What is Non-Credit ESL and who is Eligible?

If a student wants to improve their English language skills, and does not need or want college credits, CCSF offers free non-credit ESL classes to adults in the community to:

  • Anyone who is 18 years of age or older
  • A minor who may benefit from instruction and has  permission from both the local high school and a parent/guardian.

These courses prepare students to function effectively in their daily lives as community members and participants in the workforce. The courses also prepare students to transition to college or technical career training.
