Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

The best part about being at City College is you can save thousands of dollars that could go towards other expenses. If you apply for financial aid, then your tuition is for free.
Brittani from Oakland, CA
It's very affordable. It's $26 per unit, and if you get completed the FAFSA, qualify for financial aid and completed a rigorous high school education your total fees may be as low as $8 (thats including tuition, fees, classes). I've heard that for international students it's expensive (but still cheaper than any other school in SF) mainly because they can't apply for the FAFSA.
Ariana from San Francisco, CA
I prefer CCSF over all community colleges in California because of the academic resources that are provided to the student body. Along with those resources come extra curricular activities that give students an avenue to express themselves or take part in . Here you can challenge yourself academically but be able to express yourself in a liberal community that welcomes change and being unique.
