Mandatory Intent to Enroll

Starting Fall 2022, some graduate programs implemented a mandatory intent to enroll process. This process will assist graduate programs in knowing who intends to enroll in their program prior to registration for enrollment planning. 

This means that if you are admitted to one of programs below and you have received your official admission message in your MySJSU account from Graduate Admissions, you will be required to: 

(1) let us know you plan to attend SJSU, by accepting your offer of admission and stating ‘yes’ you plan to attend SJSU and 
(2) pay the mandatory, nonrefundable and nontransferable, $200 enrollment deposit by your program's May or June 1, 2023 deadline (see below for specific deadline) to be eligible to attend SJSU for Fall 2023. 

Your paid enrollment deposit will be applied to your admitted term tuition and fees.
