Online Classes

Online classes provide students an opportunity to learn in an environment that is physically remote from instructors and classmates, and at the same time close and personal. Online classes open the classroom to a world of dynamic, diverse content. Some classes require on-campus meetings. Check the instructor's website for specific class information.  

Most CCSF online classes are credit degree applicable classes. As always, student must check with their counselor for specific degree, certificate, and transfer information.

Are You Ready to Take an Online Class?

Online classes provide a great deal of flexibility however, they are not for everyone. To succeed, you have to be self-motivated, possess good study skills, and be an independent learner. Online classes are as challenging as on-campus courses. Online classes are not self-paced. Course assignments, quizzes and exams have deadlines. Some courses have an on-campus component.  

Take a short self evaluation to help you decide if online classes are right for you.

Check to make sure the computer you will be using meets the minimum hardware and software requirements.
