of Science The Program is designed so that students
may satisfy the requirements of graduation from the College. Students
who satisfy these requirements receive the major in Photography if
they complete the program of study with a B minus (2.75 grade-point
average) or higher. The program adviser of the Photography Department
will help students who desire to plan special programs of study.
Opportunities Simply stated, articulation deals with
how courses transfer from one college to another. Specifically,
articulation is the process of establishing which courses offered at
City College of San Francisco (CCSF) are comparable to, or acceptable
in lieu of, courses offered at four year colleges and universities.
Many of our students transfer successfully to both public and private
colleges from our program, most entering in as Juniors.
ASSIST is an online student-transfer information system that shows how
course credits earned at one public California college or university
can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official
repository of articulation for California’s public colleges and
universities and provides the most accurate and up-to-date information
about student transfer in California.
