Dual Enrollment Courses

Do you want to complete general education classes for transfer to university? Are you interested in exploring career fields? Do you want to learn skills for success in college or career? Do you want to earn college credits for work experience? Dual Enrollment can get you there.

My CCSF class was so helpful for my college transition - especially learning Excel. I got so much from the class, including priority registration when I enrolled at my college because I already had college units. If I could talk to my younger self, I'd tell myself to take more classes!
