2003 Annual Report

SJSU SLIS is a commuter school. It offers classes at several California State University campuses. SJSU is the main site; CSU Fullerton is where the majority of “Distance Education” classes are held. Because of this, we have two SAASC branches; a North Branch – based at SJSU, and a South Branch – based at CSU Fullerton.
