Emeritus Faculty

Tower Hall

In addition to the University Policy (F14-2 [pdf]) which provides details on emeritus status, this page provides information for SJSU faculty who are interested in emeritus faculty status. Emeritus status is not automatically conferred upon retirement.  Faculty need to apply.  When review of the application is completed, faculty receive a letter from the President with their decision.

Emeritus status enables faculty to retain their SJSU credentials (ID) which gives them access to their SJSU email account and all other faculty resources at SJSU—and free parking on campus. The information below is organized by categories which faculty typically fall into at the point they retire and want to apply for Emeritus Status.
