The center gives students and parents a chance to ask questions via Zoom regarding student accounts, financial aid and scholarships. Established in December 2020, the Center’s mission is to assist our students and parents by providing a single point of contact to resolve questions regarding financial aid, scholarships, and student billing issues. Check out our video regarding our services.

The Student Financial Center is Open:

Monday – Thursday from 9am-4:30pm and Friday 9am-3:30pm (PST)


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

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

  • Students: please have your Red ID ready.
  • Parents: make 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 in the "Privacy Settings" in a student's WebPortal account. This could take 24 hours to reflect on our end, so please be aware.

Prior to meeting with one of our counselors, please log into AidLink for information regarding your financial aid and scholarships. Log into your Student Account portal for information correlated to billing, payments and refunds.



The Student Financial Center will remain virtual this fall.

If you prefer to access the virtual help desk via phone, please dial: +1 (669) 900-6833. When prompted, enter the following meeting ID:
