SF State Password and Login

Your SF State ID is a nine-digit number assigned to you when you create your SF State account. Your SF State Login is your SF State ID nine-digit number at sfsu.edu, for example 912345678@sfsu.edu.

New Students

New students will need to create an SF State account prior to registering.

Existing Students

If you are a returning student, you can look up your SF State Login online.

Social Security Number

The Internal Revenue Service requires that students provide their Social Security Number when creating their student record in order for the University to generate a 1098-T form for qualified tuition and any education related tax credits. After a student record is set up, students will use their SF State Login for every transaction at the University.

Your SF State Password is a secure password, created by you, that is used with the SF State Login to log in to your student record. If you do not have an SF State Password, you can request one using the SF State Password Service. Part of setting up your SF State Password is to select six security questions and answers that will be used if you need to reset your SF State Password.

If you forgot your password, you can create another password using the SF State Password Service or visit SF State Login.
