Find Your Community:

City College of San Francisco offers several programs to help you immediately feel a part of the college and take some of the guesswork out of your academic planning.

These programs offer their own sections of English, Math and other general education classes with excellent instructors.

In addition, each program has a designated counselor and often additional tutoring.  You will learn all about these communities at the All-in-One Day orientation. You can also find their information here:



Students in special programs such as: International Students,  EOPS, concurrent High School, and certain vocational programs (e.g.: Culinary Arts and Hospitality, Nursing, Allied Health, Aeronautics, etc.) are required to attend special orientations targeted to those specific programs.
