Fall 2014: "High Demand Courses Online" Program 

Spartans Online offers courses through a program called “High Demand Courses Online”. The goal of this program is to provide courses SJSU students need to progress in their educational goals (e.g., to graduate, to apply for their major, to attain mastery in a specific domain required for degree progression, etc.). These classes began in late September.
