Freshmen Impaction Results by Major - Fall 2015

All majors at SJSU are impacted for freshmen, meaning that all applicants competed for space in the major, based on the CSU eligibility index at the time of application.

For Fall 2015, SJSU ranked applicants based on the California State University Eligibility Index (EI) and offered admission to sufficient numbers of students to meet both individual major's capacity and overall university enrollment capacity.

This includes restricting admission to the undeclared major to meet limited university capacity.

Applicants who will graduate from a high school in Santa Clara County received preference in the admission process.

Non-residents of California, including international students, needed to earn an eligibility index of 3502 using the SAT exam or an eligibility index of 842 using the ACT exam. For majors requiring a higher eligibility index, non-residents must have met the higher standard.
