Graduate Work in Special Session
Special session is often confused with Open University (see section below). Although both are administered by the College of International & Extended Studies, they are different programs.
Special session classes are offered on a selective basis off campus, via different delivery modes or by schedules different from the regular session term. Matriculation is required for special sessions courses. Credit earned in 100-level, 200-level, or 300-level special session courses at SJSU is entered on the matriculated graduate student's record as graduate credit, provided the student holds an acceptable baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution at the time of enrollment in the courses. Courses taken through special session receive residence credit. Simultaneous enrollment in special and regular sessions requires a special exemption from the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and is highly discouraged, as fees must paid for both sessions simultaneously.
For further information concerning special session and policies, inquire at College of International and Extended Studies, 210 North Fourth Street, Suite 301, call 408-924-2670, or www.sjsu.edu/cies.
