Graduate Work in Special Session
Special session is often confused with Open University (see section below). Although both are administered by the College of Professional and Global Education (Formerly College of International & Extended Studies) special session programs and open university course offerings are different means for registering into graduate courses.
Special session classes are offered 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.
