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. As an applicant to SDSU, you will use your RedID number and WebPortal account to check the status of your application.

Guidelines for Creating an SDSU WebPortal Account

  1. You must have a valid email address to create your SDSU WebPortal account. 
  2. 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.
  3. When you are asked to enter a Social Security Number (SSN), re-enter your RedID number in this field.
  4. 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 registrar@sdsu.edu.
