SJSU MLIS Open House - Shared screen with speaker view
Thank you, Sheila.
Just emailed you, Sheila
Is the GPA only undergraduate or do you also consider previous graduate work foro GPA consideration?
Can you explain that open class program again please?
Or just clarify in the chat
Open classes requests will start Dec. 2
Isthat for summer as well?
it's for physical class at SJ?
From Me to Jennifer Ryba: (Privately) (05:48 PM) Does that mean you don’t pay? Get to try it out first? Not clear to me. Sorry.
Melissa, you pay for the classes but can tqke them without being enrolled in the MLIS program
Any prerequisites for open classes?
I believe open class just means you can try it out without getting official admission/being admitted
We will cover questions in the Q and A at the end of the presentation
I have been accepted for Spring. Will there be time to take open classes before then? If so, what do you recommend we begin with?
How many classes to working teachers usually take per semester, or quarter?
Taylor & Maria
How many students are currently enrolled in the program?
I think she said 1900.
There is a Q and A section and the end. All of the questions will be answered by then.
I will be starting in Spring 2020 as well. Here is a What's App group I made if anyone want to keep in touch. https://chat.whatsapp.com/DoH35M1PZxkKpjw2ZUWWiD
Hi, Can a student from special session move to regular session (if they move near SJ area)?
Fahim A. Khan
Hello hope all is well! Might start in Spring 2020
Do you have any resources on campus to help people get jobs?
Hello! I applied for Fall 2020, not realizing that Spring 2020 was still an option. Am I able to change that to a Spring 2020 application, and if so, how do I do that?
For the questions that require books ..are they optional/or must purchase ourselves OR e-books provided?
how much was that open class. didn’t hear
I have a quick question, could I go on mic?
Is the preparation class required?
Which pathway is the most in demand for getting a job?
do we have access to the school’s library via online books?
The scholarships you mentioned, when would we know about them? Also what goes into consideration for them?
When is the window for Summer open classes?
will graduate work be considered? in terms of gpa on admissions
Can I choose special session even if I live in the bay area? Also, are there good scholarship options?
When do Spring classes start?
Would you say this program is good for disabled students?
how much is the application fee?
If I live in the the zip codes, can I still apply for special session?
Do we need to apply and get accepted in the program first before applying for financial aid/FAFSA? Thank you.
I am working as a TL for LAUSD on an emergency credential. Next Fall I will have 3 years to complete my credential. Is it doable?
Application fee for Spring is $55
Can you apply to start summer session?
Is there an online counselor available for this program?
Can apply to start in the summer?
Can you tell me more about the research assistant opportunities?
How many units are most classes?
what about fall
when you said there’s a 3.0 requirement for the last 60 semester units what does that mean?
I saw literacy specialist as a career path. Are there specific classes in that area?
You said that 86% of alumni use library skill. How long does it take for your graduates to get a job?
Can I reach out to any teacher for assistance in choosing classes with my career path interests? How do you recommend students seek advising?
I don't complete my bachelors until june 28th should I apply now
If I completed my bachelor's degree at SJSU, do I need to submit official transcripts? I graduated in 2015.
Is the preparation class required?
Are open classes applicable to the degree?
You said with the 3.0 and over GPA it's a most likely acceptance, so what kept the school from offering acceptance?
Is info 203 ever available for open classes?
What was the amount of semesters for the 3.0 average?
Is there guidance for students who do not know what their specialization should be?
Is the preparation class required?
I got a different MA 7 years ago, but also earned a community college certificate almost 2 years ago (library tech certificate). Would either transcript work for the application? Thank you.
How do you do exams if it is not synchronous?
Is there an opportunity for students who live within driving distance ever able to meet with professors, or are the professors all long distance as well?
and when does it start for students starting on January?
How many internships would you recommend doing?
Do students intern throughout the entirety of the program or during a semester or two? What is recommended for students who do not have library experience (I have worked as a research assistant for an online archival project)?
How many hours is considered full time for financial aid?
Also, is the online career advisor just for people who have completed the program, or can we access services while we are students to "land" a job in the field?
Do I need to send official transcripts to SJSU if I got my bachelor's degree at SJSU?
When do we know when credits are transferred from another MLIS and non-MLIS program?
I have a MEd. Would I still just use my undergrad transcripts?
Hi Everyone I was bumped off the webinar momentarily so please private chat me again if you needed help, as the previous chats to me are lost
when can we apply for scholarships for fall 2020
I read that virtual internships are possible within the program. Can you provide any insight to how that works? Might be the best option for me with my overseas military status.
Are the exams timed?
I missed a majority of this session due to work, will we be able to see this recording or no?
Did i hear correctly that the GRE is not required for the program
In the summer term, how many courses (3 unites each) is the max anyone usually can do (while not working/no other responsibility)
So if we live closer to SJSU, we have access to fewer classes?
In what stage of the application would we know if MLIS and non-MLIS master credits will transfer?
what is the gpa you need to maintain to stay in the program?
I missed part of the session due to work. Is this recording available to listen to again?
Does the program offer courses for students who want to get ahead in the program, winter session and summer session?
Are you able to gain certification in more specific fields of library science (ie: youth services)?
are any of your professors sjsu graduates?
TY for the helpful information.
Sorry, did you give the dates for the summer session - when it begins and ends...
Alisa Foreman Flowers
Havilah, do you work full time? How is it being a full time student and working full time, if you do.
I may have missed the answer to this. I have a BA but I have 30 credit hours worth of work after the BA with stronger more recent grades. In calculating gpas will just those stronger 30 credit hours be looked at or will 30 credit hours from the BA be used as part of your past 60 semester hour calculation?
can you explain a little between the Teacher Librarian and other credential…
Sheila! If I am already enrolled on another MLIS program and are transferring to SJSU, will I need to re-submit my FAFSA to get financial aid for SJSU?
can online students get health insurance?
Havilah, how did you get a full time job without MLIS?
I'm in a library management position, with over 20 years in special libraries. Am concerned that some classes address skills I already possess. Can you speak to that / are there other students in my position?
Hi Allison- I’m part time at San Diego Law Library and part time at the iSchool. I was offered the Reference Librarian position while getting my MLIS- I hope this makes sense!
Yes, thank you Havilah
The document deadline for spring is Dec. 20. Do I need to send official transcripts to SJSU if I graduated with a bachelor's from SJSU?
if we are not too fluent with doing academic researches and such..will there be any kind of training in any of the courses to get up to speed?
Are there distance librarians? that send items to distance students?
Thanks for creating the document with the links and answers for all of our question!
Thank you for this very informative talk!
Do most courses include final exams?
Thank you so much for the session and taking the time to answer the questions not covered in the chat itself due to time constraints. Great information provided throughout
Can you apply to be an RA if your not in state?
How does graduation work for an online degree? Can we attend an on campus ceremony?
Thank you! That is fantastic!
This has been great. Thanks so much for your time. It sounds very exciting and I am impressed with how organized you are - and your ability to end on time!
Thank you so much!
For a catalog librarian, can I take specific courses on cataloging? Can my degree show concentration or emphasis on cataloging?
Thank you so much for your time!
Thank you so much!!
Thank you! Super informative
Thank you! Very helpful!
Taylor & Maria

Thank you so much Debbie, Linda, Sheila and Havila for you time!
Is there a way to link a MLIS with a MIS degree?
