MS Quantum Technology Admission
Applying to the Program
The application process includes two steps.
The first step requires you to submit an online University application using the Cal State Apply portal (https://www.calstate.edu/apply). The second step requires submission of an application to the MS Quantum Technology (MSQT) program via email to email@example.com.
The final deadline for submitting all application materials is May 1, 2023 for international applicants and July 1, 2023 for domestic applicants. Application decisions will be made no later than August 1, 2023.
Step 1: The University Application
You will need to apply to the University to obtain approval for program admission. Minimum requirements for admission to San José State University are outlined in the Graduate Admissions “Want to Apply” pages. The application to the University is submitted electronically through CAL State Apply. The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is NOT required for admission to the University (through CAL State Apply) or to the MS Quantum Technology Program.
Please note: The University graduate application is separate from the application you send to the program. Timelines for the University Application can be found at the Graduate Admissions website. (Please note that only Graduate Admissions can receive official transcripts, the MSQT program is not able to forward official transcripts to the Graduate Admissions office.)
Step 2: The Program Application
You will also need to apply to the M.S. Quantum Technology program to obtain admission and approval to enroll in courses.
To apply to the program, please provide the following materials by email to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- A resume or curriculum vitae
- A 1-2 page statement of purpose that addresses (1) how your previous coursework, research, or employment prepares you for our program; and (2) how our program fits into your career interests and goals
- One signed letter of recommendation from an academic or employment reference*
For full consideration, domestic applicants must submit all of the above materials before July 1, 2023. International applicants must submit all of the application materials by May 1, 2023. All materials must be emailed to the MS Quantum Technology program mailbox: email@example.com. Applicants are welcome to ask questions about the required application materials by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
