Question from Katu
I have applied for Spring 2013 for MS in EE in SJSU.
Due to budget cuts they are not accepting California residents application for the same.
They have mentioned in their website that they will be accepting applications from international students only with F1 or J1 VISA.
No where does it mention that it wont be accepting from international students without one.
But recently i heard from someone that SJSU is not accepting international applicants for MS in CS.. So does it hold good for MS in EE too? Can u please shed some light on it ?
SJSU Not Accepting California Residents
From SJSU Site
NEW for Spring 2013: Due to the California budget restrictions, SJSU expects to meet our enrollment capacity prior to the Spring 2013 application term. Consequently, SJSU will not be accepting any applications for admission from California residents for state funded programs for Spring 2013.
Graduate international applicants with an F-1 or J-1 visa type can submit an application for Spring 2013 using the international application.
U.S. residents who are not California residents can submit an application from August 1 through September 30, 2012.
We will begin accepting applications on August 1, 2012 from individuals interested in the Special Session graduate programs.
Refer to the Admissions Deadlines on this site to determine the availability of each of the Special Session programs. See program descriptions, including contact information, at: http://special.sjsu.edu/programs.html
In-State residents pay In-State fees.
In-State tuition fees are less compared to Out of State Fees.
Due to budget cuts, schools are looking for students who would pay more in tuition fees.
International students pay out of state fees.
This puts international students in tough situation.
Can international graduate students attending SJSU get RA, TA or other scholarships, which could get them in-state fees.
If international students can’t get RA/TA, they are not getting in-state fees.
I would think twice before applying to San Jose State University.
Education is Business
Following is an extract from Higher Education in Australia, Europe and UK
Do Understand that Education is a business at the end where people doing the business have to make sure that they are getting right profit.
The education policies in a country is devised looking into the factor that a candidate X will invest some money in the country and when he or she is well equipped with right kind of education and skills, he will fill up labor demand supply gap in the country.
It is a win-win situation for a country unless it works exactly how they want.
