Fall 2020 Admits: Registration


Eligibility for a free intersession course will be pending your completion of the Fall 2020 term. Students should check their eligibility status with the Academic Advising and Retention Services (AARS) office at academic.advising@sjsu.edu before registration. The free intersession course can be taken during any winter or summer term in the next two years (for transfer students) or four years (for Freshmen), as long as you maintain continuing student status at San Jose State. Once you have taken a free intersession course you will not be eligible for a future free intersession course.

To enroll in your free course this Summer:

Step One: Review the list of available courses in the Summer 2021 catalog (TBA).  

Step Two: Identify your top three course choices.  

Step Three: All eligible students will receive an invitation email via MySJSU in March with instructions on how to request a free course. Students must complete and submit a Free Course: Summer 2021 form by March 26.

Seat availability is limited for each course, and will be assigned on a first request first served basis. Once you submit the form, there is nothing else you need to do for enrollment. AARS will handle enrollment for all free intersession courses. Enrollment in your top choice(s) is not guaranteed. Check your schedule in MySJSU on April 5 to verify enrollment in one of your requested courses. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please refer to the FAQ’s or contact the Academic Advising and Retention Services office at academic.advising@sjsu.edu

Please note: If (for any reason) AARS is not able to enroll a student in their top three choices,  students can still register for that class as a general student through MySJSU during the advance registration period. All tuition fees will apply in this case. 

Instruction for additional classes:

For any additional class students want to add, they may do so themselves through MySJSU. Registration for additional classes will be the same as regular students enrolling in Summer Session. Please refer to the registration webpage for general students.
