Admissions Requirements

In addition to the college-wide minimum honors admission requirements (GPA, coursework), each department has its own requirements. Prior to enrollment in the SGIL honors program, applicants are expected to:

  1. have completed at least nine units of upper division courses in the College of Business; and
  2. provide a reference from at least one LCOB faculty member, to be collected during the application process.

Application Essay Topic

The application form will ask you to submit an essay of not more than 500 words on a topic requested by each department. The SGIL essay topic is: “Discuss the best and worst grades you have earned in business courses you have taken at SJSU and explain why.”

Completion of Prerequisites

The admission of students who would not meet admission requirements until the end of the semester may be deferred until final semester grades become available. While students are expected to follow the recommended sequence of upper division courses in their concentration, exceptional students may be admitted contingent on concurrent enrollment in a prerequisite course.
