Undergraduate Education (UE) is involved with all aspects of undergraduate academic matters which support retention and graduation of students. It includes the following areas and programs: Academic Preparation Programs, Academic Scheduling, Accreditation, Articulation, Assessment, Campus Reading Program, Center for Community Learning and Leadership, CommUniverCity, General Education, Program Planning, Catalog, Curriculum, MyProgress, and MyPlanner.

The courses offered by UE under the subject University Studies (UNVS) promote leadership, integrated and applied interdisciplinary academic experiences for students. The office also sponsors undergraduate degrees as a Special Major, which is an individually designed course of study leading to a BA or BS degree. The Special Major is designed for situations in which an existing university-level SJSU undergraduate degree major does not adequately accommodate academic professional aims. Students who complete a Special Major shall be able to demonstrate the characteristics of “intentional learners” who can adapt to new environments, integrate knowledge from different sources, and continue learning throughout their life.
