Make City College FREE for ALL San Franciscans!

City College of San Francisco is on the verge of implementing the historic Free City program and will soon be tuition-free for most students in the Fall 2017 semester. We, the undersigned students, workers and educators are writing to urge you to not include proposed policies which would exclude students (SF Examiner, April 4, 2017) who experience difficult semesters during their academic career.
Think about K-12 public school. Do we send the message to students that that we don't want them to succeed by charging them tuition to continue to attend school even if they are not "A" students? No, we don't. We put systems in place to support students who may need more help. The same should go for Community College.
It common for even the most diligent students to experience dips in their Grade Point Averages. For these students, the promise of Free City is even more critical. CCSF is a place for "students in need of second—and third—chances” so let’s make sure that CCSF remains a place for all students.
