Important Student CCSFmail Account Information
City College will only use student CCSFmail accounts for official messages. An account has been created for you. If you lost your password or need to reset it you may do so in your Web Stars account. A link to the login page for your CCSFmail account is located here. Make certain that you bookmark the URL as you will not be able to access CCSFmail through the standard Gmail login. IMPORTANT: If you rarely check your CCSFmail, please set up forwarding. Otherwise you will miss important emails from the college and from me. You are responsible for receiving and responding to these messages in a timely manner . Click here for information about forwarding your CCSFmail.

However, one or more assignments will require that you visit the Legion of Honor Museum (new window] in San Francisco (or other ancient art collection in your local region if you do not reside in the San Francisco Bay Area).
