Welcome to CCSF Financial Aid Office

Paying for the cost of a college education requires a partnership among parents, students and the college.  Each partner has responsibilities to fulfill in meeting that cost.  Financial aid is money that helps pay for the cost of education (college fees, books and supplies).  City College of San Francisco (CCSF) participates in most Federal and State financial aid programs. The school code is 012874.

Mission Statement:

The purpose of both the Financial Aid and Financial Aid Academic Counseling Office at City College of San Francisco (CCSF) is to provide financial aid assistance and academic eligibility awareness to students as they pursue their educational goals.  The Financial Aid Office provides the opportunity for all current and prospective community college students access to financial aid resources. Therefore, CCSF Financial Aid Office services will strive to:

1.  Comply with federal and state law as well as institutional policies.

2.  Promote and maintain integrity, accuracy and timeliness in delivery of services.

3.  Provide adequate information for students to make informed decisions regarding the financing of their education.
