How Do I Log in to my.SDSU Portal?

August 1, 2022


Note: Your screen may look different from the screenshots in this article.

Visit to access the my.SDSU portal.

my.SDSU is role-based and will provide you with the correct access for your role(s). For example, if you are a faculty member, you will only have access to features that faculty regularly use.

If you hold more than one role on campus, such as both faculty and advisor roles, you will have access to features that support faculty and advisor tasks.

Due to the nature of the biographical, demographic, and financial information, you cannot impersonate a specific student, staff, or faculty for security reasons. 

This guide will review how to log into my.SDSU.

Note: If your role requires you to have additional access to my.SDSU, please submit an access request form.
