What if I want to take a City College class that isn’t listed in this book?
You will need to locate your desired course in the CCSF Class Schedule and list the course number and course on your parent/principal consent form. Then you will need to attend the first class meeting to see if there are seats available and follow the steps to ADD a class listed under the Steps to Enroll page of your booklet. We will not provide textbooks for classes outside of this book and please note that high school students have last priority when it comes to enrolling in college courses not listed in this book.

What do I do if I no longer wish to take a class?
If you received notification that you are enrolled/or are on your instructor's class list you, will need to complete a “SPECIAL H.S. DROP” form (have your ID # handy). You must drop the class by the drop deadline to avoid getting a “W” or an "F" on your transcript. If you are sure you were never enrolled and did not officially add the class, you do not need to do anything.

Do I have to pay for the required textbooks? 
Dual Enrollment students are LOANED the CCSF textbook. Students must follow the mandatory guidelines: Students must submit all required documents on time, attend orientation, and the first day of class where they will be given the textbook. During finals week, students will be notified of a special schedule and drop-off location to return books. Students are required to return the textbook. If textbooks are not received, students will be billed for the cost and will not be allowed to enroll in future courses.
