To begin the financial aid application process, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Application as soon as possible. If you are eligible to complete the FAFSA, be sure to use the IRS data retrieval option when completing your FAFSA to reduce errors and list SDSU's federal school code (001151) on your FAFSA.

It is very important that you check your my.SDSU account regularly for financial aid information. All outstanding documents or requests for additional information will be listed on your Tasks list.

Be sure you activate your SDSUid account. You will not be able to access your financial aid information without an SDSUid. Refer back to Step 1 for SDSUid activation instructions.

Know What to Expect

Attaining a higher education degree is likely one of the most important investments you will make and we want you to understand what your costs at San Diego State University will be so that you can make informed decisions as you and your family prepare for the next step in your education. You and your family should begin carefully budgeting and planning now. Don't wait until you start school! Student and parent loans are available, however, federal regulations limit the annual amount of student loans, and parent loans require a credit check.

Scholarships

Scholarships are available in the Aztec Scholarship portal during the application period, which takes place mid-spring to mid-August. Families should make financial arrangements to pay for university expenses in full. Scholarships are not guaranteed. Apply on the application portal, Aztec Scholarships during the application period.

Types of Expenses

The expenses are broken down into three different categories because how you are notified about the expenses and pay for them is different.

  • Tuition Expenses: these expenses are referred to as Basic Tuition and Fees. Your basic tuition and fees will be due after you register for fall 2022 classes. An email notification will be sent to you with additional fee payment information. Review the Student Account Services website for more information.
  • Living Expenses: these expenses include housing and food. Housing and meal plan fees are billed to students in four installments each semester. An email notification (eBill) is sent each month a payment is due. Review the Housing and Residential Education's Rates and Payments web page for more information about housing fees and SDSU Dining's Meal Plan web page for meal plan information.
  • Additional Expenses: these expenses are an estimate of how much you can expect to pay for transportation, books and supplies, and miscellaneous and personal costs. These expenses are not paid to an office since they reflect your daily expenses and are paid as you purchase them.

Plan Your Finances Checklist

For the most up-to-date costs, review the Estimated Cost of Attendance web page.

  • Calculate Your Costs: Use the SDSU Net Price Calculator to estimate your eligibility for undergraduate federal grants and loans. You can also approximate the net price you and your family should expect to pay using your own funds.
  • Apply for Financial Aid: Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible to be considered for all types of federal aid: grants, student and parent loans, and work study. Be sure to include SDSU (School Code 001151) on your list of schools so that we receive your information. You will use my.SDSU to check your financial aid status. Review the Student Financial Center website for additional information.
  • Apply for Scholarships: Log in to the scholarship application portal, Aztec Scholarships, during the application period, which is mid-spring to mid-August, and apply for scholarships. Once students are admitted, complete their Intent to Enroll, and activate their SDSUID, they may log in to Aztec Scholarships during the application period.

Learn more about applying for financial aid by visiting the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website.

Admitted first-year students from outside SDSU's local admission area are required to live on campus for two years. If applicable, the Student Housing License Agreement will be available to you online through the Housing Portal in early March. A nonrefundable fee of $375 is due with your license agreement.

Review the Office of Housing Administration website for the most up-to-date information on the housing application process and for more information.

All first year students are placed in a student success pathway to connect you academically and socially to the campus community. These success pathways inform your placement into first-year learning communities, pre-enrolled courses, and your assigned Coordinated Care Advisor. The completion of this form* is critical to your fall course registration and your experience at New Student Orientation and must be completed by May 1.

*Form will be available in February.

All students must meet specific immunization requirements, including the university's COVID-19 requirement. An email notification will be sent to you when the HealtheConnect portal is available for uploading documents. Once you receive the email, log in to the HealtheConnect portal and upload your proof of immunizations and complete your Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment. Review the Immunization Requirements website ahead of time to review the requirements that apply to you and begin working with your healthcare professional to ensure you have completed all of the required immunizations. Make sure you have acceptable proof of completed immunizations available for submission. Acceptable proof includes records from your high school, private healthcare provider, local health department, or campus health center.

Health Care Insurance

Medical care is an important part of taking care of one's own health and well-being. SDSU Student Health Services (SHS) is a vital program, but it does not cover medical emergencies, after-hours care, a full range of medical specialists, hospital facilities or other medical services provided outside of SHS. In addition, access to SHS does not meet the government mandate for health insurance. Therefore, it is recommended that students arrange with their health plan to have a local primary care physician.

While the University does not provide accident or health insurance coverage to students, we do have services available to assist students with obtaining or utilizing health care. Students can meet with a specialist in the Well-being & Health Promotion Department to learn more about their health insurance, to find local providers who accept their insurance, to learn where to go in an emergency, and to obtain assistance in accessing specialists. Students can also be connected with an Enrollment Specialist if they are looking to obtain health insurance or to better understand their options. To make an appointment call (619) 594-4133 or find out more on the Well-being & Health Promotion website.

New Student Orientation for first-year students is offered in July. There are several orientation programs to choose from; not all majors are represented on each orientation date. We advise you to not make any travel arrangements to San Diego until after you've registered for orientation. An email notification will be sent to you with additional information.

Information about your basic tuition and fees will be available to you on the Money Matters web page on the Student Account Services website.

Disability Services

The Student Ability Success Center (SASC) at San Diego State University authorizes and provides a variety of services and accommodations, which are determined on a case-by-case basis and in consultation with an SASC counselor. Their goal is to remove barriers that disability creates so that all students have an equal opportunity to be successful in college. If you will be applying for services from the SASC, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible to assure that accommodations are in place by the time you begin your academic journey. Visit Applying to the Student Ability Success Center to learn more about the process.

Keep your grades up!

If you misreported grades for any required courses, your offer of admission may be withdrawn. In addition, you must maintain your overall GPA as reported on the application, and courses taken in your senior year must be completed with grades of C- or higher by the end of the spring 2022 term. If your GPA drops or you earn a D or F during your senior year in any course, any offer of admission may be withdrawn.
