Transfer Impaction Results by Major - Fall 2012

All majors at SJSU are impacted for transfers, meaning that all applicants competed for space in the major, based on the applicant's cumulative GPA for all transferable courses completed at the time of application.

For Fall 2012, SJSU ranked all transfer applicants by major based on self-reported grade point average (GPA) and offered admission to sufficient numbers of students to meet the individual major's capacity.

For those who did not meet the individual major's GPA threshold, but who met the CSU eligibility criteria, SJSU offered admission to the "Undeclared" major to all local applicants who earned the majority of their transferable units at the time of application from a Santa Clara county or Santa Cruz county college.

For those applicants with the majority of transferable units earned at a college outside of Santa Clara or Santa Cruz Counties and who did not meet the major threshold, the Fall 2012 application was withdrawn as unaccommodated. Applicants in this category met minimum CSU eligibility requirements but did not meet the individual major's GPA threshold.

For SJSU impacted state-wide majors that have limited or no availability elsewhere in the CSU, SJSU may admit applicants at or above the CSU Minimum (these majors are indicated with an asterisk).

To be considered for transfer admission, non-residents of California earned a minimum 2.4 GPA and met CSU course and unit minimum requirements.
