SJSU MLIS Open House - Shared screen with speaker view
Hello we are 2 people and both are prospective students!
My admission to MLIS was denied because of low GPA 2.65, now I am taking classes to raise the GPA. My question is that Is there a way to know how many credit units I need to take in order to increase my GPA to 3?
HI Almania, I am a prospective student in the same situation and you you can simply go here to calculate it http://www.back2college.com/raisegpa.htm
It depends on how many units you have already
We will answer these questions in the Q and A section of tonight’s presentation
No problem, good luck!
Also, my community college classes will be finished by December 20th, Can I apply for the MLIS spring 2020, as the application deadline is Dec 1.
October 1st I believe
What if I don't get my transcript by the Document deadline Dec . 20, 2019?
How many classes are offered online in library science?
I’m currently interested in applying for a masters program in library science, I was wondering if there were options / possibilities to specialize in the film and creative arts or if there is any courses that focuses on these subjects
thanks so much.
Hello, I am trying to raise my GPA, I did not have access to Library related courses so I chose Child Development Courses. Would that be an issue?
Do you accept graduate-level transfer credits?
What does the thesis option entail?
what day of the week are classes due?
how many students are in each of the online classes eg. size of discussions?
How soon will you know if you've been accepted after applying?
typo* what day of the week are assignments due?
What I’m trying to understand is, do we have to apply to SJSU first and once accepted we apply for the Library Master’s program?
Do you have leads about financial aid, scholarships, work study?
Do you have electives in Music Librarianship?
Im also trying to raise my GPA and I was wondering what kinds of classes would be good to do so, either in general or for the program?
Do professors record their lectures for online classes in Panopto?
Just out of curiosity, what is the average age of an MLIS student?
Hello, I have just applied to the program. My GPA is currently 3.7, but I have no volunteer or work experience listed. Is it likely that I will be accepted, or if not, when can I reapply since I am currently working on procuring employment and volunteering.
when can we register for classes?
Is there electives in Health Librarianship?
Good to know there are options outside traditional libraries. Any idea what the Bureau of Labor Statistics or other DoL outfit forecasts for job growth requiring a MLIS?
Where can I find syllabi? On the registrar's website?
I appreciate your survey of the students that have been graduated a year prior. My main concern is with being successful with securing a job. As a parent, the pressure to do well is so much higher.
How do you address the fears of students aspiring to become librarians, but do not know the future of libraries due to the digital age?
When will the 'intent to enroll' open up for Spring of 2020?
Is a BFA in music acceptable?
Do undergrad classes be used to raise GPA for MLIS admission?

Can I substitute my grad school transcript for undergrad?
I was just hired as a part time library teacher, the district has applied for an emergency library teacher certificate for me and I will need to take at least 6 units to show I am starting the program. How many units are open session classes?
Can you go over the GPA. A 3.0 is required in the last 60 undergraduate classes or in your undergrad degree?
How many credits can a student take in a semester besides the recommended 12 units? I read somewhere that it could be done in 1-1yr and a half, is that impossible?
I am a disabled student with a GPA of 2.97What is the best way to get my disability on my application?Are there any special admissions considerations since I am eligible for SJSU but not for the MLIS program eeven though I am otherwise qualified.
Are there different tuition payment options for the special session?
I've taken some non degree grad class to bring up my GPA is that ok? Ive taken them during the past 10 years is that a problem?
Are advisors assigned, or do the students choose? If students choose, when do students usually do that? During the first semester, or before we start?
Will you provide the link for the application
I mistyped my first question. I would like to know: Per Semester, how many MLIS courses are offered online?
Is the Catchment Area of San Jose, for Regular Session, just the South Bay or is it the whole Bay Area? Im asking because I am in East Bay and I was wondering which I should apply for.
Is it possible to specialize in public and academic librarianship and finish within 3 years?
Do you have to declare the thesis option of ePortfolio at the time of application to the MLIS program?
How long would a full time student take to complete the whole program with a masters?
If we can take up to 9 credits from another institution, say specialize in a subject area like film, music, arts, etc., are there universities with similar costs afforded to us?
salary range of employed graduates?
If I don’t know exactly what field of librarianship I want to work in will there be some help for me to figure that out?
Thank you all!
