Stay connected with us throughout the school year by signing up for our SJSU Parent and Family Portal! The portal will provide you with newsletters, informative posts and allow you to
join communities to help you stay informed about what's happening at SJSU and more!
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.

Honoring an outstanding parent/family reminds the Spartan community that families are an essential part of the support network for our students. At SJSU, family members include parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, extended relations, and close friends. Students have a chance to honor family members who have helped them achieve their higher education goals by nominating them for the 2021 Parent and Family of the Year Award. Nominations are now being accepted through February 26, 2021. Submit your nominations HERE!
