It's time to decide how you and your family will finance your SDSU education. Submit the 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.
SDSU will receive your information electronically. Once your application has been received you'll receive an email from the SDSU Financial Aid Office. You'll be directed to log in to my.SDSU to check the status of your application. Visit my.SDSU and select my.SDSU Login. Enter your SDSUid and password, and select Sign In to log in to my.SDSU. If you have questions or problems with your SDSUid, please visit the SDSUid Help page. Additionally, please reach out to the library technology center if you are experiencing difficulties with your account.
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.
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.
Types of Expenses
The expenses are broken down into three different categories because how you are notified about the expenses and pay for them differs.
- Tuition Expenses: these expenses are CSU Basic Tuition and Fees and SDSU campus fees. SDSU does not bill students for these fees. They must be paid after registering for courses each term. 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 SDSU office. They are meant to provide you with an estimate of what you may spend for these goods and services during enrollment.
Determine Your Yearly Expenses
For the most up-to-date costs, review the Estimated Cost of Attendance web page and calculate your yearly expenses.
- 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) when it opens in December 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.
Learn more about applying for financial aid by visiting the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website.
Incoming first-year students who would like to live on campus are encouraged to complete the Student Housing License Agreement, which will be available online through the Housing Portal starting November 1.

Visit the Housing and Residential Education website, select Menu on the upper right-hand corner, and then select Housing Portal under Quick Links.

After you submit your Intent to Enroll, you will receive information about your official SDSU Gmail email address, which is the campus standard for communication and collaboration.

It is important that you fulfill prerequisite courses for mathematics and chemistry prior to your first semester at SDSU in order to stay on track to graduate in four years. Some majors at SDSU recommend taking specific mathematics or chemistry classes during your first semester at SDSU. You must satisfy prerequisites prior to enrolling in these courses, which may be fulfilled with Advanced Placement (AP) credit or college credit that was earned while in high school. If you do not have AP or college credit for the prerequisite courses, then you will need to take the applicable placement exam(s).
Review the Math Placement Information for New First Year Students to determine your first year mathematics class and how you can meet prerequisites. Review the Online Chemistry Placement Assessment web page to determine if you have earned college credit for chemistry. In some instances, you may not be required to take the chemistry and/or mathematics placement exam(s) if you have already received academic course credit. For questions regarding your AP credit, contact the Office of the Registrar at (619) 594-6871. For additional information, review the SDSU Chemistry and Mathematics Placement Exams web page.
All students must meet specific immunization requirements, including the university's COVID-19 requirement.
Immunizations – Due Prior to January 5, 2024
Provide proof of your immunizations and complete your Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment prior to January 5, 2024. Review the Immunization Requirements web page 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. Log in to the HealtheConnect portal and upload your proof of immunizations.
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 staff member in the Well-being & Health Promotion department to learn more about their health insurance and to find local providers who accept their insurance, 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 (NSO) is offered in January for spring 2024 admitted students. NSO will be a hybrid program over two days: online on January 9, 2024, and in-person on January 16, 2024. More information will be available on the New Student Orientation website in November.
During orientation, you will register for spring 2024 classes. You will not be able to register for classes until you have submitted all required transcripts, cleared any registration holds, and provided proof of immunizations.
You can make your NSO reservation online beginning November 14, 2023 at 10 a.m. PST.
Incoming students with questions about spring registration, academic advising, and orientation should contact the New Student and Parent Programs Office at [email protected].

Student Disability Services (SDS) 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 SDS counselor. Their goal is to remove barriers to accessibility so that all students have an equal opportunity to be successful in college. If you will be applying for services from SDS, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible to assure that accommodations are in place by the time you begin your academic journey.
