Students in the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School, regardless of which campus they are registered at, can take courses at both campuses. To take a course at the campus that is not considered the student's home campus (i.e., where the student was admitted in the first instance), please contact the JSGS administrative office at your home campus for approval and processing. Courses can fill up quickly so students are encouraged to submit their request as early as possible. The rules and regulations of the university through which the course is taken will apply to the student.

Some JSGS courses may be available online or by videoconference (and will be clearly marked as such), but a majority of the courses require in-person attendance. Students taking a course that is not at their home campus will need to make arrangements to travel to the city in which the course is being offered.


  • Please be aware that condensed Spring/Summer courses may not meet eligibility requirements for student loans.  It is in your best interest to verify block course eligibility in advance of registration.
