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!
Review City College of San Francisco
I was surprised by the challenging classes that I found and attended. The accreditation scare made me wary of my time there, but I would say the quality of education for the most part was good. I am a business major. The facilities are also good and getting better. The only complaint that I have is the financial aid scholarship department. We are encouraged in many of our classes to go and apply for the myriad of undistributed scholarships that the school offers, but the few staff members that head that office are extremely unprofessional and make you jump through hoops to get anything at all.
City College has helped me get back up on my feet after giving up on college. They may only be a city college, but they offer so many classes and opportunities that other city colleges don't have. I know many classmates that are successful chefs and nurses due to the programs offered. I wasn't in any programs, but being able to freely talk to my professors was great. They were able to give me strong advice about transferring, which classes to take and now I feel prepared to move on to a 4-year university.

If there's something I'd like to see change at City College, it would be updating/renovating the older buildings as city college has been around for a while.
