San Jose State University Graduate Reviews

So far, this school has been a million times better than the school I went to for my undergraduate degree! Even getting my education online, the school has provided me with so many resources and lectures that I can attend virtually. I never thought online school would be like this. I wish I had this much support, aid, and resources at my previous school.

Overall, I had a very good experience while in the process of earning my Bachelor's degree. I liked the dedication and strong teaching abilities of the professors who truly cared about their students, as there were many professors like this, some with whom I made friends after I graduated. On the other hand, San Jose State University's administration is very disorganized, and the customer service experience students receive is not top notch.
University declares current on demand courses with same old professors with not much knowledge about the new course titles. In MS-SE, there is a core course with one pathetic professor who likes to fail students. The students then go on probation and keep on paying extra money for tuition until they get out of probation.
