Enrolling at City College of San Francisco is a fairly easy application, and though still there are multiple of counselors who would help you and guide throughout these steps. There are no complaints about the tuition since it has been free now for two semesters! The professors are academically excelled, the atmosphere of attending a four years university is there, making it transferring to four years a smooth transition.

I have only taken four classes so far at city college, but have been happy so far. I've taken two online courses using their Insight learning system, which was easy to navigate and keep up with. This semester i am taking a tech enhanced class that combines the usual lecture-lab model with Canvas online learning, and it makes completing and submitting the assignments very easy. Classes are appropriately challenging, and the instructors are professional and supportive. Tuition is free for city/state residents!
City College of San Francisco is an amazing place for residence of California who want a free college education, but not so great for out-of-state students. Like most community colleges, there are no housing options. I had to figure everything out on my own, even when I went to the counselors for my first semester. There are amazing students that go here, most are friendly and theres a general comforting vibe surrounding the campus. There are also campus police that work day and night. This campus is very outdated and so are most of their technology available for students. Each classroom is different, some have chalk boards and some have white boards. Some of the professors are amazing and love their jobs, while some are just there for the money. There is a lack of school pride and most athletic games are not announced, same with clubs too. If you are dedicated and willing to push yourself to become more independent and save money, this school is for you.
