3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It's been pretty decent so far, I haven't experienced any real issues.

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: The brand new Wellness Center and MUB are generally great examples how college facilities should be built when properly funded. Due to financial mismanagement, the rest of the campus is in desperate need of modernization and repairs. You can expect to find broken and closed bathrooms, along with a lack of water on certain days. In addition to no AC or heat and poor lighting and seating in classrooms. Most buildings have holes in the walls, peeling paint, neglected or broken equipment.. etc.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Most of the information provided online is unclear and the website leaves much to be desired. You'd be better off talking to a real person at the financial aid office.

College Junior

Career Services: I haven't taken advantage of the services offered here yet.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Students typically go to class and then go to work or go home. The student body is fairly diverse, you can see just about any type of person there, from old to young. Keep in mind that this would not be the school for someone expecting to have a campus social life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I loved being a student at ccsf. I made a lot of new friends in both students and faculty. The workload could sometimes feel a little overbearing but if you stay on top of it you should be fine. I strongly suggest that you attend ccsf and then transfer to a 4 year university because ccsf is dedicated to your success.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: CCSF is pretty affordable and I feel like I'm receiving the same education that I would get if I were attending a 4 year university.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: You'll love everything CCSF has to offer. You might find that they can better some things but overall students ususlly find favor in them

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't have much experience in the career center.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Each semester it's a little hard working my class schedule around my life, but I always find a way to make it work.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I received a heavy workload each semester. The curriculum feels like that of a 4 year university yet it is still doable.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My major is highly competitive. CCSF is doing the best they can to raise my chances.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I have been going to this school for 2 years and I have not yet found a teacher that I hated. Each teacher is well versed in the subject they're teaching and are very friendly and very eager to help.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: You will make friends at this school. I'm not a very social person but I ended up making a few new friends anyway because City College of San Francisco ,focuses heavily on teamwork, esp. when it comes to projects. And the Assisting Learning Center suggests that students study in groups when attending tutoring sessions or workshops

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I love the school , it's such a beautiful campus. It's the staff and faculty that make the school worth attending! Without their kindness, support knowledge in their field and passion for they're career the school would be loser by now!

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It offers many different options of programs and transfer programs. Registration was easy and informative.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The nursing prerequisites and program are impacted and difficult to get into. There are many science classes that most people fail or barley pass.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not used these resources yet

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: People are helpful but, the classes fill up quickly.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love city college becauseof it's beautiful campus with amazing views of San Francisco, the bay, and ocean. It is easily accessable by public transportation and bart. It has a diverse student body from all over the globe. I great college experience.

2 College Junior

Facilities: The school keeps erecting new campuses, but should really focus on maintaining the ones they have. The library is ok, but gloomy, and there aren't a lot of study spaces on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are many resources on campus. The library is a great source, and the Learning Assistance Center has free tutoring for many major subjects.

College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't taken any online classes at City College.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I took a number of years off after High School to pursue other passions, and when I was ready to jump back into academia I had a bit of catching up to do. City College has been an invaluable place to hone my study and writing skills while preparing to transfer to a four year institution for my degree.

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.
