SDSU IV is administered by the Dean of the Campus, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Dean of Students, the Director for Business and Financial Services, and the Director of Development and P3 Initiatives. SDSU IV offers undergraduate education, credential programs for teacher preparation, and various Master’s of Arts programs. There are approximately 1,000 students enrolled each semester.
