Students Asked to Avoid Social Gatherings

Due to the rate of increase in COVID-19 cases among students, San Diego State University has asked students living on campus to stay in their current residences, leaving only for essential needs, through 9 a.m. Sept. 14. Students living in the College Area are also being advised to stay at home and to avoid social gatherings. All students may obtain free COVID testing through Student Health Services and free testing through the County of San Diego, and testing is also available through Imperial County.

Spring 2021
Mostly Virtual

With COVID-19 conditions remaining fluid and unpredictable, the California State University system announced Sept. 10 that SDSU and the other 22 CSU campuses will continue with primarily virtual coursework in spring 2021. There will continue to be limited exceptions for in-person instruction for courses that have specific requirements requiring it.

Plans are to continue to provide on-campus housing for a reduced number of students. The spring class schedule should be available in October, and more information on spring 2021 will come soon.
