Steps to Become a CCSF Student

New Noncredit Students

CCSF Noncredit Admission Application

New Noncredit students can complete and submit the online Noncredit Application.

CCSF offers a variety of Federal and State financial aid programs; including grants, fee waivers, work-study, scholarships, and loans.


Noncredit ESL students take the Noncredit ESL Placement to find out which course level is best. You can complete this on your computer. 

For more information, please visit the Assessment Center web page.

Students may complete their new student orientation conducted by a counselor after their noncredit ESL placement test session or the CASAS test.


  1. Schedule a counseling appointment or drop-in session with Counseling Services
  2. During the counseling session students will create a Student Education Plan (SEP).  A Student Education Plan (SEP) is a semester by semester map of the course you need to complete in order to achieve your educational goal at CCSF.
