Admissions

Step 1—Complete the Intent to Enroll Process

Accept Your Offer of Admission by Submitting your Intent to Enroll—Due May 1, 2018

Reserve your place in the fall 2018 class by submitting all of the following items to the SDSU Office of Admissions no later than May 1, 2018. If all of the items are not postmarked by May 1, it will be assumed that you do not plan to attend SDSU and your offer of admission will be canceled.

  1. Accept the offer of admission and submit the online Intent to Enroll $400 nonrefundable deposit in your SDSU WebPortal. The deposit can be paid electronically through the SDSU WebPortal. This deposit will apply toward your fall basic tuition and fees.
  2. Send official copies of the following transcripts:
    • High school transcript(s) (including fall 2017 grades). If you have attended more than one high school, you must submit official transcripts from all high schools attended.
    • Transcripts from all colleges you attended while in high school (including fall 2017 grades). SDSU will only accept electronic transcripts from the schools listed on the Transcripts page. Please ensure that you indicate this preference when making your request.
    Transcripts should be sent directly from your school to the SDSU Office of Admissions. Transcripts for courses taken in the spring must be sent separately.

    Have transcripts mailed to:

  4. Submit Housing License Agreement and $375 nonrefundable initial payment. (Applies only to students required to live on campus. More information is available in Step 4—Apply for Housing.)

Final Official Transcripts—Due July 15, 2018

You must have your school send final official transcripts that include spring 2018 grades and proof of high school graduation.

Your admission eligibility was determined using the information you reported on your application for admission. All courses you listed as in progress or planned in your senior year must be completed with grades of C- or higher. You must also maintain your reported overall grade point average. Your transcript(s) will be used to verify your self-reported information. If your grade point average and/or current course grades drop, or if there is a discrepancy in what you reported on your application compared to your transcript(s), your offer of admission may be withdrawn.

Transcript and Test Score Instructions

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are required from all high schools and colleges you previously attended even if you withdrew from the course(s) or the course(s) were non-academic or not applicable to your college major. College courses listed on high school transcripts will not be considered official.

You must request that official transcripts, on the high school or college official letterhead, be sent directly to the SDSU Office of Admissions either electronically or in a sealed envelope. For a transcript to be considered official, it must remain in its original sealed envelope. If opened, the transcript will no longer be valid. Please request your transcripts as soon as grades are posted so that the transcripts will arrive by the deadline. (Note that it can take several weeks for a school to send a transcript once it is ordered.)

Electronic College Transcripts
You must submit transcripts from all colleges you attended while in high school (including spring 2018 grades). SDSU will only accept electronic transcripts from the schools listed at www.sdsu.edu/electronictranscripts. Please ensure that you indicate this preference when making your request.

SDSU will not accept any transcripts delivered in person or handled by the student. For colleges that do not supply electronic transcripts, the school must send the transcripts directly to:

Office of Admissions
San Diego State University
5500 Campanile Drive
San Diego, CA 92182-7455
