For frosh admission, add the following:
800 points x A-G Coursework GPA
200 points if in Local Admission Area (will graduate high school in Santa Clara County)
40 points if Eligible for Cal State Apply application fee waiver
40 points if Military (Active Duty, Veteran, National Guard or Reserves)
40 points if First Generation (Applicant is first of their generation to earn a four-year college degree)
For applicants to engineering majors, add the following:
400 points x Math GPA
The point totals will be used to rank applicants for frosh admission to each major.
Note: minimum GPA for frosh admission is 2.50 for California residents, 3.00 for non-California residents.
Transfer applicants will be ranked by college GPA; some majors may also consider prerequisite completion. This is similar to previous years. Since fall 2019, SJSU added 0.25 to the college GPA for applicants who completed a majority of credit at community colleges in Santa Clara or Santa Cruz County (local admission area preference).
