Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial Aid was different for me since i added more classes but not the amount i expected.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is somewhat inexpensive. I like how one pays by the amount of credit one takes in a class.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I got to say i'm an international student at CCSF and we are not eligibled for fanancial aid, which is hard because we are also not allowed to get any off campus work. To sum it up, we have higher (!!) tuitions but at the same time are not allowed to get jobs across the city, which has a very high living cost. I think we should have access to financial aid too since we are part of the city now and need to support ourselves too. plus we need a GPA of 2.00 so we gotta study hard as well.

Tuition & Financial Aid: With regard to financial aid, I am always peeved to learn about some kid who is able to live off of his aid payments, while I was given the bare minimum. The financial aid office was helpful, and generally up-beat when assisting me.

During my first semester at the school I was classified as a non-resident. The tuition one pays under that status (five times more than a resident) is ridiculously overpriced for someone in my position: born in this state, had intention of making it once again my permanent home, etc. Decided to put off registering for more classes until I got resident status. Now that I pay a resident tuition rate, I feel the school offers great value for the money.

Apply for financial aid early, be mindful of all deadlines. If you run out before the semester is through, there are other applications for various types of loans to be utilized. The financial aid office has a helpful staff waiting for when the need arises.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
