The Year At A Glance: Registration & Finances
SDSU is a pre-pay university meaning Basic Tuition & Fees are due prior to registration. SDSU also has an early registration cycle; plan ahead and don't get caught off guard!
Spring registration begins in November—in the middle of the Fall semester. Basic Tuition is due before you are able to register for the Spring term. If you are not a California resident, Non-Resident Tuition must be paid in addition, but is due before classes begin in January.
Fall registration begins in April—in the middle of the Spring semester. Basic Tuition is due once more before you are able to register for the Fall term. Non-Resident Tuition, if applicable, is due before classes begin in August.
