How to sign up for a program

If you are a SDSU student:   

  1. Start by selecting a program of your choice. 
  2. Once you've found the program you'd like to apply for, click "Apply Now" from within that program's information page.
  3. When asked if you have a User Name and Password, click YES.
  4. Login using your MyState login and password.
  5. To complete your application: 
    1. If the program requires it, click on the link and complete the Study Abroad application.  
    2. Upload your unofficial transcript ONLY if your GPA is less than a 2.5. If it is greater than 2.5, write "Not needed" in the box.
    3. Click on the links, read and electronically sign the Signature documents. 
      1. The three required documents for all programs are the SDSU Behavior agreement document, the SDSU Acceptance of Risk, Release and Waiver document and the Payment/Withdrawal Policy document.  
  6. After these items are completed, you can be approved/or accepted for your program at SDSU. You will know your application is complete when the boxes are all checked. 
  7. Once you have been approved or accepted, you will need to click the Commit button that will appear. Clicking the Commit button means that you agree to take part in the program once the program is confirmed with enough students to go. If you have changed your mind, then click the Decline program to be removed from the program. Please be sure to check your Jack's email for any updates!
