Applications for Fall 2013 are closed. We will accept applications for Spring 2014 for both regular and special session starting in August 2013.
Regular session is state-supported and state-subsidized and is for students who live within the catchment area of San José (zip codes: 936xx - 96xxx). The cap on the number accepted is related to the amount of money received from the State. Information on regular session fees.
Special session is totally funded from student fees and is for students who live outside the catchment area of San José (i.e., Southern California and the rest of the United States and the world.). Information on special session fees.
Both regular session and special session classes have the same instructors, the same assignments, the same content, the same timelines, and are delivered totally online. SLIS no longer offers any face-to-face classes.
