What's Up With CCSF?
You may have heard that CCSF's accreditation has been pulled effective July 30, 2014. What does that mean for you?
To begin with, the decision has been appealed and is not final. It does not affect you in the Fall 2013 semester nor in the Spring, Summer or Fall 2014 semesters.
All the units you take will still count and will transfer anywhere.
If you will apply for an Associates degree or certificate in any of those semesters it will still be valid. In addition, if eligible, you will still be able to get Financial Aid.
This has been a difficult time for all of us. Know that your Counseling and teaching faculty have done their utmost in an extremely short period of time to meet the requirements of the accrediting body We will continue to provide the excellent assistance in reaching your goals that we have offered you in the past and we will get through this together.
We're still open and we're here for you!
