Effective Fall 2022, SDSU will be transitioning to a singular portal: my.SDSU, that will streamline the enrollment, registration, financial aid and student accounts processes. In addition to this change, SDSU will move to a "post-pay model" for paying Basic Tuition & Fees.

This means you will now pay tuition & fees in my.SDSU after you have enrolled in Fall 2022 classes. The due date for all tuition fees will be September, 12, 2022.

Paying online is the fastest and most secure way to pay. To log in to the payment portal select one of the following links:
