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 that is used to conduct transactions as it relates to admission, enrollment, and registration. Students use the SDSU WebPortal for checking the status on their application, accessing registration information, ordering transcripts, and updating official contact information.

  1. You must have a valid email address to create your SDSU WebPortal account.

  3. 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
