4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: CCSF provides a ton of classes in every subject so you find it very easy to find a class to fit your schedule.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Very basic online classes, have taken both hybrid courses and purely online courses and all I could say is that they are not as great as being in a lecture setting, but it does help if you are a student who works through the school week.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: They really want students to transfer and earn more than an AA degree, provide you with a bunch of counseling to create a proper guide plan.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All my courses have been great! I have had really great professors who really care about the student and what they do.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a community college, the most you can receive here is an AA degree. For many careers that is not enough to get by, but for some careers such as construction or being an electrician, it is the only thing you need. I am here to complete my GE courses and transfer to a four year university.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Being a history major in a community college is somewhat difficult, I only take introductory classes that don't really broaden my knowledge past knowing a few facts. Most of my history classes do not require writing or research papers which in my opinion is one of the most important skills of a historian

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very good experience, since it is a community college you meet people from all types of backgrounds and ages.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: MOST classes have multiple sections, though for some, I had to wait for the following year to take a class because they may have only been offered every other semester so if I missed a class that was only offered in the spring, I had to wait for the following spring to take it, or find a different class I may not be as interested in to replace the other.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I have not gone to a counselor for career services/transfers, etc. since I started here in 2013 but from what I have heard, it is hit or miss.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I would come back to CCSF even after transferring. There are many classes to choose from that I've been interested in but have not found the time to take and I would come back to take those classes. I love the environment and the area the Ocean campus is located.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Most professors care/are good at teaching. Some aren't that great but there are many tutoring opportunities offered throughout campus and most students are willing to help each other out.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love CCSF. The professors care and the student body is friendly.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Good school, lots of classes and professors to choose from.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was only at CCSF for three semesters and I learned a lot from not being in school for about a year. It made me realize how much I loved going to school and to learn.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The speech teachers were beyond excellent. They understood that speaking in front of people could be nerve-wrecking, but they gave a lot of advice and what to do when our nerves get the best of us.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: At CCSF all of the teachers were really nice and helpful. The teachers took the time with their students to make sure that they understood the material.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: This question does not apply to me since I have yet to take an online course.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: One of the wonderful commodities of CCSF are the wide range of classes offered for working adults wanting to return to school.

4 College Junior

Career Services: They seem to have a high job placement rate.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are quite engaging and are in your best interest to succeed in your profession.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school has an excellent job placement turnout.

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.
