Cal State Apply Application

This is our first year using the Cal State Apply application.  It is replacing the CSU Mentor application.  We have worked hard to make this application straight forward and user friendly, but if you have any questions please contact your program coordinator or email

All applicants are required to submit the Cal State Apply application to be considered for Graduate Admission to SDSU.

Tips on Completing the Cal State Apply application 

A second Program application may be required to complete the application process. 

Avoid Delays. Submit early!

Most of the program applications have been created in a system called Interfolio Faculty Search.  This system had been used on campus for Faculty Searches and is being expanded to allow program applications for Fall 2018 admissions.  Links are now available on the Program Admission pages on the left.  If your program is missing you can email for more information.

Program Application Tutorial (using Interfolio)

Please submit your Cal State Apply application as soon as possible.  The deadline is March 1, 2018 for fall 2018 admission.

If you have not yet been assigned your red ID and need to submit your Program application please enter 800000000 as your red ID number; so that you will be able to submit your application by the deadline.


Each Program application is program specific. Be sure to navigate to the correct program admission page PRIOR to starting a Program application.  You will not be able to change the program to which you apply, but will instead have to start a new application.
