Supporting you for graduation and university transfer is what Metro is all about. Our goal is to help you transfer in a timely manner and gain the skills you need to succeed in college and find a meaningful career.
Metro is a supportive learning community for students who are coming to CCSF with the intent to transfer and might desire additional support. Scholars in the program are part of a cohort or learning community supporting each other every step of the way. Metro Scholars take required Metro classes with the program and also can complete key transfer requirements (English, Math, Communication, Critical Thinking) with their Metro colleagues. Scholars receive support embedded in their classes from Metro tutors and staff and also have access to the Metro Resource Room, academic counseling, mentoring and other great resources.
Any future or current CCSF student can apply to Metro for either the fall or spring semesters. Admissions is ongoing and seats are available until filled. Metro scholars have the availability and commitment to attend college full time.
Metro supports students in transferring to any school of their choice. Metro Scholars have transferred to a range of CSU, UC, Private, and Out of State schools including:
San Francisco State University, San Jose State University, CSU Sacramento, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, University of San Francisco, USC (University of South California), Temple University, Columbia University, and many more.
Metro provides support for students at CCSF until they complete the transfer process. We like to say "Once Metro, always Metro". Metro Scholars generally complete the Metro courses in 2 years but support is provided until they begin their work at the 4 year-University.
Yes, many of our Metro Scholars are in additional support programs (like EOPS) and Metro at the same time. The criteria for being accepted into EOPS differs from Metro's. Visit the EOPS Website to learn more and to see if you are eligible to apply to EOPS.
