Except for EOP (Educational Opportunity Program) students, applicants do need to submit letters of recommendation or an application essay, and extracurricular involvement is not part of the standard application.

If you want to get in, the first thing to look at is the acceptance rate. But if you fall short on GPA or your SAT/ACT scores, you'll have a very low chance of being admitted, even if you meet the other admissions requirements. Prep Scholar Admissions is the world's best admissions consulting service.
In athletics, the San Diego State Aztecs compete in the NCAA Division I Mountain West Conference.
During the 2017-18 admissions cycle, San Diego State University had an acceptance rate of 34%.
San Diego State University is one of the larger and more selective universities in the California State University System. The green and blue dots in the above graph represent accepted students.
The majority of successful applicants had "B " averages or higher, SAT scores (ERW M) of 950 or higher, and ACT scores of 20 or better.
Higher grades and test scores improve your chances of admission significantly.
You'll notice that some students with lower grades and scores were accepted, and also that there are many spots of red (rejected students) in the middle of the graph.
