WHY CHANGE TO my.SDSU?
Why change to my.SDSU?
Here are some of the most important reasons for the switch to a modern Student Information System (SIS) at SDSU.
Better service, accessibility and security
The Financial Aid legacy systems at SDSU were increasingly fragile and at risk of being unable to reliably grant financial aid. This affects six of every ten students (about 16,000) at SDSU.
The new system is accessible via mobile devices, as students have come to expect, replacing fragmented and aged home-grown portals.
It’s safer; WebPortal was unable to leverage multi-factor authentication, leaving vulnerabilities in our IT infrastructure and endangering student, faculty and staff data and privacy
A common system for CSU
my.SDSU aligns SDSU with the 22 other California State University campuses already utilizing the same Student Information System, enabling faster reporting and bringing us into compliance with basic requirements of the Chancellor's Office and WASC recommendations.
Enables adoption of new applications
my.SDSU connects to contemporary software such as Explorance Blue, our new tool to distribute end-of-semester student feedback surveys.
Improved SIS access for the entire campus community
my.SDSU provides a secure, responsive and mobile-friendly application experience, reducing the number of log-in credentials to remember. It creates a consolidated system to access:
- Financial aid
- Academic records
- Class schedules, including add/drop and waitlisting
- Profiles and changes to personal information
- Petitions for course withdrawal, repeats, leaves of absence, applications for graduation, resolving registration holds, and more
- A central, personalized location for to-do "tasks" on financial aid, payments, registration, class rosters and waitlists, submitting grades, and more.
