To further limit the potential of COVID-19 spreading within our local community, City College of San Francisco temporarily suspended face-to-face student services and instruction. We will continue to offer remote services.

The virtual drop-in hours to meet with the OIP staff are Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. during all regular business days (we will be closed on holidays). During these hours, you can click on the link below to join the virtual OIP:
