Spartan East Side Promise Program (SESP)
What is the Spartan East Side Promise?
The Spartan East Side Promise Program (SESP) is San Jose State University's dedicated support service for East Side Union High School District students from the time of college exploration through college graduation.
High School Students
We provide a variety of academic, personal, and professional development workshops and events that strive to foster a college-going culture by creating a pathway to admission to SJSU, and supporting ESUHSD students and their families in their transition from high school to college.
Incoming SJSU Students
Various support services are available for new SJSU students such as the ESUHSD Spartan Summer Program, Peer Mentor meetings, and our Growth Pledge project.
ESUHSD Spartan Summer Program
This hybrid summer program provides incoming ESUHSD Freshmen with academic guidance, connections to campus resources, and an opportunity to build their peer support network.
