2023-24 Financial Aid Awarding, Student Financials and my.SDSU

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. Via 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. Students are also able to sign up for Direct Deposit via the my.SDSU Student Financials tile. 

SDSU is a "post-pay" campus. Students pay tuition & fees in my.SDSU after they have enrolled in classes.  

Financial Aid Disbursement and Aid Adjustments

Processing of fall 2023 financial aid disbursements will start one week prior to the start of the semester. The bill due date will be shared soon. Financial aid will be applied to students accounts to cover university charges. Any overage will be directly deposited to the student's bank account. Sign up for direct deposit ASAP. Any remaining balance owed will have to be paid by the student. Be aware that a student's aid is tied to enrollment. Adding or dropping courses may lead to aid fluctuation.

File your 2023-24 FAFSA!

Log into my.SDSU to check for Tasks/ To Do items.

Please pay attention to emails and announcements from the Cal Coast Student Financial Center to stay informed about how to use my.SDSU to pay student charges.

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. Read more in the my.SDSU  Parents & Families Support page.
