Parents Information

Greetings Parents!

The MyJacks Card is an essential component of the college living and learning environment for your SDSU student. All SDSU students receive a personalized MyJacks Card which serves as their student identification card, and provides access to dining halls, libraries, campus facilities and events. Hobo Dough is a flexible spending account that is used to cover all of your student's expenses-everything from printing, vending, and laundry to dining out, student health, and pharmacy needs without needing a credit card or cash. See a listing of the off-campus merchants who proudly accept Hobo Dough.
