Moving CCSF Forward

City College of San Francisco is open and accredited – and moving Forward to become a stronger institution.

In July, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) announced its preliminary decision to terminate City College of San Francisco’s accreditation, effective July 31, 2014.

The Commission’s decision, however, is not final. City College remains open while pursuing a review and appeal process, which could take more than a year. Students now enrolled at City College will have their credits count toward degrees, certificates and transfer, and there is no change to financial aid eligibility or availability.

A special trustee, Dr. Robert Agrella, has been appointed to lead City College as we navigate through the appeals process. We will be communicating with you about our progress toward retaining our accreditation every step of the way.

With assistance from our partners across San Francisco and throughout California, we are committed to ensuring this important institution improves and moves forward to continue serving our community.

We know you will have questions. This website was created to help answer them. We encourage students to continue pursuing their dreams at City College and hope that anyone with a stake in the future of City College will visit this site often for news and updates on our progress.
