Step 1:  Apply for Admissions

5 Easy Steps

All NEW and RE-ADMIT students (those who have been away from CCSF for one academic year or more previous to the coming semester) need to submit an admissions application.  

NEW STUDENTS: There are three more steps we ask you to complete (placement test, orientation, meet with a counselor) before you register.


PLEASE NOTE: It is best to list your long-term goal as your objective on your application. For instance, if you are planning to get a certificate in Child Development but may also transfer later, indicate transfer on your application. You can still earn the certiicate!
