Application Procedures
IMPORTANT: The notice of admission from the School of Library and Information Science will only come via email. Make sure you set your spam filter to accept all correspondences from the .sjsu.edu domain.
 
Please be sure to complete all 3 steps.
 
  1. Complete the University's online graduate application. Note: Non-US citizens do not use the "International Admissions Application;" they use the special session "Graduate Admissions Application." Before completing the online CSU Graduate Application, read the following– and then apply on www.csumentor.edu/.

    • For assistance with the CSU Graduate Application, an online tutorial is available.
    • Apply to "San José State University Graduate."
    • The Major/Program objective is "Library & Information Science (either 'MLIS Special Session' or 'MLIS Regular Session')."
    • The degree objective is "Other Masters."
    • Non-US citizens: On the CSUmentor's "Personal Information" application page where it asks for "US state/territory", use the dropdown menu to click "Foreign country"; where it asks for "Citizenship status", use the dropdown menu to click "Other visa"; where it asks for "visa status", put in "U"; and where it asks for the "date issued", type in "01/01/2000".
    • A GRE, work experience, academic references, academic honors, and a statement of purpose are not necessary. In the boxes provided on the form, leave these boxes blank. For the "Statement of Purpose" box, only type in the words "not applicable".
    • When you click the "Submit" button, the application is electronically submitted to the SJSU Office of Graduate Admissions and Program Evaluation (GAPE). Be sure to print out the "Confirmation" web page for future reference.
  2. Pay the CSU Graduate Application fee of $55. We strongly encourage payment by credit or debit card. Credit card payments may be made when completing the CSU Mentor online application. If paying by check, mail the check to:
