Courses are given 100% online with no on-campus meetings. Nor are there in-person office hours. Students can always reach me through the class forums or by sending an email to my CCSF email address. If you need to speak to a faculty advisor, visit the CS Department Office in Batmale 456.

If you are interested in tutorial assistance, please contact the Academic Computing Resource Center (ACRC) for more information.

CCSF also provides online tutoring for students enrolled in Computer Science courses. Follow the instructions on the Learning Assistance Center’s Online Tutoring page to create your account. CCSF students get up to 20 hours assistance free per semester.

5 CS Department Resources


The CCSF learning management system (LMS) is where you will find the course weekly readings, assignments, discussions, exams and grades. The CCSF Online Learning Team will send you an orientation email with login instructions before the first day of the semester. To log in to the LMS you need a valid CCSF RAM ID.
