Metro College Success Program

The Metro College Success Program (Metro) uses targeted outreach to support first-generation, low-income and/or historically underrepresented students in their success at San Francisco State University. Metro courses are designed to reinforce the foundation skills needed for college success and throughout life--writing, public speaking, critical thinking and quantitative reasoning. Metro counselors help students stay on track with their course selection for speedy graduation. Our goal is to help students graduate in a timely manner and gain the skills they need to succeed in college and find a meaningful career.

Metro provides a two-year learning community of two courses each semester that share themes such as social justice, education equity, community health, or ethnic studies. Our students receive tutoring, advising and support, and develop strong academic skills. They learn to write and speak with confidence and power, master mathematical concepts, and think critically about real-world issues.

Metro courses satisfy general education requirements for all majors at SF State, which allows students to complete their bachelor’s degrees in any major.
