2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Although I am an optimistic person, San Jose State University can be a bit a demon to face when it comes to anything regarding the human resources department. When I came to the campus for Admitted Spartan Day I had to go to the student services office to change my legal name for my student profile name in the school's database. It took me over a month for me to finally end the dilemma with my name successfully changed in accordance to my preferred name and have it entered in their database. For financial aid assistance, I would recommend that you be as direct and firm with the people at the main office desk as you possibly can. If you don't, the main office will direct you into a wild goose chase about the bureaucracy in hopes that you will find whatever it is that you are looking for. To get financial aid at this school, again, be direct with the main directory and ask them to redirect you to your counselor for assistance or to a financial aid advisor that has expertise in the field of helping students regarding the cost of attending the university.

Scholarships: It can take up to several weeks for any documentation to be processed so make sure to constantly check you MYSJSU for e-mails regarding required documents. I unfortunately had the situation where someone lost a document I turned in so you may have to e-mail or call in the financial office to ensure your documentts are being processed if you do not see any update on your MYSJU.

Scholarships: My school is pretty good with financial aid. I received enough to cover tuition, books and can still had extra left over. My advice is to keep your GPA above a 2.0 to keep receiving financial aid because I lost mine and the struggle is real.
