Cal Coast Student Financial Center:

We will be closed on the holidays listed on the SDSU Academic Calendar.

The center's physical lobby (Student Services West 3615) is open 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. The physical lobby has several private meeting rooms for students to connect to the virtual center help desk.

The CCSFC is accessible through the zoom link on days the campus is open. 

We can help you with questions related to financial aid, scholarships and student accounts.

  • Students: please have your Red ID ready.
  • Parents: please be sure your student is with you or has authorized you to speak with us. FERPA regulations prevent us from speaking with you about personal financial aid information unless your student is with you, or has released authorization to you. Release of authorization is done via my.SDSU in the "Profile" tile. View the steps to release authorization here.

Prior to meeting with one of our counselors, please login to my.SDSU for financial aid, scholarships, billing, payments and refund information.

FAFSA Simplification

dream act changes

Financial Aid Awarding, Student Financials and my.SDSU

my.SDSU is a singular portal that streamlines the enrollment, registration, financial aid and student accounts processes. Through my.SDSU, students are able to view Financial Aid tasks (To-Do Lists), if applicable, and take action for the Fall 2023 - Spring 2024 aid year. 

2024-25 Aid: FAFSA Simplification/CADAA

There are significant changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application and to the CA Dream Act Application (CADAA) application, for the upcoming 2024-2025 aid year! As more information is available, the Cal Coast Student Financial Center will continue to update our webpage, in an effort to educate SDSU students, families and campus partners. As a result of the changes, the FAFSA and Dream Applications were not released until late December. The priority deadline to complete the applications is April 2, 2024. Watch our latest webinars on FAFSA Simplification. They are available via our Recent Webinars and Videos page. 

We highly encourage FAFSA applicants to apply on-line, as paper applications may be processed last. If you do need the paper version, it's available here.

Due to SDSU's implementation of my.SDSU, the CSU-standard system, parent access is impacted. The system as implemented does not support parent access to student information. Read more in the my.SDSU  Parents & Families Support page.
