Up-Coming Events 


Welcome to the Student Outreach and Recruitment office!

We have a passion for assisting students in achieving their academic goals.  Our office provides SJSU information, admission presentations, and participates in local, regional and national college fairs.  Take a look at our schedule to see if we are going to be in a city near you.

Our Admission Counselors also assist students with understanding admission requirements and the admission process for frosh, upper division transfer and undergraduate international applicants.  If you are an undergraduate student who has not applied and are interested in meeting with an Admission Counselor, then you are in the right place! Visit our Meet with a Pre-Admission Counselor site to review our pre-admission drop-in counseling hours. 

 Spartan East Side Promise Established in 2016, the Spartan East Side Promise (SESP) began as a collaboration between San José State University and East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD) with the goal of offering guaranteed admission to qualified students who graduate high school from the District. Through a variety of interactive programming, the SESP provides a pathway to admission at SJSU by clearly specifying the admission requirements and sharing information about resources for academic success with students and families in the district. A flyer covering the admission requirements can be found here.  For any questions, please contact Admissions Counselor/Recruiter - Spartan East Side Promise Coordinator, Amanda Aldama at or by phone at (408) 924-2554.

 In order to experience all that SJSU has to offer, visit campus.  For more information or to sign up for a tour, go to our Visit SJSU page.
