Free tuition, free college in San Francisco

The news is good this year for City College of San Francisco, which badly needs to boost enrollment to make up for thousands of students lost during its recent accreditation crisis: Fall registration is up 16 percent so far over last year, with nearly 4,900 more students.

The threat of closure that hovered over the college for five years has evaporated, and may be one reason for students’ renewed interest. But even more attractive appears to be that, for the first time, taking classes at City College is virtually free for all San Francisco residents who have lived in California for at least a year.
