Welcome current SJSU and prospective students! In pursuit of our mission to increase access to education, We are excited to offer a program called “High Demand Courses ”. 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 "High Demand" courses could include:

  • courses that cannot sufficiently accommodate all students wanting or needing to take them in the regular term.
  • general education that cannot be offered or supported during the regular session for various reasons (e.g., scheduling conflicts, unavailability of resources, etc.).
  • courses students need to graduate in that term.

 Quick Information for Spring 2017
