Meet State Move-In

SDSU has recently announced a change to the fall 2020 academic calendar with classes beginning on August 19.  Our team and campus partners are planning to help you “Meet State” in August. The move-in process will respond to evolving recommendations from public health authorities (CDC and South Dakota Department of Health). See Move-In schedule for further details related to Drop-N-Go and other move in details. 
 
Our traditional Meet State move-in process will be expanded across several days to begin August 10, in order to enhance social distancing and ensure a thorough welcome to campus. Students should have received information about this phased move-in process including specific details regarding sign-up in mid-July.
