Add-drop deadlines strictly enforced in JMC
Each semester SJSU sets and reports, well in advance of each semester, the LAST DAY TO ADD, and LAST DAY TO DROP classes. No matter what other departments on campus do, it has long been JMC School policy to strictly enforce deadlines. Students studying advertising, journalism and public relations are taught to identify and meet all deadlines as an essential learning experience for working in their professions. JMC School students should never assume submitting a late petition will be approved. Ask the faculty or School Director Bob Rucker in advance of deadlines if you have questions.
