Join the Metro Transfer Program at CCSF!

Hi again! In this post, I want to cover one of the many amazing transfer programs at CCSF, Metro! I've been apart of this program since Spring 2019 and have received many great benefits from it such as priority registration and exclusive sections just for students of the program. Metro has many advisors that want to support you in graduating and transferring into a 4 year! Their goal is to help you transfer in a timely manner and gain the skills you need to be successful in college and find a meaningful career!

Metro is for students that...

  • Want to transfer to a 4-year university

  • Would benefit from extra support

  • May be the first in their family to go to college

Students of any and all majors are welcome to apply!


What are some benefits of joining the Metro Program?

  • A community of students and faculty

  • Classes that connect to real life
