SJSU: Discover What it Means to Be Transformative

At San José State, transformation is defined by our community. Our students’ trajectory is upward, regardless of where they start. They have the opportunity to graduate with increased future earnings and less than half the average student debt of their California counterparts. And they go on to work in some of the world’s most influential companies. As alumni of SJSU, they join our faculty and staff in positively impacting Silicon Valley, the Bay Area and beyond. We are SJSU — transformation defined.
