Many of these courses are conducted off campus or online. Students register for these programs through SDSU Global Campus (formerly: College of Extended Studies/ World Campus). Students enrolled through the SDSU Global Campus are not eligible to receive a State University Grant.)

Applying and eligibility for financial aid

To apply for aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The amount and type of aid for which you are eligible is based on your enrollment, the length of the term, your cost of attendance, and other expenses unique to your program.

  • Your enrollment (units enrolled) must be at least half time (6 units for undergraduate and credential students and 5 units as a graduate student).
  • To maximize financial aid eligibility during the fall and spring semesters, you should be at least a half-time student for the full length of the semester. 
  • Cost of attendance is calculated using SDSU's standard cost of attendance modified to include the cost of registering through the SDSU Global Campus.
  • Other expenses: Complete and submit a Student’s Request for a Budget Increase form.
  • To remain eligible for aid, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress.
