Make-Up High School Credits

If you are missing credits to graduate from high school, then CCSF Credit Recovery is for you!

CCSF’s Transitional Studies Department offers credit recovery classes as a way for current high school students to get on track for graduation. You can take classes that you need in order to graduate, makeup courses you didn't pass the first time around, or retake a course to improve your grade.  And our classes are FREE for all students!

Overview of Credit Recovery Classes

We offer Math, English, History, Science, and Health courses.

You will earn high school credit, but not college credit. (If you are already on track to graduate and are hoping to get a head start on college by earning college credits, see our Concurrent Enrollment page for more information).

Classes are offered in partnership with San Francisco Unified School District but are open to students from any California high school.
