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 opens March 11, 2024, for awards in the 2024-25 academic year. 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 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 Bursar's Office 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) as soon as possible and no later than May 2 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 opens March 11, 2024, for awards in the 2024-25 academic year. Once admitted, complete your Intent to Enroll and activate your SDSUid, and then you 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.

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.

All transfer students are placed in a student success pathway. The completion of the Student Success Pathway Preference Form determines your pathway, which can include a pre-enrolled university seminar course, peer mentoring, and affinity group assignments. Complete and submit the Student Success Pathway Preference Form by May 31, 2024.

Immunization Requirements

All students must meet specific immunization requirements, including the university's COVID-19 requirement.

Immunizations – Due Prior to July 15, 2024

Provide proof of your immunizations and complete your Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment prior to July 15, 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.
