Newly admitted SDSU students who filed the 2023-24 FAFSA and do not have pending items on their To-Do list can view their aid eligibility via my.SDSU in early April.   

Continuing SDSU students who filed the 2023-24 FAFSA and do not have pending items on their To-Do list can view their aid eligibility via my.SDSU in mid June- after spring grades are finalized. 

my.SDSU is a singular portal that streamlines the enrollment, registration, financial aid and student accounts processes.

Parent Access: 

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, but in the future providing this functionality will be a priority.
