Compact for Success 2020-2021

For the past 20 years, San Diego State University (SDSU) and Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) maintained a long time commitment to a historic partnership that allows access and success for our students to be admitted to SDSU through the Compact for Success program.

SDSU has provided an update for the Class of 2021 to measure the readiness benchmarks that will allow the university to appropriately project admission and enrollment. SDSU’s goal is to provide the historical levels of access and support so that students may reach their personal and academic career goals. This update contains new information that will impact eligibility for Compact for Success readiness for the Class of 2021.
