Spartan Promise

The Spartan East Side Promise provides a pathway to guaranteed general admission to San Jose State University (SJSU) by clearly specifying admission requirements and actively sharing this information with students and families at the East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD).
By identifying the specific criteria for guaranteed SJSU general admission as part of the Spartan East Side Promise, ESUHSD students will know what is expected early in their academic careers.
Students entering as a freshman in high school is guaranteed the same criteria when the student applies in their senior year.
