Welcome to International Programs at City College of San Francisco

City College of San Francisco welcomes International Students from throughout the world. Our International Student Programs encompass the Academic and Institute for International Students (aka Intensive English Program). There are currently over 1200 students from 90 countries studying at our various campuses. Their presence complements a broad mosaic of multi-ethnic students from San Francisco.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service has authorized City College of San Francisco under federal regulations to enroll qualified non-immigrant students. Each semester the College admits international students without reference to a quota. City College of San Francisco is fully accredited by ACCJC, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. The Institute for International Students, and intensive English program is also supported by AAIEP, the American Association of Intensive English Programs.
