Choose from the lists below to see specific requirements for your program.

Doctoral and Educational Specialist Degrees

Master's Degrees




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

Avoid Delays. Submit early!

Please submit your Cal State Apply application
at least 2-3 weeks prior to the deadline to avoid any delays in getting your SDSU Red ID, processing test scores/transcripts, and submitting your program application. Though you can start sections of the Decision Desk program application without your Red ID, you will need your Red ID to submit the application.
