City College of San Francisco


About Us

Since its founding in 1935, City College of San Francisco (CCSF) has evolved into a multicultural, multi-campus community college that is one of the largest in the United States with an enrollment of more than 100,000 students. It’s the second-largest collegiate institution overall.

CCSF was the first college to offer women training as aircraft mechanics, and established one of the first women's studies programs in the nation.

Associate degrees are granted in academic programs such as broadcasting, business, computer science, culinary arts, engineering, fashion, graphic communications, health care, nursing, physical education and dance.

Successful bond initiatives have allowed the college to embark on construction of new campus facilities including the Mission and Chinatown/North Beach Campuses, the Community Health and Wellness Center, the Student Health Services Center, the Child Development and the joint-use classroom building in partnership with San Francisco State University. The Performing Arts Center and an Advanced Technology Building are in the design phase.

CCSF has more than 70 computer labs with approximately 2,100 computers available to CCSF students.
