Check and Accept your Financial Aid on the SF Gateway
Email and the web Gateway are the primary ways our office communicates with you. Be sure that the University has your most current e-mail and check it frequently.
Follow these instructions to access your financial aid status since the award offer is time-sensitive and requires your response by the date posted on your offer. Log in to the link below. Enter your "SF State ID and password". Under STUDENT select "Financial/Jobs" then "view your financial award status":
Direct Deposit : It is the policy of SF State University to use electronic funds transfer (EFT) for the timely disbursement of all financial aid and scholarship refunds. Electronic file transfer, better known as direct deposit, is consistent with the CSU policy of adapting a safe, efficient, and cost-effective method of transmitting financial aid and/or scholarship balance payments directly to students.
