Open University Options

There are alternative ways to enroll in classes prior to formal admission to the MPDM program. You can take a few classes through SJSU Open University without having to be fully admitted and while simultaneously submitting your application to the university when it is open for admissions. For individuals subsequently admitted to the program, credit can be transferred into the degree requirements if the student obtains a B or higher grade.

Enrollment in classes through Open University, however, does not guarantee entry into the program. You must still submit your application, transcripts, and documents to the Admissions Office to verify that all program requirements are met.
