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

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 Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I was able to get financial aid which paid for all of my classes. I did have to pay for books and other supplies needed out of pocket.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: There was a problem where I was being charged out of state, the day I ask about it they gave me a form and my problems were solved. The form took a few weeks for them to process but they made sure that my classes were not dropped

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Definitely worth the investment reasonably priced and flexible/forgiving with payments

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

It is generally easy to get financial aid at City College. Because City College serves a large group of financially-disadvantaged students, the Financial Aid Office is always crowded at the beginning of the semester. It is good to have your FAFSA filed and ready and not to wait until the last minute to see a financial aid counselor. In general, every student in need will get some kind of financial aid.  

There are various federal- and state-level aids, and there are additional financial aid programs for special groups of students. Beyond that, there is also additional help provided by the EOPS (Extended Opportunity Programs and Services) program at City College. Students are often given MUNI (San Francisco transportation) passes, book vouchers, and food coupons. In addition, there is also a large number of scholarships provided by numerous organizations and school departments, available to students of various backgrounds.
