What happens if City College of San Francisco closes next year?
- In a new report, City College of San Francisco administrators detailed the closing plan for the school should it lose its accreditation next year and be forced to close on July 31.
- The school's 80,000 full- and part-time students would be accepted at 21 community colleges in the area, while San Francisco State University would house students' transcripts and Cal State East Bay would become home to over 11,000 personnel records.
- The nearly $900 million in real estate and personal property may be sold at market price if the Recreation and Parks Department doesn't want them first.
Administrators are referring to the so-called 104-page "closure report" as a "contingency plan" because they intend to turn the school around before then, but the fact that such a report was put together does invoke a sense of impending doom for the school. For students who have completed 75% or more of their studies, some faculty would stay on past the July 31 closing date so they could receive a City College diploma if they'd like to, though it's hard to say why, if it comes down to that, anyone would want a degree from a shuttered college.
