5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Won't take me as long as I thought

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Numerous day evening and weekend classes

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: They are for the students

3 College Junior

Online Courses: We have double the work they do in a class room setting

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The staff is very helpful and willing to assist in any way possible

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Homeless at risk is the only one I participate in because I was actually homeless when I started school and the program helps with transportation, food, books, counseling, computers available to use and print

College Freshman

Academic Experience: There's no "mechanical engineering track" here. No major specific stuff. All boils down to the professors. Lab materials are plentiful for the given assignment - enough for all students, always.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Workload is on the intense side, but all professors in the math/science departments are aiming to prepare their students for transfer to UC Berkeley. They teach at a top-notch level (with intense levels of homework, to boot), trying to ensure that all of their students understand the material (especially those still enrolled in the class after the drop date ends). Professors are more than welcome to help a struggling student who cares about getting a good grasp on the material. Most grade fairly (at least in the math/science departments).

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: athletic centers (fitness center, etc.) is absolutely fantastic. new fitness building in 2007 or so. new equipment throughout. Library is pretty good, quiet, good wi-fi, good desks and lighting. campus is ugly, however. the old buildings on campus (cloud hall, particularly) are literally falling apart. Other campus buildings are not in nearly as bad of shape and are actually pleasant to take courses in. Nighttime or daytime.

2 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: administration is a pain in the rear. you're really on your own to figure that end of things out. once figured out, easy. until then, an absolute pain.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the professors make the college 100% worthwhile. public college, so not many services available (cash-strapped CA education system). fantastic professors! many are from UCs or CSUs who, when not teaching there, they teach at CCSF.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: it's a two-year community college. degrees are not things people try to get here, usually. all focused on the transferability of courses.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I have never taken an online course. This review point needs to be skippable.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Everyone and everything here. It's san francisco, so everyone is accepting of anything and everything, for the most part. No weird looks towards anybody, snide comments, etc. Old folks, kids just graduating from high school, all ages, races, genders (yes, "other" is a valid category). Chill people, hard working, not looking for fun... looking to transfer.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Cheap. It's community college. Didn't use financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: Find where the transfer center is and listen to them 100%. If any other department tells you info re transferring, check with the Transfer Center to make sure. Very nice, helpful and small. A receptionist (Very nice!), and two counselors (very nice and helpful!) are available for all students.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Very flexible for the most part.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The teachers they have are very well verse in my major.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: To many to students so they may offer a lot of courses but they are always full.

3 College Junior

Career Services: The sports academic counselor was a big help for me.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: as you probably know, the highest degree you can obtain from ccsf is an AA or AS degrree. I recommend that you only obtain a degree if it would help you transfer to a specific program to a school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the teachers are reasonably fair, although the courses can get a little boring at times. But the teachers and the easy to use web4 system to access student records makes it worth it.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is opend Monday through Friday and the staff is very friendly and they help you a lot during the application process and explain you how to do it and what are the steps of getting the financial aid

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
