City College of San Francisco, Working Adults Degree Program (WADP)

City College of San Francisco offers weekend and night classes that accommodate working adults. The Working Adults Degree Program (WADP) focuses on the general education requirements necessary for Associate or Bachelor degrees. The Mission campus of CCSF is the main site of the programs. It was chosen because it is convenient to public transportation and its smaller size makes attractive to WADP students.

In addition to the regular semester-length classes offered at the Mission Campus, the WADP has offered some courses that last for only 6weeks. During the designated 6 weeks, the classes meet on Friday nights from 6:00-10:00 p.m. AND on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. These accelerated classes have proved popular with students who want to fit in another class in a short time period. The WADP is characterized by a high degree of support and priority registration. The program advisor works closely with students to help them stay focused on reaching their educational goals in the shortest possible time. To be part of the WADP, students must take at least one class at the Mission Campus. As long as that condition is met, priority registration is possible for necessary classes that may not be available at the Mission Campus.
