Academic Achievement Scholarships

Academic achievement scholarships are competitive scholarships awarded based primarily on your academic achievement in high school. If you are eligible for an academic achievement scholarship, you will receive an invitation from San Diego State University to apply after you have submitted your application for admission through Cal State Apply.

Academic achievement scholarships may be renewed for up to four consecutive academic years (8 semesters) of undergraduate study if you continue to meet the scholarship’s eligibility requirements. You must be enrolled full-time each semester to maintain eligibility.
