First Year Math and Writing Course Placement
To facilitate appropriate first-year course placement, the CSU evaluates your academic
preparation in two areas: written communication and math/quantitative reasoning.
The evaluation takes into account multiple factors, including coursework, grades, and scores on standardized tests.
SJSU will not require SAT/ACT scores for Fall 2021 admission, and they will not be
considered in our admission consideration process. We highly recommend that you submit
your SAT and/or ACT scores, as this is one of several measures to assess math and
English placement for admitted students who enroll at SJSU.
Keep up to date with our calendar of events!
