Step 3: New Student Orientation
All non-exempt new students to City College are required to participate in a New Student Orientation. The orientation answers many of your questions about becoming a student at City College and introduces you to essential programs, services and procedures.
With the newly enacted Assembly Bill 705, we no longer offer the Native English and Math Placement Tests.
You may use your high school transcript, your English/Math coursework from another college/university, or your SAT/ACT/EAP/AP exam scores to determine English and math course eligibility. Please follow this link for more information: www.ccsf.edu/ab705 or contact the Matriculation Office at (415) 239-3751.
Future Orientation + Counseling Workshop dates have not been determined. You can complete the orientation online at www.ccsf.edu/onlineorientation.
Find Your Community:
City College of San Francisco offers several programs to help you immediately feel a part of the college and take some of the guesswork out of your academic planning.
These programs offer their own sections of English, Math and other general education classes with excellent instructors.
In addition, each program has a designated counselor and often additional tutoring. You will learn all about these communities at the All-in-One Day orientation. You can also find their information here:
