First Steps

The information outlined here is to help you prepare for your first semester.

Accept admission offer

All newly admitted students must respond online and let us know if they accept our admission offer (AAO). Please access the application on the SF State Gateway website to indicate whether you plan on attending San Francisco State University this Fall. Your response is required in order to register for classes and you will be prompted to sign up for an SF State email account at that time. Once the semester begins, all emails will be sent to your new SF State email address.

Foundation course waiving and course planning

Students who are eligible to waive Foundation courses will receive an email from our office so they can plan their class registration accordingly.

You can refer to the MBA and MSA course requirement pages to find the MBA Program Flowchart (pdf) or MSA Program Flowcharts (pdf) for course planning and choosing classes.

The schedule of classes offered in the spring semester is available on the online class schedule.

Spring 2014 class registration for new incoming students begins January 7

A Deadline to Pay Fees and a January Priority Registration date will be assigned to you by the Registrar's Office. Students are required to select the number of units they plan to take in the Spring and pay the tuition and fees accordingly at least a week prior to registering for classes. You can check your fee payment deadline & priority registration date and pay & register for classes through MySFSU.

We recommend you register for classes on your assigned priority registration date, since some classes fill up quickly. Please complete the Graduate Programs checklist before registering for classes.

A list of the tuition and fees can be found on our website. The Bursar’s office website has the most up-to-date details regarding tuition and fees. You may check the Registrar's Website for more information on class registration deadlines or tuition refund policy.

Graduate Business Programs Email Distribution List

Once you have registered for classes, the College of Business will automatically add your SFSU email address to our email distribution list. Beginning in February you will receive important emails from the Graduate Business Programs office only at your SF State email address. You will also start receiving important deadlines and announcements from the University. So please be sure to check your SFSU email account or forward your messages to your personal email address so you don't miss any of these announcements.
