What is the Writing Success Project?


WSP is a learning community of students who are actively working on their writing skills at CCSF.  Students enroll in WSP-linked sections of English 92 up through English 1B or 1C.  Each section offers a professional tutor who attends class and leads weekly study groups.


WSP-linked sections are open to all CCSF students, and additional WSP services are available to students who either receive financial aid, or will be the first in their families to graduate from college, or have disabilities, or are US veterans. The WSP is funded by the U.S. Department of Education.


What are the requirements?


All you need to do is enroll in a WSP-linked section, as listed in the CCSF schedule and on the opposite side of this page.  No prior application is necessary.



·         Study groups with tutors who know the readings and assignments

·         A place and time to complete homework each week

·         Priority registration (for students who attend WSP groups)

·         Academic counseling and advising

·         A well-supported classroom experience

·         Stimulating instructors and engaging topics

·         Assistance with scholarship and transfer applications

·         A community of students all working together on writing skills

·         The opportunity to be published in an annual anthology of student writing


The Writing Success Project is a good choice for students who are interested in:


·         Transferring to a four-year college or university

·         Earning an associates degree or a certificate

·         Daytime classes on the Ocean campus

·         Developing writing, team building and cross-cultural communication skills.
