Step 1:  Apply for Admissions

6 Easy Steps

All NEW and RE-ADMIT students (those who have been away from CCSF for one academic year or more previous to the coming semester) need to submit an admissions application.  See link on right column.

NEW STUDENTS: There are three more steps we ask you to complete (placement test, orientation, meet with a counselor) before you register.

PLEASE NOTE: It is best to list your long-term goal as your objective on your application. For instance, if you are planning to get a certificate in Child Development but may also transfer later, indicate transfer on your application. You can still earn the certiicate!
