Welcome to SDSU’s MyState Student Portal

MyState is the center of electronic life for Jackrabbits. When you sign in, you'll see Jackrabbit events, how to apply for housing and parking, and your very own customizable dashboard. But that's just the beginning. You’ll also see YOUR unique class schedule and required textbooks, as well as YOUR scholarships. Need help finding those classes? No problem! Check out the Maps & Parking Info [below].

MyState is nearly perfect, but if you find a glitch, call the Support Call Center at (605)688-6776.
