Open Classes How to Apply


How to Apply — Open Classes

Thank you for your interest in taking a master’s-level course through the fully online Open Classes program at the SJSU School of Information! Enrollment is open three times a year: fall, spring and summer

The Open Classes program is offered via Special Session. We do not offer Open University classes via our Regular Session program. Elective courses are offered on a space available basis, and course selection will vary each session. MLIS core courses are not available through the Open Classes program. MLIS core course prerequisites are not required in order to take an Open Classes elective.

Important Dates for Spring 2019

  • The sign-up form will be open December 3 at 8 a.m. Pacific, and close January 4 at 5 p.m. Pacific. Submissions are processed in the order they are received. For best selection, complete the form as soon as the form opens and reply to us in a timely manner, as courses fill quickly. The community is only able to access the Open Classes through our official Open Classes web request process (and not SJSU’s Open University program). 
  • Spring session dates will be January 24 – May 13, 2019. See: Spring Schedule of Classes. Please check back on the Schedule of Classes Notes column for the start and end dates of the variable unit classes, as they are have different start and end dates through the semester. Most classes are asynchronous, take a look for any classes with Mandatory Zoom class meetings. They will be indicated on the schedule.
  • A list of Summer 2019 class offerings is available. Sign-ups will begin in late April.
