4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Some of the buildings are a little old looking but there is evidence they are trying to make it more modern and offer lots of activities and clubs

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Wireless is not always reliable

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its bad that international students are charged so much more than resident students, particularly if you have been living in the City for 2 years but because I am on an F1 Visa I am charged 3 times more

4 College Senior

Career Services: Not had much interaction so far but from the conversations I have had they have been helpful

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: As I already mentioned, the professionally and passion of the teachers is one of the highlights. It not only makes the classes interesting but they are able to make their students motivated as well (I wish that students participated more in class...). I have really enjoyed my experience as I have made a lot of great connections and learned quite a lot.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: All the professors that I had are great professionals. Class registration has always been smooth even when traveling abroad. workload varies depending on the courses.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I wish I would have had the time to focus more on psychology related courses. In order to fulfill the GE and the major requirements to transfer I haven't had time to explore other interesting areas of psychology.

4 College Senior

Facilities: What I love about CCSF is that it provides education suited for everyones needs. As a tutor I had young students preparing to transfer to a university, elderly people that wanted to learn something new, or students that wanted to complement their BA education with extra classes. Education is a necessary tool for the masses and CCSF is trying its best to provide it.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have been very lucky throughout the 5 semesters that I have been at CCSF. I have always been able to choose the classes and teachers that I wanted. There is a lot of information about UC and CSU transferrable courses which makes it easier to create an efficient academic plan.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Students come from very diverse backgrounds in all aspects.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't used any services provided by the career center, yet.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I don't have much experiences with American colleges. I like CCSF, is small, cozy, and provides all the services that I need. The wellness center is new and in great condition. The library offers an ok book selection from multiple topics. A new recently opened cafe provides great food and nice atmosphere.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are a lot of computer labs. Printing is also available, with ok prices. I never had any problem with the network.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I'm not enjoying my current online course but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't enjoy another, maybe. I'm taking Asian Art history and I believe that I would be learning so much more if I could be in class with the professor and other students. But I believe that online courses are a great resource for those who don't have the time to go to class.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have an H4 visa which makes it a little complicated when applying for aid. I can't say for sure if the college is doing a good job providing aid to US citizens.

Tuition is expensive for non residents but still more affordable than a 4year college.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: there are many reliable resources at my school . It is easy to get what your looking for.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: the connection is always down.i can't bring my laptop because wifi is bad also.

3 College Senior

Student Body: the student body haven't improved much at the school, they are stingy with the funds of the school and where it goes.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I haven't had a problem with flexibility at this school. Flexibility is good here when picking schedules for classes. I haven't tried to transfer credits yet but I will soon.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had a good time attending this school. The people there that you become friends with make it worth while. But it can tend to feel like high school all over again if you went to high school in the city because so many students go here after they graduate from high school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

As a community college, City College of San Francisco offers a wide variety of courses, ranging from academically-focused classes to more hands-on, vocational classes. Because of the variety of courses offered, City College has a very eclectic student body. It is not rare to find fresh high school graduates sitting in the same class as retirees. But the difference is not simply one of age; there are also students that come from many countries from around the world. 

For many, City College is a place of transition, which gives the school a certain energy. Like most higher learning institutions, what you want and how much you want to get out of your stay at City College depends entirely on your input. What City College offers is a broad and affordable education. The instructors are passionate about their subjects and care deeply about the success and development of their students. Classes are smaller at City College than at larger, more established universities, meaning that students get to know each other on a more personal basis, as do instructors and students. Many City College students transfer to well-established, four-year universities, and many others go on to do greater things for themselves and their communities.
