Award Adjustments

After census, we make award adjustments based on your enrollment status:

  • Adjustments are based on the number of units you take at SDSU.
  • Award amounts for many aid programs are affected if you are enrolled less than full time.
  • Units taken concurrently (at the same time) at a community college or through the SDSU College of Extended Studies, may be included with your units at SDSU.

    However, aid programs that are specifically for California State University fees such as State University Grant or Cal Grant fee assistance, will be based on regular SDSU enrolled units.

    Learn more about financial aid and concurrent enrollment.
  • Audited courses do not count toward your financial aid units.
