  • Submit Financial Statement Form and Supporting Documents

    All admitted international students planning to attend San Diego State University on an F-1 student visa must submit financial documents issued within the past six months to provide evidence of funding for a minimum of one academic year. Students planning to attend SDSU with other visa categories (i.e. H4 or H1B), permanent residency or U.S. citizenship are not required to submit financial documentation.

    Admitted international students must submit the following:

    Upload these documents to my.SDSU. The SDSU International Student Center (ISC) is responsible for supporting your I-20 issuance and visa processing questions. They will review your financial statement and supporting documents. Your I-20 will be mailed to you once your documents have been approved by the ISC. More information for new international admits is on the International Student Center website.

  • F-1 Visa

    A valid F-1 student visa is required for entry into the United States.

    Once your SDSU Financial Statement Form and supporting documents are approved by the ISC, you will receive an email from the ISC with further instructions and your I-20.

  • Students Attending an Institution in the U.S. or on Post Completion OPT

    Upon completion of your program, you will receive your SDSU I-20 when you current school transfers or "releases" your SEVIS record to SDSU. You must notify the international student advisor at your school of your intent to transfer to SDSU. Please use the admission letter that was emailed to you to provide evidence of your acceptance to SDSU. The SDSU SEVIS School Code is SND214F00142000. SDSU does not use a transfer-in form.

  • Health Insurance

    SDSU requires all enrolled international students to have adequate health insurance that meets the SDSU F-1 requirements before the first day of the semester. Review and follow the health insurance information on the ISC website.

  • Stay alert to communication from the International Student Center (ISC)

    The International Student Center will send multiple emails between now and the beginning of the semester with more details on the items listed above, pre-arrival instructions, and completing the orientation and immigration process upon arrival at SDSU. Please look out for those emails. If you have any questions about these steps, please email [email protected].

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. Future official communication from the university will be delivered to your official SDSU Gmail address after your Intent to Enroll is submitted. Learn more about the student official email address use policy on page 148 of the SDSU Senate Policy.

Immunization Requirements

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.

The F-1 student visa requires you to enroll as a full-time student each semester. As an undergraduate student, you must enroll in a minimum of 12 units per semester to meet the visa immigration requirements. However, we recommend you enroll in 15 units per semester to stay on track to complete your degree. Classes in Extended Studies or Open University do not count toward full-time status.

Incoming students with questions about registration, academic advising, and orientation should contact the New Student and Parent Programs Office at [email protected].

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

For your specific payment deadline to pay your basic tuition and fees, log into your my.SDSU and select the Financial Account tile.

For students using a 529 plan, ePayment options are available.

Disability Services

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.
