Step 2—Create an SDSU WebPortal Account

Within two weeks of submitting your Cal State Apply application, you will receive an email from San Diego State University prompting you to create an SDSU WebPortal account. The email will contain your RedID number, which is your SDSU student identification number. The SDSU WebPortal is a system where you can check the status of your application and update your official contact information.

Guidelines for Creating a WebPortal Account

You must have a valid email address to create your SDSU WebPortal account. Check your spam and junk email folders to ensure your privacy settings are not preventing you from receiving email from SDSU. Your email privacy settings should be adjusted to receive SDSU emails. If you need additional assistance activating your SDSU WebPortal account, please contact the SDSU Office of the Registrar at (619) 594-6871 or by email at
