A major part of attending graduate school, besides all the class assignments, is figuring out how to pay for it all. Working on an advanced degree is an investment worth making, whether to expand your options in your current job or to change careers entirely. While there is government student aid, private loans, maybe a savings accounts to tap into, and a myriad of scholarships available at SJSU SLIS, financing a master’s degree is still a concern for many who are planning to go back to school.

Recently SLIS received an important and prestigious award – the Sloan Consortium Effective Practice Award – which honors excellence in online education.
But what does this mean for you as a new student, or for that matter, any SLIS student (including me)?
It means we have chosen to attend a school that excels in online education. Although San Jose State University is a traditional university with thousands of students who attend classes on campus, SLIS delivers all of its programs totally online. There are no in-person classes. While some MLIS programs offer a mix of onsite and online courses, or offer both online and in-person tracks, SLIS focuses solely on online education. By choosing to be a completely online school SLIS can offer its students an education tailored specifically to their environment. Staff, faculty, classes, technology, everything is dedicated to you, the online student.
